Locutorium Scholae

Postby metrodorus » Thu Dec 31, 2009 12:38 am

Since Christmas, the locutorium on Schola has been very busy.

Laura Gibbs hosted a taught session, where participants read from the Dialogi Sacri of Castellion. 14 people turned up, and the entire proceedings were conducted in Latin. This session lasted for over two hours. In addition, there is an ongoing reading group, working its way through the Praxis Comica (Schola Ludus)of Comenius. Aloisius Miraglia,( now a regular visitor) among others has been dropping in to talk to people. Over the holiday period, the chatroom has had an ongoing Latin conversation in audio, ongoing pretty much uninterrupted, for over 5 days. People turning up to chat have come from Sweden, Former USSR, Japan, Australia, USA, South America - just about any location you care to name. A few students from Kentucky have also been dropping in, and we will see more from these when the new term starts up.

Laura Gibb's session will take place weekly - it is announced on the main page of Schola, in the eventus section. I am currently organizing other sessions by noted Latinists. Anyone is free to attend but all communication needs to be in Latin only. You can either pop in and listen only, or listen and talk back, or listen and type back, or only use script. There is also free chat ad libertum, and users come and go from the room frequently, so even if no-one is 'in', hanging around for a short time is worth it, if you want to talk to someone in Latin, or read and discuss a text with someone in Latin.

You can access the Locutorium from the viva voce tab on schola's main page.
I run http://latinum.org.uk which provides the Adler Audio Latin Course, other audio materials, and additional free materials on YouTube.
