Introduction[edit | edit source]
Esperanto is a constructed language that was published in 1887 by L. L. Zamenhof with the intention for it to become the language of international communication. Although it has not yet achieved this ambitious goal, Esperanto is by far the most successful constructed language. It is much easier to learn than any typical natural language and learning it has a positive effect on learning more languages. This course aims to take the learner from the basics through all the intricacies of the language.
