I've heard of each, have heard some of each on TV long ago, but know none of them. But I would guess that, except for Pig Latin which would be even more difficult to learn than English since it is English with added rules, Klingon and Romulan are probably much easier to learn since they would have been devised with busy actors in mind.

It's interesting to note that Ontario has reversed the prohibition on French schools but not German schools. The two founding races and all that jazz I suppose.

If it's no problem then why the stupid bill 101? Restricting someone the use of an official language sounds counter intuitive to the point your making?

To say the English have it better in Quebec than the French have it in Ontario is kind of silly because there are no police cracking down on the use of the French Language when advertising for example.

We can't presume that all French Quebecers agree with Bill 101.
Organizers of this year's St. Jean Baptiste celebrations in Montreal have issued an apology to anyone offended by the sight of black teens pushing floats carrying white people during Saturday's parade.

A video recorded at the parade and posted online shows pop singer Annie Villeneuve on a float being pushed by what appears to be only people of colour dressed in what many said looked like the rags of slaves. Surrounding the float were droves of choir members, all dressed in white.

The video has been shared more than 15,000 times as many viewers comment how the float resembled a historical depiction of slavery.
But parade organizers say that depicting slavery was never their intention.

"Certainly, the team never intended to relay a racist image," according to a French-language statement released on Monday.
