dude. latin is not hard. You can just memorize stuff. You don't even have to do that. Just sit there in class, and you will absorb enough to get by.

Just by sitting in class, you get a basic grasp for vocabulary. Put the words together, and your brain works out how they're supposed to fit. Our brains are cool like that.

You sit through a year and a half of Latin, and you will learn the basic words. It takes no effort. You learn some basic words, and your brain will figure out how they're supposed to go together. You don't even have to try--your brain automatically does the work for you. Human brains are smart like that.

Then, if you think about how the words go together, you understand why. You start to understand grammar--not just Latin, but grammar in general. If you just think about it, your brain will do the rest--you don't have to try very hard. Humans have a natural grasp for language.

Don't want to give the effort to understand how they go together? That's okay. You won't learn grammar. At the least, you learn word roots, which give you the basic understanding to learn any of the romance langauges. French, Spanish, Italian.

Wanna be one of those people who say, "oh, I can speak seven languages?" Learn Latin. The rest is cake. Latin is not hard. Give it attention, and you will be one of those seven-language people.
