Description of some materials

There are some videos and sound files that help very much to learn Esperanto and they are easy to download.

Three videos based on the same subject, with a progressive vocabulary, that is, at the beginning the vocabulary is very reduced, but keeps adding new words, with some repetition to make them easier to remember.

"Gerda Malaperis" y "La Gerda Kurso"

The book "Gerda Malaperis" was also written that way. It is easy to understand the first chapter after finishing a basic course. Each following chapter adds 20 to 40 new words, for a total of 25 chapters, and near 1200 word-roots.

These 1200 roots allow you to use the language at the same level for what you would need 5000 - 10000 words in other languages.

Sound mp3

The book "Gerda Malaperis" was read by a team of Brazilian Esperantists. You can download the text and the sound.

The book "Gerda Malaperis" and "La Gerda Kurso" are in Esperanto. Only the introduction and the vocabulary are in Spanish or English.

I can correct your lessons from the course (25). You have to read the whole vocabulary for each chapter, before reading that chapter.

If you want to send me the exercises for me to correct them, you have to copy them from this page. They are more up to date than the ones in the course.

Some instructions in English, with pictures.

The instructions are also in Portuguese ... But you don't need them. On the first window, lower right, select a lesson (1 - 5)

To start, press the green little triangle on the left side of the next window. You will hear the Esperanto sentence written on the middle of the window. Then you will have a chance to repeat into your microphone what you just heard. The program will repeat first the voice of the instructor, and then your own voice, so you can compare.

There are 3 icons on the right side:
Microphone: it will repeat the process with the same sentence.
Headset: you will hear the sentence again.
Arrow: it will repeat the process with a new sentence.

To exit the program, wait for the program to stop and click the upper right "x". Clicking it when the program is trying to repeat or to record, will produce an exit with error.
