I propose that Esperanto be used as a second language in the European Union to communicate among all Europeans while respecting our mother tongues. Among the inhabitants of the European Union we have no borders, we share the same currency but we only need to share a second language such as Esperanto that is easy, and neutral (from no country). A second common language that is easier than learning that English is something that over time can produce great advances in the evolution and strengthening of the European Union and its inhabitants. Learning progress is abysmally faster than English. I think that the lingua franca should not be changed every time a new dominant power appears, as happened with French, English and maybe soon Chinese. Internationally it will continue to be so until it is decided to use a common simple language such as the one I propose for the European Union. Thanks for reading me. I hope that you, your coworkers and your families are well in these difficult times that we are suffering the whole world.
