Latin – Lesson 2

That is Latin for “I came, I saw, I conquered”.

“avenue” comes from veni.

“video” comes from vidi.

“invincible” and “convince” come from the Latin verb vici/vinco.

Invincible means not-conquerable.

And convince means to conquer-with.

Beginning Latin

Those are Latin words that are on coins.

Latin is a really old language.

A lot of English words come Latin.

E means “out from”

Pluribus means “many”

Unum means “one”

So “E Pluribus Unum” means “out of many one”.

It means that America is made of many different people but it’s one country.
