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.
