There have been over two thousand invented languages, of which only a handful are still spoken in Britain. Using interviews with speakers of Iso, Esperanto, and Volapuk, and rare archive material, Language Lessons examines the history and present state of the artificial language movement. The lessons take in Logopandecteision, Lips Kth, and the musical language, Solresol, but the medium of instruction is that most curious of hybrid languages, English.
