I think I know at least 10% of those who speak Latin in their households...I used to go to a spoken Latin convention in Kentucky, run by the people that put the Dr Seuss books in Latin--and there was this little girl, about 4 years old, who would come. Her mother had taught her Latin and English simultaneously, and I swear to God she could speak it better than us. Pretty sad notion.

But I think it's good that the Catholic Church is trying to revitalize it.
