Or better learn English/Spanish/Chinese? Does this language have relevance?

It's the most widely-spoken constructed/artificial language, but it really isn't as widely spoken as the three you mentioned. What is your native language?

In that case, I would suggest learning a language that is Slavic-based, as it would be the easiest for you. Purely on the basis of use, after Russian, Serbian is the most widely-spoken Slavic-based language.
If you want to learn a Romance language, I would go for French or Spanish.

I'd say learn Spanish. Once you're advanced in it, it opens the door to more romance languages like French, Italian, Portuguese, Catalan, Romanian and so on.

Mexican Spanish is in my opinion, the easiest to learn. Although I'm prone to making mistakes, I used to tutor in Spanish for kids who had trouble learning it in school and were better with one on one teaching. I can point you out to some resources you can try for free, to get the feel of what you're getting into.

Mi lernas esperanton.

But I do it just for fun. As a way of easing the learning of other languages

BTW, Spanish is my native language

French has a lot more dialects than Spanish, but if you're familiar with French, I recommend Spanish because for me, after 7 years of French, I can read Spanish fairly well.
Personally the easiest language I've ever learned was Swedish, but that's probably because my native language is also Germanic.

The Scandinavian languages is very beautiful and they (these languages) have logical grammar than English grammar.

I wouldn't say it's more logical, but it's kind of similar to English and that made it pretty easy to learn.

always follow your heart/gut feeling with languages. esperanto is practically useless cause it is not a "real" language, that serves as a vehicle for a conglomerate of people (nation)... but if you feel like putting your time into it go for it.

i would rather put my money on any of the other three you've mentioned doesn't matter which one.
