Where have all the Rhapsodes gone?

Homer Sung Aloud, in yet another variant via Banana Republican. I prefer my own untutored version, fool that I am. I have two regrets about my classical language training:
1) We rarely read aloud. "Until it is spoken, it is not heard" and hearing is essential to linguistic mastery.
2) We never had composition assignments. How were we supposed to learn the language without writing in it?
