What's wrong with "we visit the speaker in the forum"?
Nothing. It should be accepted.
How about: "We go to see the orator in the forum." Cicero is speaking today--no one wants to miss that!!
Who is an Orator?
A public speaker = politician. One trained in rhetoric, the art of persuading others to your viewpoint.
I'm glad it's not just me
The speaker has a very strong Germanic accent. ”Oratorem” and ”visitamus” sound like ”orathorem” and ”visithamus”.
Why! Again this impossible audio voice!
The first time coming across oratorem I tried to think of what orator could potentially mean, relevant to speech - and what came to mind was "Words-smith"!
Replace this speaker. The last word sounded like "visitas" to me
She has a noticeable "sing song" diction but a greater problem seems to be the poor recording environment and/or that the audio data is compressed to the point where it's difficult to understand her.
