Reader feedback: Make Esperanto an option

Re: English a neocolonial tool, Reader feedback, May 31 - June 6, Vol 10, No 21

I don't think that anyone should take action to force anyone to study Esperanto. Any actions taken should convince or motivate people, not force them. Certainly, Esperanto should be taught in schools at all levels of education, at least as an option.

People should be informed about language problems; their real costs - not only in money - and the fact that English has not solved them. People should be informed about the relative facility and fun of learning Esperanto.
