Welcome to the Esperanto Department at Wikiversity, part of the Center for Foreign Language Learning and the School of Language and Literature.

Introduction[edit]

Esperanto is a constructed language that was published in 1887 by Ludoviko Lazaro Zamenhof with the intention for it to become the language of international communication. Although it has fallen short of this ambitious goal, Esperanto is by far the most successful constructed language. Esperanto is much easier to learn than any typical natural language and learning it has a positive effect on learning more languages.
