A good list, I would add the courses on memrise too, I'm dyslexic and so find them to be very helpful in remembering the differences between words, it's also a good way to widen your vocabulary.

September 3, 2015

Hmm, my impression is that Memrise is great for beginners, but not so great for intermediate and advanced learners. I'm open to other opinions though...

September 3, 2015

Memrise helped me get the correlatives and affixes down cold after completing duolingo

October 18, 2017

But actually, having this link in the top comment already means it's included in a way. :)

September 4, 2015

Memrise is covered in the "So many Ways to Learn Esperanto" link above. There is no way we can list all possible resources separately in this post.

September 3, 2015

Lasu Min Paroli Plu:

The above is meant to be read alongside Gerda Malaperis. Claude Piron wrote each chapter using the same vocabulary roots as the corresponding chapters in Gerda. It is a french website, but the Esperanto intro is underneath and there is a link for each chapter at the bottom.

September 3, 2015

I'm reading Gerda Malaperis and the story in that link, and I'm a little confused how it fits together. Is it something you just figure out as you get far enough, or am I missing something? ;)

January 19, 2016

lil.boxer just said that the vocabulary is the same, not the story :)

So if you know enough words to read (say) chapter 5 of Gerda Malaperis, you can understand chapter 5 of Lasu min paroli plu as well since it doesn't use any words that you haven't learned yet.

January 19, 2016

Ohh, dankon!

January 19, 2016

Estas la ligilo al Muzaiko erara? Cxu devus esti


September 4, 2015

Ha jes, mi ĵus korektis ĝin. Dankon!!

September 7, 2015

Tre bona artikolo, amuzulo.

Mi aldonus al la sekcio "Audio" la retejon Esperanta Retradio. Ĝi estas tre bona podkasto.

September 4, 2015

Aldonite! :)

September 4, 2015

I should add Esperanto Literature Archive and four magazines that are likely known, but not directly mentioned:

December 11, 2016

"La Ondo de Esperanto" nun grandparte estas legebla en la formo de sia paĝaro — mi kore konsilas, estas bona Esperanta ĵurnalismo.

June 15, 2017

V. ... Prave!

June 17, 2017

Aria, Kvankam ricevas mi "Usonan E--iston", "LOdE", ( k havas mi ion de memorata de mi Don Harlow), la tutaĵon, rekomenditan de vi, en miaj "plej ŝatataj" nun situas! ....Dankas mi vin! ---Keneĉjo

April 17, 2017

I'm amused to note that when I look at this list taking the organizations out of the equation, when I started learning Esperanto in 2001, only a fraction of these resources existed. In fact, 10 of them existed and 24 has been created within the past 15 years. It's amazing seeing the community grow so much!! Who knows what we'll see in the next 15 years?!

September 21, 2015

mi kredas ke vi aspektas kiel "amuzulo"

Pardonon, angla sxerco

June 10, 2016


June 10, 2016

amuzulo = fun guy = funghi

June 10, 2016

hahahaha, brile! :)

June 10, 2016

Kial ne mencii "Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo" videon kurson? YouTube havas la tutan serion. (

February 8, 2017

Stecxjo, mojose! ---Keneĉjo

February 8, 2017


February 8, 2017

I would add resources from here (eg corpus)

And for Continue reading: Paŝoj al Plena Posedo rete pdfe

I personally didn't like Fajron sentas mi interne... Strange story :/

For books you could add

And as place to practice on fb

September 4, 2015

Lots of great recommendations on this list. I would add that an in-person course, such as NASK (the Nord-Amerika Somera Kursaro de Esperanto), will really help one advance their language skills.

September 5, 2015

And for Europeans (or those who can travel there easily), SES (Somera Esperanto-Studado) in Slovakia. (And sometimes in other countries, too! There was at least one in Russia.)

No SES 2016 due to the Esperanto World Congress taking part in Slovakia that year, but otherwise it's been going every year for seven years or so.

December 2, 2015

Can you make this a sticky?

September 6, 2015

No, but it's already linked from the Esperanto mega post, so you can always find it. Plus, there's a link in the Tips & Notes of the last skill. :)

September 6, 2015

Nepre menciindas, ke oni povas peti numeron de la revuo Kontakto de TEJO !

November 4, 2015

Saluton, Ankaŭ mi finiĝis la arbon de Esperanto, eĉ se mi ne bone parolas la anglan. Mi ja scias, ke multaj francoj - kiel mi - uzas la anglan por esperantiĝi. Ĉu vi povus aldoni kelkajn ligilojn por francaj retejoj : ekzemple. Dankon Ĵeromo

January 30, 2016

Se vi volas informiĝi pri la internacia novaĵo, vi povas ankaŭ legi Le Monde Diplomatique en Esperanto.

