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 Coloquia familiaria of Erasmus and beyond. --Terence O. Tunberg, University of Kentucky
Who says there's no time or place for spoken Latin in the classroom? Quisquiliae [Hogwash]!! Give Traupman's Conversational Latin a try. You and your students will find plenty of hilaria mera. --Margaret A. Brucia
With the growing emphasis on oral components in the teaching of Latin at the primary and secondary level, instructors have been hard pressed to find an instructional text which is legitimately conversational and yet avoids much of the embarrassment of the late twentieth century American jargon awkwardly translated into Latin and passed off as the 'real thing.' Traupman's recently published Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency manages to find a reasonable middle ground between the demands of modern living and recognizably idiomatic Latin. --Jerry Clack, Duquesne University
Conversational Latin is an excellent dual-language resource for exploring ancient and contemporary topics--ranging from the weather to politics--in lively dialogs with authentic Roman expression. Each chapter offers 3 conversations in varying degrees of difficulty supported by topical vocabulary. Latin as a living and vital language is showcased in this indispensable supplement to any standard Latin course of study. Traupman's book provides facing English translation; a comprehensive glossary; and appendices on 'Yes and No in Latin,' 'Colors and Numbers,' and 'Sayings and Proverbs.'
