Conversation and literature. Literature is all Latin has to offer at this point.

Conversational skills allow people to experience the culture personally regardless of whether they take the time to read the great literary works of that language. However, I think you're discounting the value of native language literature too cavalierly, and not just the value of Latin literature.
