It's not that a mix of languages is in any way *easier*. It's that
the mixed vocabulary is more balanced so the learning curve is
balanced. A Euroclone will be easier to learn than a worldlang for
someone that already speaks a European language, especially Romance
languages because of the heavy influence of Latin in the existing
Euroclones. The issue is than while Euroglots can easily learn
these languages, they are still European in structure and vocabulary
which requires a lot of effort from non-Euroglots.
