why there are no speaking exercises?

sorry if this question has already been answered

Because the Romans from the Classical Latin Period all died around 2000 years ago and no one survived to check your answer.

Or maybe because it's only a beta course and they haven't yet managed to add them - more likely, because they weren't able to use the usual text-to-speech engines in the course and all the speaking is real people, so, conversely, they weren't able to use the speech-to-text engines to check the speaking.


TTS engines are language specific, and "the usual" ones would not be suitable.


For the same reason that the audio consists of live recordings: there is no software (TTS or text-to-speech engine) available that processes Latin.
