The Eastern Romance languages are a group of Romance languages. Today, the group consists of the Daco-Romance  subgroup, which comprises the Romanian language (Daco-Romanian), Aromanian language and two other related minor languages, Megleno-Romanian , and Istro-Romanian .
Knowing Latin makes it easier to learn the Romance languages. People still read Latin classics such as the poems of Virgil, the memoirs of Caesar and the speeches of Cicero. Also, Latin is widely used as an international auxiliary language, notably in the Catholic Church, and by biologists when describing and naming new species.
