And if you think, for instance, that Latin is unfamiliar to you then you are misinformed by yourself. For example, there are many words of Latin or Greek origin in each native language of European countries or in the USA, such common words as "biography, photography, autograph, philosophy, autobiography, supernatural etc".

In this way, Latin and Greek learning are important, especially for students and learners of foreign languages. However, this does not necessarily mean that you have to master those languages perfectly. It would be enough will aware of meanings Greek and Latin roots and affixes, suffixes etc.
You could appreciate this knowledge in a situation when you will do an exercise on word formation.

Also, you can regain control of understanding the context of a piece of writing or speech because you will have knowledge of Latin and Greek, and if you have words for example, with the root "phobia" you can recall words like "hydrophobia or claustrophobia" and you can be sure that it will be about some fear, or with the prefix "pseudo-" and you will know that it mens false than "pseudo-scientist" means the person who pretends to be a scientist. 

But don't put significance from unfamiliar word on familiar words such as "type subtropical climate" means climate between tropical and temperate, but "sub-" means  under, like "submarine". In addition, it will help expand your vocabulary words. So, good luck in learning Latin and Greek root and affixes!
