I'm leaving for Kentucky tomorrow morning for UK's Conventiculum Latinum. I'll be speaking nothing but Latin for a whole week.
Last month I was a counselor for Christendom's first Latin Immersion week. Thirty high school students were willing to spend a week of their summer at a little Catholic college, learning to speak Latin. They made a huge amount of progress - at the end of the week we went to DC, and they were chattering in Latin on the metro. (This got us a few confused looks.) Then they celebrated by having a toga party back on campus and mobbing the little convenience store up the road to buy ice cream. The cashier decided that they were speaking Spanish. I'm excited about going to one of these events as just a student, and I hope to get some direction from it as well as a whole lot of Latin. Valete in proximum!
