Sir: It is an absurd daydream to hope that the world will accept English as the international language (letter, 15 October).

Even within Europe there is occasional chaos. At one European Union meeting, a French speaker said that to find a solution they needed "la sagesse normande". This was translated as: "We need Norman Wisdom."

Esperanto is a proved, practical and simple solution.
