Pueriles Confabulatiunculae

 INDEX TO CHILDREN'S TALKE 

Simple Latin Scripted Dialogues for Young Children.

Text 

Written by Charles Hoole in London in the early 1600s, first issued in manuscript around 1650, this reading is from the 1697 edition.

This text was commonly used in English grammar schools at this time. Hoole was influenced by Comenius - and Hoole's textbooks can be seen as a supplement to Comenius - but they are, to my mind, more interesting. For example, this text uses entertaining  scripted dialogues after Chapter 4.


Each chapter is read in Latin and English, phrase by phrase, and then repeated in Latin only.

 Chapter 1. 

 Chapter 2. 

 Chapter 3. 

 Chapter 4. 

 Chapter 5. 

 Chapter 6.

 Chapter 7.

 Chapter 8.

 Chapter 9.
