Because nobody speaks it (as a native language or in daily life).

Because nobody speaks it actively. It's mostly used for terms in the hospital and other occupations.

Some do speak it actively. For instance, and #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, and plenty more (click on the little black triangle underneath JAKSOT).

Latin is still actively spoken by a select group of people, and of all the ancient languages it is arguably the best known. However, there are no native speakers of Latin - not anymore, at least. You cannot spend some time in a Latin speaking country to learn the language, because there aren't any.
