Steps to learn and use Esperanto,
with or without the instructor's help

When you write to me, please include your name, age, sex, the name of the town and country where you live, and the languages you know or have studied, with which kind of success.

Remember that to learn to write is part of learning a language. Therefore, whenever you write, use complete sentences, the same if you write in Esperanto or in English. Try to write in Esperanto as soon as possible … it does not matter if you make mistakes, or if you have to mix some English words when you don't know the words in Esperanto. Always start each sentence with a capital letter and end it with a period.

In most of my pages, the address last letter is:   a (angla/English), e (Esperanto), h (hispana/Spanish)

All my pages have my name and the date of the last update.

On the page about videos, now you will find more than 10 hours of videos. Watch everything you can even if you don't understand. If you find it too difficult go back to the beginning of each series. Don't loose your time with dictionaries.

Animations     Pasporto, with actors from 12 countries.

Resources   to learn and use Esperanto. 
    More than 340 links.

Try to watch several times the videos to learn Esperanto,
and also listen to the reading of the book Gerda Malaperis.

Practice and check your own pronunciation.

18. Lernu.net

This it is the biggest site to learn Esperanto. Perhaps, too big, with too many possibilities. I believe that is better to finish one course before starting another. When the choice is too diverse, we have the tendency to begin many things and to finish none.

But this page is written in Portuguese.
Download the program straight from here:   PrononcoSetup.exe
and install it in your computer.

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.
