English is the most commonly studied language in the world today. There are about 1000 million people who speak English as a second language and about 400 million who speak it as a first language. Both Mandarin Chinese and Spanish have more native speakers but not as many learn them as a second language. French is the second most commonly studied language in the world. French is the first language of about 100 million. We think that 100 million speakers might be enough to give Esperanto a critical mass.

Do you think that if 100 million people learned Esperanto it could become a major world language?

Yes No Not sure
