Read the following text.

Esperanto? What’s that?

A language created to facilitate communication amongst people from different countries. In practical use for
more than a hundred years, Esperanto has proved to be a genuinely living language, capable of expressing all
facets of human thought.
5 Esperanto doesn’t belong to any specific country or people. It belongs equally to everybody who speaks it,
acting as a bridge between cultures.
It’s easy! Esperanto has a simple, regular and extremely flexible structure,
and a vocabulary of international character. This makes it possible to reach
fluency much more quickly than in any other language – it’s up to ten times
10 easier to learn, according to scientific studies.

Why could it be interesting to learn Esperanto?

You can make friends all over the world, for instance, by having penpals in
distant countries and other cultures. If you like travelling, you can take along
“Pasporta Servo”, which lists speakers of Esperanto

15 in more than 70 countries. They are interested in accomodating you, free of charge and might also show you a
bit of their town or country.
Go to meetings along with other Esperanto-speakers: in your own town or country, or internationally. The
meetings such as the World Congress of Esperanto, the International Youth Congress and other international
20 youth meetings take place in different countries every year and offer a fantastic experience for the thousands of
people who participate.
Learn about other cultures through a truly international medium. Esperanto has a vast literature, both translated
and original on countless subjects, and there are also many periodicals and regular radio broadcasts in Esperanto.

How can you learn Esperanto?

25 Courses and text books exist in most countries and languages. Because Esperanto is so easy, you can also
learn it on your own or through a free postal course.
There are also several courses available on the net.
