Latin, alas, will go down in Germany due to a change in the high school system. I am the last of my family who had the chance to start with Latin as first foreign language and to learn Greek and Hebrew, too. Poor daughters of mine who hadn't the chance any more, only poor 4 years of Latin.
But in the late 19th century a lot of students enjoyed their skills in Latin and Greek translating famous German student and folk songs into these languages. I happen to own a not so small book with such translations, entitled Allemannia.
