I think Alex is right; in theory, language clubs would be a great way for people to talk and learn languages and done right, it could really be something special. With made up languages like Esperanto or Klingon, they do have their own culture attached and the clubs could evolve beyond the language itself into other aspects of the fictional worlds from which they originate.

But truth be told, I don't think it will generate enough interest. I don't think there'd be enough interest in made up languages like Klingon Esperanto on a forum like PokeCommunity for it to be viable . If I'm honest, I think the only language club that people would keep alive would be a Japanese club... because everybody seems to be interested in all sorts of anime shows and other aspects of Japanese culture (which makes sense, given that it's a forum based on Pokemon, which is Japanese).
