A better question would be "If you spoke Latin, whenwould you live?" Latin is considered a dead language because it is not spoken anywhere today, at least as a common language. It is still used for official correspondence in the Roman Catholic Church; it is used in legal phraseology and in medical terminology as well. Latin was spoken by Romans and evolved into the romance languages.

There is a limited number of opportunities for exercising your conversational Latin, but one is the Conventiculum Latinumheld annually at the University of Kentucky. This is a week-long summer workshop for participants who have a "reasonably secure" grasp of Latin syntax and want to improve their proficiency by interacting in an all-Latin environment.

How do you say why speak Latin in Latin?

cur dice latina EDIT: That is not a grammatical translation at all :) Without more input, there are a few ways to take the questions you asked: Why should (I) speak Latin Why should (we) speak Latin Why should (you) speak Latin Why should (y'all) speak Latin Why should (he/she/it) speak Latin Why should (they) speak Latin In English and Latin you can leave out a nominative, but in Latin any regular verb needs to have a person. In any of these situations, you would still begin: Cur dicam/dicas/dicat/dicamus/dicatis/dicant "Why should [subj] speak", using the subjunctive to convey the "should" aspect. The second part is tricky as well. Do you mean "[speak] in Latin", or a more general "[speak] the Latin language"? for the first: Cur dicamus Latine? and for the second: Cur dicamus linguam Latinam? (NB I decided to use only why should we speak, as it seems to fit most contexts you might be asking this for)
