hi all
does anyone know of a good way to improve my latin speaking abilities, apart from the conventiculum in kentucky or the latin summer school in rome. i have been studying the language for about 12 and a half years.i have had 2 tutors who improved my grammar and vocab' but havent done much for my speaking.i find adler by evan milner useful but it would be better if i could ask questions to another person rather than asking and answering myself
thanks
little flower.

You could listen to podcasts in Latin. There are quite a few. Then you could find somebody to talk with through Skype. You can read a book together, paraphrase, and ask each other questions all in Latin.

The Telepaideia conversational Latin courses may be an option.
