Best Answer

The Romans spoke Latin and they took the language with them as they expanded. At least five major European languages are based on Latin. These languages are known as the Romance languages--Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Romanian. English too, has a strong Latin influence, although is is not actually a "grandchild" of Latin.

The educated Romans spoke Greek in addition to Latin. Greek was the diplomatic language of the ancient world, much like French was in the 40' and 50's.
