Latin Translation: From Within I Am Fire; Rosetta Stone for Latin?
I have been searching all over for a way to translate a phrase... I was hoping I could have it done here.
The phrase is: "From within I am fire"
So far I managed to piece together "Ex e sum ignis" Is this correct? If so, would "sum ignis" mean "I am fire"? What would be the translation for this: "My path is destruction"
Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it.

P.s. What, in your opinion, would be the best way to go about learning Latin? If I am correct there is Rosetta Stone for Latin.
Yes, sum ignis
means I am fire. For your whole Latin phrase, add the adverb penitus
, meaning from deep within. So:Penitus sum ignis.
One possibility for "My path is destruction": Meatus meus est pernicies
As for the best way to learn Latin, I always recommend this textbook from Hans Oerberg: Lingua Latina: Pars I: Familia Romana (Pt. 1) (Latin Edition)
And here is my other website for help using it: Teach and Learn Latin Online
. I teach this book in my high school Latin program.
As for Rosetta Stone: Rosetta Stone V3: Latin Level 1 with Audio Companion
. I have never used it or seen it. As of this writing, it has 1 and 1/2 stars at Amazon.
