I had a question about chaining infinitives. If I wanted to say "Do you want to try to learn esperanto," could I say "Ĉu vi volas provi lerni esperanton?"

And I've got a good way to remember that, too. It seems to have the same root as "prove", as in "proving ground", which is where things are tested, which is to say tried out.
