Learning vocabulary in Esperanto is a little bit like playing with building blocks. Adding letters and syllables to words changes the type of word or creates related words. This reduces study time and is the reason many people learn Esperanto faster than other languages.
Esperanto pronunciation follows clear simple rules which make it easy to read and write. Even if you don’t understand that much of the language.
For those of you who would like to learn a few Esperanto sentences quickly, we’ve put together a small Esperanto-English phrase book.
With examples we show you how different words are derived from a base word with the help of specific syllables.
This sections includes information about cardinal numbers, ordinal numners and fractions. We also explain how to say the date and tell the time in Esperanto.
