As the movement toward national standards for foreign language proficiency gains momentum, many states have already instituted their own guidelines which include oral proficiency among the requirements. (Read the author's note on this subject.)

Traupman's book is an excellent resource for helping teachers introduce or enhance the oral experience in the Latin classroom.

The Conversational Latin cassette is an hour long recording of the conversations from chapters 1-12 (all three levels) of the text (imperfect but acceptable recording).

Appendices on colors and numbers, colloquial expressions, and sayings and proverbs

From the Publisher:

Traupman's text enables students to engage in one of the most productive practices in the acquisition of language skills and conversing. Latin is the language that gave birth to the modern romance languages; it can and should be spoken to enhance the learning experience. Conversational Latin includes:
- Multi-level dialogs with authentic Roman expression
- Facing English translation
- A variety of contemporary and ancient topics
- Topical vocabulary for each chapter
- A comprehensive glossary
- Appendices on "Yes and No in Latin," "Colors and Numbers," and "Sayings and Proverbs"

From the Author:

"Unlike your usual textbook, this book allows you to start at any chapter that interests you. Why? Because the chapters are not arranged in the order of difficulty. On the other hand, the model conversations in each chapter are arranged in the order of difficulty. That is, grammatical structures of the conversations of Level 1 are simpler than those of Levels 2 and 3. Therefore it is quite possible to go through the entire book using only the conversations of Level I and then go through the book again, using Levels 2 and 3. . . . In conversational Latin, meaningful and realistic communication is the aim and goal. Accuracy comes with practice." - From the Author's How to Use This Book.
