I hope that the "European Day of Languages" will encourage many people to learn a new language. Especially in the United Kingdom where the interest in learning language seems to be declining.

The Council of Europe already uses Esperanto to promote EDL at http://edl.ecml.at/Abouttheday/PDFs/tabid/1860/language/en-GB/language/en-GB/Default.aspx

However your readers may not know that this planned language also has great propaedeutic values. See http://www.experiencefestival.com/forum/Video-Collection/Propaedeutic%20Value%20Of%20Esperanto/Page_1

Esperanto is a living language - see http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8837438938991452670

The new online course http://www.lernu.net has 125 000 hits per day and Esperanto Wikipedia enjoys 400 000 hits per day. That can't be bad :)