March 14, 2017

eric, Dankon!! "Le monde diplomatique" en E--o, dank' al vi, nun restas en miaj 'plej ŝatataj. :)

March 15, 2017

eric, Mi aldonu, por parolantoj de la angla : "Being Colloquial in Esperanto", senpage elŝutebla ...<>

March 15, 2017

Do individual users have a time limit after their completion of the Duolingo course for the magazine offer, or will it end for everyone at the same time? I will wait for an answer before I finish the last skill.

May 22, 2019

Are you talking about the Kontakto offer? The link is still active, but I have no idea whether they're really still doing it. The link doesn't seem to indicate any time limit other than the fact that they could stop offering it .. for everybody.

Why wait?

June 3, 2019

I would like to know if anyone has done it recently to know if it still exists. I guess I'll do the last lesson of the Esperanto course soon...

July 30, 2019

I applied and just over 3 weeks later, I still haven't received magazines. I emailed them about it a few days ago and I haven't gotten a response. I wonder if there's some problem.

Edit: I've emailed UEA again, to a different email address. Let's see what happens now.

Yeay? Wouldn’t it be Jeaj?

For links to thousands of books and magazines, from the most elemental to all kind of books, including scientific and technical books. Also thousands of podcasts with text, the classical videos "Mazi en Gondoland" and "Esperanto, Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo", and much more, please see this web page: (still adding links) (in Spanish: Enrique

Great post!

Tales, Saluton al vi ! :) ---Keneĉjo

January 27, 2018

I've just finished the Esperanto tree.

February 22, 2018

Mi ĵus finis la esperantan arbon kaj povas diri ke mi ŝategis ĝin.

February 23, 2018

I thought I had replied, but apparently not. You could add the language exchange apps. Speaky and Hellotalk (and maybe others too, you can check Busuu and iTalki) have a few fluent esperanto speakers looking for beginners to talk to.

May 8, 2019

For those who know Habitica (a gamified productivity app, and the only productivity app that works for me), we have made an Esperanto team there! It's called La Verda Flago, tell me if you want to join so I can add you :)

(also, the link has stopped working)

June 14, 2019

Pistacchios, Kvankam ni esperantistoj ne havas landon, "flago" estas ja uzata. Proponas mi, ke vi uzu la "ĝustan" terminon "standardo". Mi iel aŭdas "La Standardo Verda"

June 14, 2019

For those who just have to have an E-book, there is: Karlo: An Easy Reader for Students of Esperanto. It sells for 99 cents for amazon Kindle, and Pasporto Esperanta: An Esperanto-English Dictionary $2.99 for Kindle.

The ¨Easy¨ reader in a challenge for those of us with only Duo experience as it seems 30% of the words in the elementary reader were never covered in the Duo course. This is causing me to constantly resort to the dictionary. It is a short book, graded from ¨easy¨ to progressively less easy, but for $0.99, it's a deal. Especially for me as my constant dictionary cross-referencing makes it seem longer.

One needs a Kindle Paperwhite to do it well as Greg Hullender explains:

I can verify the the direct foreign language look-up that Greg describes works well with the Esperanto Dictionary too

September 4, 2015

For those not using a Kindle, "Karlo" is also available as an epub from Project Gutenberg:

There are also some other Esperanto books available:

September 5, 2015

Indeed, Karlo is the book I'm reading right now; there doesn't seem to be much of a selection available though; I'm trying to find books on the internet. Besides Gutenberg, there is also: that I can convert to .mobi files.

September 5, 2015

The same site that has the back issues of Juna Amiko available also has a collection of links which should fill out your reading queue nicely: ... see the section "Interesaj legaĵoj"

September 6, 2015

I am reading Claude Piron's "Vere aŭ Fantazie": which is also an 'incremental' book (the vocabulary is added step by step), in a similar way to "Lasu min paroli plu".

September 6, 2015

The link I posted above to the site also has a link to Claude Piron's detective stories which you might enjoy.

September 6, 2015

Vi forgesis - la plej granda (mi pensas) socia-retejo de Esperanto!

Dankon por la listo!

La ligilo pri "Being Colloquial in Esperanto - Esperanto grammar for intermediate students" ne funkcias.

November 1, 2015

I always just google it when I need it.

February 26, 2017

February 26, 2017

La ligolo por "Being colloquial in Esperanto" ne funkcias. Uzu ĉi tiun ligolon, esperas, ke la ligolo estas prava. Pardonu min se mia Esperanto estas malbona!

