No. It has some fanatically evangelical promoters but is of very limited use in practice.

The only way you can determine for yourself if something is worth learning is to learn it and see.

That depends. If you're interested in it and want to go to Esperanto meetings, then yes. If not, then no.

All I can give you is my opinion :). Esperanto has personally been very valuable to me as only an English speaker. I wanted an auxiliary language to be able to communicate on a foreign level and the more I learned about Esperanto the more I enjoyed what I saw. Learning the language was smooth and relatively easy. After a couple of weeks I feel I can communicate in the language at a level which is new yes but I can still convey the essence of what I mean which is so exciting. It's worth at least a look right? =) It has its own rich culture.

I have never met anyone who wanted to communicate with me in Esperanto.

I'd only learn Esperanto if a love interest wanted to learn it to satisfy their linguistic exploration. I'm a hyper polyglot with 14 languages under my belt over the past 10 years. People have suggested Esperanto to me, but I cant use it anywhere therefor I don't want to learn it.

If you're into criminal activities then I'd recommend you and your criminal buddies learn Esperanto. No one will know what you're talking about and maybe people wouldn't be able to easily translate it. LOL!

There's a lot of good (albeit partially subjective) reasons to learn Esperanto, as already mentioned in other comments, but honestly any language is lerninda - worth learning in esperanto ;) - if you are truly interested in it.

Like learning anything else, it depends on your reasons for wanting to learn it. Do you find yourself drawn to it? Then yes. Do you have an interest in linguistics, in general? Maybe. Are you looking for a language that will help you at work? Probably not.

Really, I think it's up to personal preference. I'd only learn Esperanto (or any language) if I'd have to use it in my work environment.

Learning a language just for work environment is too boring =/. I really think it is cool to have something useful in your career, but languages are much more than this.
