Like summiting Mount Everest (or waking up on a workday), learning Latin is a challenge that requires discipline, drill, and daily dedication. While this may be hard for some, with Brainscape in your corner—the world’s smartest flashcard app—Latin can be infinitely easier!

We’ve curated a comprehensive collection of Latin flashcards to help you master the language word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase in a way that is efficient, engaging, and supported by cognitive science!

*In·fi·nite: from Latin infinitus, from in- ‘not’ + finitus ‘finished, finite’

Learning Latin, the easier way

For millennia, Latin has been a punishing mistress to millions of students. But Brainscape has tamed the dragon, distilling its teachings down into bite-sized question-and-answer facts. Where before there seemed to be an insurmountable mass of vocabulary, verb suffixes, and sentence construction protocols, is now a clear and steady ascent towards Latin mastery.

Brainscape’s Latin flashcards make learning this ancient language much easier—which is far more motivating—and more efficient, which means you’ll soon be plowing through the historical works of Cicero, while your classmates are still trying to count to 10.

Also, because the Brainscape app is designed in accordance with key cognitive science principles, you’ll remember what you learn for much longer!

*Cog·ni·tive: late 16th century: from medieval Latin cognitivus, from cognit- ‘known’, from the verb cognoscere

Brainscape helps you learn faster and remember for longer

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of Latin content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
