Calvin University and various Classical schools throughout the United States provide a 2-day workshop for those wanting to learn or practice speaking Latin and Greek.
The biduum (two day event) includes Latin and Greek discussion in a relaxed and informal setting. Depending on the track chosen, the sessions may include: discussing excerpts from literature in the target language; learning how to hold conversations about every-day topics such as family, weather, and food; and demonstrating pedagogical techniques and tools that incorporate spoken approaches and activities.
