How much theory/grammar do I really need when studying Latin? I stopped studying Latin when I realised I was forced to studying grammar like a grammar nerd. Some theory is needed but not too much like the amount need to take a course in Latin. What amount of grammar is enough? I really like the videos by Evan Millner since I am not a grammar nerd. How much time should be spent learning Latin per day if you are a beginner? How deep understanding is needed before I can say that I understand a text? If I for examaple take the Credo I could read and that I ubderstand it without having a very deep understanding of its grammar. If I would play it on an organ (I mean the tune called Credo III) I could just learn the basic practical theory of church modes and accompaniment and it would suffice. With Latin we are forced to have deep theoretical understanding. Whay do I need?
