Need a toilet?

I know it is a toilet, but for who?

I think we need a spoken universal language as well! Unfortunately, as you point out, this cannot be English, because it is far too difficult to learn!

So which one should it be? The British learn French, the Australians study Japanese, and the Americans prefer Spanish. Why not decide on a common language, taught worldwide, in all nations?

Esperanto! I would love to learn it, but it is not yet useful!

Which are the languages with the most speakers?

Chinese (which dialect?)
English
Spanish
Hindi

Enough guessing: Here is Wikipedia's list:
