Esperanto Flag Jes, Esperanto. - No, the easy to learn international auxiliary language is not dead. An estimated 1-2 million people speak it world-wide according to the World Almanac and Book of Facts. Seven past Nobel Prize winners were Esperantists, the most recent in 1994. UNESCO and other organizations of the UN system issued several official resolutions favouring Esperanto. Have you heard of Umberto Eco, the famous writer? He's another supporter of Esperanto.
