Wikipedia Wednesday - Esperanto
Ĉu vi parolas Esperanton?…. translation: Do you speak Esperanto?
Esperanto is the most spoken constructed language in the world. The language was created in the late 1800s by Ludwig Lazarus Zamenhof. Zamenhof’s ultimate goal was to create a language that brought people together to foster peace. The language hasn’t reached universal acceptance yet but a few schools use a modified version of it to help students learn other languages.
