Esperanto is a planned or constructed language that was invented during the period, 1877-1885. It was invented by a Polish doctor called L.L. Zamenhof. The language was intended for use between people who speak different native languages like French, English, German, Russian, etc. Zamenhof felt that a common language would resolve problems that caused conflict among human beings. The alphabet does not have the letter ‘q’ in it. Esperanto, which means ‘a person who is hoping’, was the pseudonym he adopted when writing his first book.
