Learn Esperanto first
Tim Morely thinks that every student should learn Esperanto. In this unexpected and persuasive talk, he makes the case that this constructed language can set up a kid for a lifetime of learning languages. Previously a computer programmer, Tim Morley is now a teacher of English and French. He is pioneering an innovative programme for introducing young children to foreign language awareness using the constructed language of Esperanto.
