Has anyone ever started learning Esperanto? If you don't know about this language - it is a constructed language. The aim was to create a universal language. My grandmother was so enthused by the idea of a language that everyone could speak that she learned it. This was back in the 1950s and 60s. The problem was that only she and one friend learned it. They did use it to good effect, however, when they didn't want people to know what they were saying!
