How to Learn Esperanto

Over the past few days I’ve started learning more Esperanto again. Every day, I read some Esperanto, watch some videos, and/or listen to podcasts. Now that my phone has updated to Anki 2, I will get back to memorizing more vocabulary.

I’d like to see where another month gets me with the language. I can read Esperanto, but still need work on listening comprehension, speaking, and writing.

I’ll catch up on the Forum early next week… Read more

2011 Lernu Meetup in Slovakia

I’m really behind on my plan to learn Esperanto. My work just takes up too much time. (A problem that I’m trying to fix at the moment.)

La verda stelo


The positive side of not having seriously worked on Esperanto for more than a few days means I can test myself. I have until July 30th to memorize vocabulary and grammar. Then one week of immersion and classes at the Lernu Meeting in Slovakia. I’ll see where I am by that point. Read more
