Computers in education are an integral part of the teaching process, but the use of them mostly depends on the competence and willingness of individual teachers, as well as the availability of adequate hardware and software. When it comes to learning a language, computer assisted language learning software mostly covers languages such as English, or German, while other, less popular languages still do not have a good software foundation. The interactive application for learning the Latin language is an example of software that seeks to facilitate students studying Latin within all grammar schools in Croatia. The Latin language, although very often called a dead language, is still a part of the culture in general, and important in fields such as medicine, law, agriculture, etc. Results obtained by our research confirm that students are willing to use such software and that the increase in student motivation and interest are proportional to the final test results.
