Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur.
Students of Latin know this sentence as the very famous opening sentence of Caesar’s Commentary, De Bello Gallico. Translated the sentence says
“All Gaul is divided into three parts, one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani another, those who in their own language are called Celts, in ours Gauls, the third.”
This is my artwork of what that sentence looks like in my head.
I took two years of Latin in High School, and I’m glad.
“East Greenwich High School is a public secondary school located in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, U.S. The school serves students in grades 9-12 in the East Greenwich Public Schools system. East Greenwich is the wealthiest town in Rhode Island, and EGHS is the highest performing high school in the state. It is the only school in the country with the mascot, the “Avengers”. East Greenwich High School was ranked 824 on Newsweek’s list of America’s Top 1,000 high schools out of approximately 31,700 high schools in the United States. It was the only public high school in Rhode Island to make the list.”
I don’t think they offer Latin anymore at my HS but they still offer Spanish and French, which I also took. I think languages do a body good. But I think they ought to offer Latin. If you graduate Summa C-u-m Laude, then you will know what it means.
