@peacecrusader888,
As we say here in the United State.

If English was good enough for Jesus, it is good enough for me.

(Even in Genesis it says that if we all speak English, we can build a great big tower.)

@peacecrusader888,
Romania speaks Romanian, Serbia speaks Serbian, Montenegro speaks Montenegrin (which is very similar to Serbian, Croation, Bosnian, Slovenian...and maybe Macedonian (not certain). Huey Lewis and the News wants a new drug.

@InfraBlue,
Thank you.
I was wondering if I was the only one who didn't know what he was talking about.

@roger,
I know a few Serbians, even they had never heard about it.

It would be interesting to know why Romania wants to get a new language, especially since Romanian is a Romance language - do they want to get a new country name as well?

@Walter Hinteler,
They should go with Esperanto. As Beth once said, I already speak it like a native.

She forgot to mention that there are no natives of Esperanto.

@roger,
If we are going to pick a random made up language, I would choose Klingon. There are a number of fluent speakers (maybe more than Esperanto).

@maxdancona,
Native Esperanto speakers estimate between 1,000 to several thousand, fluent speakers from 63,000 to two million according to what source you believe.

There had actually been an "Esperanto country": Neutral Moresnet, a small Belgian–Prussian condominium Europe that existed from 1816 to 1920 and was jointly administered by the United Kingdom of the Netherlands (Belgium after its independence in 1830) and the Kingdom of Prussia.
Esperanto was the official language from 1908 onward

I'm pretty sure the Romanian people are not interested in a new language or a new name for the country.

@Walter Hinteler,
They want to go a little more exotic, a little more Uto-Aztecan.

Klingon is an option.

The countries that I cited would like to add to the confusion of languages spoken in Europe like France (French), Germany (German), Spain (Spanish), Greece (Greek), etc. I guess, in the future, English will be used as medium of instruction, and Pilipino, the language used by the spirit of Ama, the lingua franca of the Christian world.
