An EU report available on the EU web site, in several places, talks positively about a possible role for Esperanto to promote multilingualism. One of the report's key recommendations is to scientifically explore what second learned language would most efficiently encourage the learning of a third language. The recommendation directly refers to a detailed report about the British project Springboard to Languages. Of the seven examples of "best practise", which the report cites, two are based on Esperanto.
