The world has become a small place over the last few decades and in order to ensure that there is an opportunity for everyone to understand everyone, there are many projects going on. One of them is Google Translate which allows you to get a translation of any text on the internet and in most cases right on the place you found it. This sounds great and one day it will be maybe, but today it is pretty bad when it comes to structures bigger that four or five words. It does not recognize grammar and since one word can mean more things, like in the Kotava language, it often gives false translations, but it is getting better, although many think it will never reach perfection.
A much better way to unite the world and make everyone understand everyone is setting a universal language, that is not national, nor known ever before. That should be a new one, with easy grammar, a rich vocabulary and logical spelling, doesn't that sound amazing? Well, there are a few of them right now and one of the best ones is the Kotava language, for sure. This universal language is special because of its universal and quite simple grammar which has no exceptions, because every rule can be used on every word, so you don't have to learn special forms that you will find in other ones.
It is good to have a constructed language, like Kotava, that is not made five or ten years ago, because in that case there were actually no opportunities to proof it and to make sure everything works well and has sense. The Kotava language was created in 1978, which gave it almost 40 years to develop, grow and make sure even http://www.camplace.com could be translated. Today we can say that it is brought up to perfection and rich in every aspect.
This language has a very logical structure, the words are pronounced as they are written and there are no rules on how to read. That is for most people the first step on knowing that it is easy and learnable, because look at Chinese and Arabian, you need to spend a year or more to first learn how to read and then start to work on the vocabulary and grammar understanding. For the creator of the Kotava language, Staren Fetcey, it was very important to have everything simple and easy and to show the world that it is possible to have a language, that can master and say even the hardest structures and emotions. It is great he shared that with the world, and many of us hope this will become globally recognized one day and that other people will start using it in order to make this planet more understandable on higher levels.
There are a few places you can learn about Kotava and take courses, this is one of the best ones, so make sure to stick around. There is no Wikipedia article in English for Kotava because it just recently got an ISO code and it is been a short amount of time since it became official.
