What is Esperanto?   To learn Esperanto
Esperanto is a language, a planned language.

Esperanto is the easiest language to learn, because it was planned to be easy.
Esperanto was published on July 26, 1887. It is 130 years old, as of April 2018.

There are two main uses for Esperanto.   Unintended use:
It is a logical language with few rules and no exceptions. Learning it offers a good base to learn other languages. It helps to understand grammar, and it is learned in a short time compared with other languages. It should be the first language to learn, to save time when learning other languages.

Main use:   Esperanto is a language to be used the same way as other languages, plus a few other advantages.

Most languages are useful in one or several countries or regions. Esperanto is used in most countries. People that learned Esperanto, did so, to contact people from other languages, other cultures, other countries. They want to contact you. Some of them would offer their houses to you for a visit, or for a short stay.   I have already spoken in Esperanto in   26 countries.

    20 Reasons to learn and use Esperanto.

To learn any language:

No matter which is the language, all 4-year-young children around the world, are fluent with a reduced vocabulary, and without knowing the meaning of the word "grammar". After fluency they keep adding new words. For Esperanto, 500 word-roots are enough for fluency.
