COBOL turns 60 this year. Commodore Grace Hopper invented it in the Navy. It is used for accounting and financial data. It has been ported to many different computer platforms.
GNU/COBOL is one of those versions of COBOL ported to Windows, Linux and Mac at https://sourceforge.net/projects/open-cobol/

COBOL is no longer taught in schools and colleges, it was when I went in the 1980s and 1990s. I learned COBOL I and COBOL II.
It is older than me, and will outlast me.
