Hi everyone! I am going to be taking Latin next quarter in college and I have been doing some research to better prepare myself. Through this research I found out that while learning Latin you really don't actually converse in it very much, rather you just read/write/translate it. First of all I guess I'm wondering if this is true and secondly if it is true is it impossible to hold conversations in Latin? I understand it is a "dead language" so there are no native speakers of it but why can't you still learn how to speak it in class with fellow students?
