“The best professional development our school provides.”

“I look forward to the Biduum every year. It is a unique opportunity to speak Latin with other people and I always come away with some many ideas for my classroom.”

“The Biduum was a wonderful opportunity to learn from master language teachers, hone my Latin speaking abilities, and connect with other instructors from the area. It was also tons of fun – a true highlight!”

“I never thought I would laugh so hard in a classroom”

“I loved the Biduum! It opened my eyes and ears to new possibilities in my classrooms”

“Thank you for making this conference a place I could get out of my comfort zone and not be intimidated…”

“So. Much. Fun.”

“Amazing conference with great presentations”

“Having studied Latin for twenty years or so, this seminar gave me the invaluable experience of encountering the language in a new and direct way. To hear and understand a lecture given in Latin is truly an exquisite delight.”

“This was an awesome conference. Love the immersion!”
