I guess Sambahsa (I'm tempted to write "sambāsa") isn't precisely targetted at the "language-learning impaired". But it is always hard to further two different things. What the public in Sweden knows is Esperanto and partly Interlingua. As a matter of fact contendants to Esperanto have gotten quite good press in Sweden. I even read an interesting article about Neo when it was published in the 60's in Upsala Nya Tidning, the Uppsala daily that nearly has a monopoly in this town. In 1932 Radio Sweden brought a discussion between spokespeople for Esperanto, Ido and Occidental. It started at 18.15 and ended before the late news at 22.00! (I don't remember where I read that, and I was most certainly not around, and I was not even a thought in my mother's head, I suppose!) As for myself I once tried to arrange a lecture about Interlingua here in Uppsala, but that was not much of a success. I think 3 people attended it, of which one became the editor of the Swedish Esperanto Magazine, La Espero! He already knew Esperanto at that time and he knows Interlingua as well. But I think the most important thing is, try using the language of your choice. Talking about Esperanto in my lousy English make all the other languages safe for my convincing power! :-) Amike (amik-o = friend; -o = noun -e = adverb, something like -ly in English).
