Opportunity to study Classical Latin!!!
I've got to give my full attention right now to studying Latin. Since Duo has no Latin course, it will be "Au revoir, pour un longtemps." Best wishes to all here. Nice knowing you.
If by "modern Latin" you mean unsealing the linguistic time capsule from 50 B.C.E. and inserting words for computer, car, bicycle, then I suppose you are correct as to the language variety, but I also suppose this would be of immense value in learning the language of that same 50 B.C.E.
