by John Traupman
Conversational Latin is an excellent dual-language resource for exploring ancient and contemporary topics—ranging from the weather to politics—in lively Latin dialogs with authentic Roman expression. Each chapter offers three conversations in varying degrees of difficulty, supported by Topical Vocabularies.
This new edition has all the features of the previous three editions, plus ten new pages of words in the General Vocabulary, new additions to the Topical Vocabularies, and nine songs and The Pledge of Allegiance in Latin.
Teachers in English-speaking countries who understand the value of active Latin in the classroom finally have the tool they need. John Traupman has given us a well-designed textbook in English for spoken Latin, which exploits a wide range of subject matter. Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency will help us restore an excellent tradition of instruction in Latin fluency that extends back to the Colloquia familiaria of Erasmus and beyond.–Terence O. Tunberg, University of Kentucky
John Traupman has given us an indispensible book for the active Latin classroom.–Jeffrey Wills, University of Wisconsin
Professor Traupman’s Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency is a locus classicus for any teacher planning to introduce oral Latin into the classroom.–Dr. Rudolph Masciantonio
With Traupman’s work...we can quickly and successfully kill the “dead language” albatross...–John H. Starks, Jr., UNC, Chapel Hill
ii + 414 pp. (2007) Hardbound, ISBN 978-0-86516-645-5
