Feel free to take a poll. If the priest truly hasn't met anyone who knows how to speak, understands and can say prayers in Latin then he doesn't get out much.

Oh I think we have a fair number of Latin speakers here but I would be interested in knowing which mass they prefer. I'm decent in Latin (I can read it, Though I'm working on speaking it) but I prefer the NO go figure

I read an account from then Fr. Ratzinger on the liturgy debate at Vatican II that said this:

"The subject that preempted by far the most discussion time during the first session was, oddly enough, the debate over the language of the liturgy .. The discussion did not lack color. It was not uncommon that glowing panegyrics in favor of Latin were themselves delivered in labored pidgin Latin, while the most forceful advocates of the vernacular could express themselves in classical Latin."

I think we need to differentiate between knowing how to speak Latin fluently and learning Latin phrases to the extent needed to assist at a Latin Mass (whether TLM or NO). After a while one knows what "Agnus Dei qui tollis peccatta mundi" means without necessarily knowing the grammar, that Mundi is the genetive form "of the world" etc. If one spends enough time with a Missal that has the Latin and the vernacular on opposite pages one learns what the phrases mean.
