  • I cannot help thinking that it would be slightly better if each country’s competitor(s) sang in Esperanto. Take a look at http://www.esperanto.net

    Esperanto works! I’ve used it in speech and writing – and sung in it – in a dozen countries over recent years.

    The winner of 2007 – Molitva from Serbia is translated to Esperanto by a Swede living in South Korea and a Serb living in Sweden and the singer a man living in Canada

  • Amazing info inga!

    More amazing? Eight British MP’s have nominated Esperanto for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008.
