This book is the first in its field. It showcases current and emerging communicative practices in the teaching and learning of ancient languages (Latin and Greek) across contemporary education in the US, the UK, South America and continental Europe. In all these parts of the globe, communicative approaches are increasingly being accepted as showing benefits for learners in school, university and college classrooms, as well as at specialist conferences which allow for total immersion in an ancient language. These approaches are characterised by interaction with others using the ancient language. They may include various means and modalities such as face-to-face conversations and written communication. The ultimate aim is to optimise the facility to read such languages with comprehension and engagement. The examples showcased in this volume provide readers with a vital survey of the most current issues in communicative language teaching, helping them to explore and consider adoption of a wider range of pedagogical practices, and encouraging them to develop tools to promote engagement and retention of a wider variety of students than currently find ancient languages accessible. Both new and experienced teachers and learners can build on the experiences and ideas in this volume to explore the value of these approaches in their own classrooms.

This book provides a welcome (and indeed overdue) contribution to the discussion of language pedagogy in Classics. The diversity of approaches and settings in this volume will appeal equally to the communicative convert, the novice and to anyone interested in advancing their understanding of Latin and Greek pedagogy. -- Aisha Khan-Evans, Lecturer in Classics Education, King's College London, UK
All of the contributors are owed a great deal of thanks from the Classics-teaching community for contributing to this innovative and forward-thinking volume. * Classics for All *
Represents a significant step forward in the development, and push, for various groups, individuals and institutions practising or advocating these approaches in historical languages. * The Classical Review *
[T]here is much here for all looking to shift their pedagogy and add new teaching tools ... No clearer explication of the need for change can be found than in Communicative Approaches, whose contributors' teaching reflects the realities of Latin and Greek instruction, which is sustained in large part by the creativity and commitment of its teachers. * The Classical Outlook *
