My memories of Latin consist of translating sentences along the lines of "The sailors are chasing the girls into the woods whilst the freed slave rejoices!"
When we were not doing this, we were being beaten; as Latin teachers were traditionally very strict.
Anyway, to the point. Latin and Greek are disappearing from schools faster than those sailors above. Last year there were only 864 Classics students starting at University. (As opposed to about 3.5 million doing Media Studies)
Is this another example of the ongoing decline in our Country or should we be glad to see the back of such outdated, archaic stuff?
