Esperanto-USA Retbutiko


Learning - Beginner

Books are the traditional resource for learning languages. Every esperantist who wants to really master the language has to learn the grammar and syntax from well-written textbooks. See the items below.

CDs and DVDs will allow you to hear the language and learn to pronounce it correctly. They also allow you to easily learn whole phrases by heart, which will be very useful in ordinary conversation. See the items below.

The most popular Internet website for learning Esperanto is lernu.net. There are many courses for beginners there, so hopefully you can find one that appeals to you. The Instant Messaging Service can be useful for trying out your Esperanto with other beginners.

  • can ask and answer questions on very familiar topics; within the scope of very limited language experience
  • can understand simple questions and statements, allowing for slowed speech, repetition or paraphrase
  • has a speaking vocabulary which is inadequate to express anything but the most elementary needs; makes frequent errors in pronunciation and grammar, but can be understood by a native speaker used to dealing with foreigners attempting to speak the language
  • should be able to order a simple meal, ask for shelter or lodging, ask and give simple directions, make purchases, and tell time
