How is the Latin alphabet different from the English alphabet?
The Latin alphabet IS the same as the English alphabet, with the exception of a few letters. The Modern Latin Alphabet is exactly the same as the English Alphabet. The Classic Latin alphabet is missing J, U, and W. There were no lower case letters at first, and K, Y and Z used only for writing words of Greek origin. The letters J, U and W were added to the alphabet at a later stage to write languages other than Latin. J is a variant of I, U is a variant of V, and W was introduced as a 'double-v' to make a distinction between the sounds we know as 'v' and 'w' which was unnecessary in Latin.
What was the first alphabet?
The earliest alphabet was created by the Egyptians around 2700 BCE. It was a set of 24 hieroglyphics that represented consonant sounds. But they didn't write solely with these "letters." They mixed them with other hieroglyphs that represented whole words. The Phoenicians were the first to come up with a writing system based ONLY on sounds. It was an Alphabet of 22 consonants and no vowels. This alphabet was established prior to 1050 BCE.
