1. Learning vocabulary:
  (To top)
Some students mention different approaches to learning long lists of words. Knowing the words is not enough to use a language. You need to know how to use those words.

Following a basic course is the fastest way to learn the basic vocabulary, with better retention. After finishing a course, try to read easy-readers, written specially for beginners with reduced vocabulary. You can get fluency in Esperanto knowing just 500 words. Then go on learning more words by reading more, with the help of a dictionary or vocabulary. But do not stop every time you find a word you don't know. Write it down, and when you have five or ten words, search some of them in the dictionary.

2. The Zagreb Method:   (To top)     A simple course to learn and practice Esperanto, teaching about 450 words.   Remember that all 4-year-young children around the world are fluent with a small vocabulary, no matter which language they speak.

About the sound: Some of the readings (or songs) can be read while listening. When using a browser not made by Microsoft, this icon appears on top of each reading. Otherwise, find the links at the end of the page.

Start learning with the  Zagreb Method.
After a few lessons try  these readings  as practice or as a test. Listen while your read. Read aloud. Read from the beginning as far as possible, without using a dictionary. When you don't understand several words, stop, go back to the course and study a few more lessons. Then repeat this sequence. Keep going until you finish the course and understand all the readings.

If you think that you need a dictionary, try the following vocabularies, but don't learn the words from the vocabulary. It is faster and better to learn from the course. The course teaches the 450 more frequent words.
