I have always found Greeks to be a friendly bunch of people who given the chance will argue/talk the hind legs off a donkey but I wasn't aware that Ancient Greek was especially popular or studied in those communities.

Certainly the Greek friends that I have who were born in Greece do not have any fluency or (sadly) any interest in it. Having said that, I haven't gone out of my way to learn Anglo-Saxon either so I cannot be too much of a hypocrite there...