November 14, 2015

Some of these websites could use a revamp...still look like they're from Zamenhof's day

June 10, 2016

You may also mention There are quite a lot of people who like to become friend with you, need help or just want to correspond with you.

August 18, 2016

esocom, mi vekiĝis, mi kontrolis la retpoŝton. Kaj jen via sunradia kuraĝigo! Alklakis mi . Tuj mi aldonis ĝin al miaj "plej ŝatataj"! [ĝi aspektas al mi tre ampleksa] Ja mi ĝojas, ke vi, esocom, estas esperantisto! ---Keneĉjo Goldbergo

Maybe "Continue learning" could be divided in subsections, e. g.:

  • Learn to listen and speak (dialogue): Skype

  • Learn to listen (and see videos): Pasporto al la tuta mondo (+ Mazi, Ana Pana)

  • Learn to read and write: Lernu!, Being Colloquial, Vojaĝo en Esperanto-lando

  • Learn to read: Gerda malaperis

  • Multiple options: So Many Ways...

It seems that Ekparolu! is far from being usable now - so maybe it should be eliminated until it's ready. The list shouldn't create hopes that are not fulfilled. Maybe there are other possibilities to find partners to speak. They should be indicated (see ) How about HelloTalk, Speaky, italki ?

November 2, 2016

Thanks for the suggestions. We'll consider doing this.

November 2, 2016

Lu, Dankon!---en miajn "plej ŝatatojn"!

November 2, 2016

I've just updated the page as you recommended. Thanks for the suggestions!!

October 30, 2017

How long will the magazine offer last? This post is a year old and it's still going today.

December 31, 2016

I think the offer is still valid. I know it worked in September.

December 31, 2016

ElectricSk, Mi ja kredas, ke jes! ---Keneĉjo

December 31, 2016

I understand there is a second Esperanto "tree" coming up. How is that progressing?

April 16, 2017

Are there threads like this for other languages, like German?

September 3, 2015

Any idea how many people have completed the tree? Or, e.g., are at least x level?

September 4, 2015

As of a month ago, 300 people had finished the tree. I don't have current stats.

September 5, 2015


September 7, 2015

I can recommend registering to! It's nice to make that step into really conversing in Esperanto with other people.

September 17, 2015

Wow thank you for this. I'm not finished my tree yet but once I do I will start using these resources. Dankon :)

December 16, 2015

Estis amuze lerni Esperanton per Duolingo.

December 27, 2015

lerni en proksimume 22 tagoj, kaj relerni por cxiam. Versxajne, ekzistus "immersion" por esperanto. (correct me if i'm wrong)

learning in approx. 22 days, and relearn forever. probably, there should be "immersion" for esperanto

January 17, 2016

"Immersion" for Esperanto: A few intensive courses like NASK: , , at William Peace University, Raleigh, North Carolina, June 28 to July 7, 2016. Any "Esperanto-renkontiĝo", many sites around the world. Some of them are on a 2 or 3-day weekend. The World Esperanto Convention and some National Conventions go on for a whole week: (scroll down the page) Thousands of ways to practice and use Esperanto:

January 17, 2016

Unfortunately, there is no immersion for Esperanto, and none is planned. Duolingo's business model has changed, and immersion (translation of texts from the target language to English) is no longer their focus.

January 17, 2016

Hi Ruth! 4 days ago, davidvdb found out a hack that actually makes immersion for Esperanto possible. Have a look at this.

January 24, 2016

Thank you! Yes, I am aware of it. We added the info to the Esperanto Mega Post in the Discussion forum, and also posted about it in the Duolingo Esperanto Learners Facebook Group.

January 24, 2016

Ruth, could you please edit your comment above? there is no immersion for Esperanto, and none is planned -> there is immersion for Esperanto. Maybe with a link to the instruction how to do it.

March 26, 2016

Or change it to "there is officially no immersion for Esperanto, and none is planned".

March 26, 2016

if so, will there be new materials (since it's still beta)?

January 18, 2016

Could you sticky this discussion? That would be great! Or we could add them to the Unofficial Duolingo wiki page for external resources.

March 15, 2016

This discussion is part of the "Esperanto Mega Post" which is a sticky post.

March 15, 2016

Right! Never mind then.

March 15, 2016

The „Being Colloquial“ link gives 404 error, check it, please.

June 3, 2016

Vinilkosmo MP3 is blocked by OpenDNS: "This domain is blocked due to a security threat."

Any idea why?

June 3, 2016

Esperanto is a fun and interesting language to learn on Duolingo. If you are interested in learning that language, I would definitely recommend using Duolingo. I encourage you to give it a try, you're gonna love it as much I do. Thank goodness for Duolingo and its creator, whoever he or she is.

June 23, 2016


September 6, 2016
