Stephen will be appearing in the Irish TV show, Ros na Rún, as part of his new series and I for one cannot wait to see it!

It will be weird but brilliant to hear him speaking as Gaeilge.

Go n'éirí an t-ádh leat Stephen!

(Good luck)

I really can't wait to see this, I was delighted when I heard Stephen would be making an appearance on the show. His enthusiasm for the language is something to be greatly admired. It makes me think that I should make more of an effort with the cúpla focal.

I hope that Stephen Fry will mention the success of Esperanto in his new BBC TV programme when it airs on 25th September. Many ignorant people describe Esperanto as "failed" - other ignorant people say that if human beings were meant to fly, God would have given them wings.

Esperanto is neither artificial nor a failure however. As the British Government now employs Esperanto translators it has ceased to be a hobby. More recently this international language was used to address the United Nations in Bonn.

During a short period of 124 years Esperanto is now in the top 100 languages, out of 6,800 worldwide. It is the 22nd most used language in Wikipedia, ahead of Danish and Arabic. It is a language choice of Google, Skype, Firefox, Ubuntu and Facebook.

The new online course http://www.lernu.net has 125 000 hits per day and Esperanto Wikipedia enjoys 400 000 hits per day. That can't be bad
