Use the Audiobook for practical classroom listening activities (e.g. dictations, listen & draw, listen & discuss, etc.), for exposure to a different Latin speaker (which also means a break for YOU), and of course, pure entertainment! In addition, Tracks 10 to 16 feature 20% faster speaking in order to build fluency, or to challenge older students you *think* are way beyond Rūfus.
This is not just audio. There are pauses and sound effects to aid comprehension, drum sounds during page turns, and intro/outro music for ambiance. The sound effects were free online. I composed the music, and recorded the voices (with special guest, Marina Papaiakovou, as Rufus).
Here are excerpts from each chapter:
- Intro music, and first page of Chapter 1
- Piso, page turn, and Rufus in Chapter 2
- Narration, sound effects, page turn in Chapter 3
- Romans cheering, Oenobatiatus, narration, and outro music of Chapter 4
- Page turn, narration, Rufus, and outro music of Chapter 5
- Narration, sound effects, Oenobatiatus, “male olet” scene w/ Rufus, gladiators, and Oenobatiatus, and a page turn from Chapter 6
- Narration, and sound effects from Chapter 7
