Thank you for your
inquiry. I will try to answer your feedback in a few parts below.
First, the consensus
here is that the easiest way to learn Latin for Mass is to simply attend the
Latin Mass. The more Latin Masses you attend, the more you should pick up. There
are some 'very easy-to-use missals' that many parishes have (perhaps the 'red
Missal' put out by the Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei). If your parish
doesn't provide them, you might find them 'inexpensively' online. If you follow
along in such a missal, you should pick up many Latin words and become much more
proficient in pronunciation over time.
Second, there are a
few resources on our site that may be helpful. For example... (click links to

Third, for inexpensive
or free resources you can try looking online. Examples of resources you may find
online include: Rosary said in Latin, recorded Latin Masses, Gregorian chant,
Latin courses, Latin books, Latin dictionaries, etc. There may also be groups or
websites that assist with Latin questions or provide Latin instruction. Please
note that Ecclesial Latin (Church Latin) is a bit different than "regular Latin"
so you may want to keep this in mind when you are evaluating resources.
[Note: While we have a number of Latin resources here, we unfortunately do not
have any "Latin experts".]
Again, our best advice
for learning Latin for Mass is simply attending the Traditional Latin Mass.
Sometimes "doing" is the easiest way to learn. And, it won't cost you any extra.
Plus, if you have quick Latin questions you may be able to ask the priest who
celebrates Mass in Latin.
