DD's primary teaches a smattering of French and Manx, but they are v. keen on Esperanto. Personally I'd prefer they stick with the French and Manx. Can anyone sell Esperanto to me?

Does it still exist?

I always thought of it as one of those things that was introduced but never took off but am happy to stand corrected.

The only awareness I have of it is that I used to see the Esperanto office/HQ(?) when I went past it on the bus to my then boyfriends flat in Holland Park about 25yrs ago

apparently it is supposed to help with KS3 language learning and transferable skills. Also means non-specialists can teach a language which is probably the main reason.

This is quite good at explaining why...
