students taking Latin generally do not do so to speak the language,
listening skills are nevertheless an important tool in learning how to
read any language, including Latin. The FORUM ROMANUM video series
developed by the National Latin Exam is an excellent way for Latin
students to learn how to listen to spoken Latin.
The purpose of this
presentation is to describe ways in which FORUM ROMANUM is used for such
a purpose in a
time will be set aside during the presentation for the audience to
brainstorm about ways in the goals and techniques used in this course
can be applied in other Latin programs, both in high school and college.
