Have you ever wondered what language the popular phrase on the back of the United States penny "E Plurubus Unum" is in?

Latin is often considered to be a dead language, however, it lives within many modern languages including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian and has had a significant influence in the development of the English language as well. It's origin dates back to Ancient Rome and with the spread of the Roman Empire, it comes as no surprise the long-lasting impact that the language has had in linguistic development across the world. Outside of currency, traces of Latin are found in many aspects of biological taxonomy and law and is still spoken fluently by Christian clergy members, students and scholars across the world.

Knowledge of Latin, if nothing else, gives students an advantage in understanding how the Romance Languages are constructed and prepares them for succcess in learning these languages also.
