LET US build on the successes of Esperanto. I have used it in Amsterdam, Prague, Helsinki and Reykjavik and have had contacts with Esperantists of many other countries including China and Japan.

Syntactically, it is easier than English, and entirely phonetic. Your original article joked about Greeks and Estonians being the last to laugh because of re-translation problems. Greek and Estonian Esperantists laugh with the rest of us!
