Latin Root: We Learn, We Teach
by John Gourley
Dear Latin Teacher,
What is the Latin translation for "we learn, we teach?"
We learn is discimus
, we teach is docemus
. A simple phrase might be discimus et docemus
You may recognize the following English derivatives. From the Latin verb to learn (disco, discere, didici
) we have disciple, discipline, and disciplinarian. From the Latin verb to teach (doceo, docere, docui, doctus
) we have doctor, indoctrinate, doctrinaire, et cetera.
