Love That Lingua Franca – a common third language

I highly recommend you have a read of National Geographic Traveler Contributing editor Daisann McLane‘s Sept 2011 article, “Love That Lingua Franca“. I had fun and also learned something unexpected at the same time.

    I thought this article would be about Esperanto – a language which functions well as a lingua franca.

    Thanks for sharing Bill. Interesting to read about Esperanto.

    Thinking more about it, I like Daisann’s proposal more because the third languages are someone else first language, but not the two or more speakers. :)
