Esperanto Despair

Imagine my despair,
on emerging from four-year,
self-imposed exile
to find the language
I had mastered
was now obsolete!

    You're obviously being sardonic, as Esperanto never caught on anywhere. (Report) Reply

    Is there any Esperanto left, spoken and written anywhere? If not, what a shame.
    And your surprise would be a shock
