Laddering: Spanish course in Esperanto?

So, I recently heard of a technique for learning several languages called "Laddering". The basis of it is that you use your native language to learn another language, and then use THAT language to learn your next one. In my case, with Esperanto and Spanish, that would mean instead of memorizing that both "mujer" and "virino" mean "woman", I would memorize that "virino" means "woman" and that "mujer" means "virino".

In order to do this, though, I need to either find a Spanish course in Esperanto or learn Esperanto from Spanish here on Duolingo, which I don't think is possible. Any suggestions?

Or you could do the "all in one" method, in which "virino means woman means mujer means Frau means femme means donna means kvinde means mulher" etc.

;D

But I get your point

Sadly, courses aren't made automatically, and it requires time and dedication of the contributors for one course to be made... so we have to wait! Plus, the Esperanto course for English speakers is not in phase 3 yet, so additional courses can't be made from the existing one until it graduates.

And no one can make an "Anything-for-Esperanto-speakers" until the same criteria is met, I presume? A lot of the people here seem to believe that I want to use Spanish to learn Esperanto...that's not the case. My plan is to use the "Esperanto for English Speakers" here on Duolingo, and find a "Spanish for Esperanto Speakers" somewhere else. It's a tall order, I know...

Spanish for Esperanto speakers is even more unlikely to happen than Esperanto for Spanish speakers...

I think your project won't be able to be made ;(

Sorry, that is not yet available. Someone could learn English from Spanish and then learn Esperanto from English. I am sorry. Perhaps in the future? Esperanto is one of the new languages. You could learn French or Portuguese from English and then learn Spanish from one of those or vice versa: you could learn Spanish and then there are quite a few languages that you can learn from Spanish.

Thank you, but that's not the information I was looking for. I wanted to know if anyone knew of such a course OUTSIDE of Duolingo. I've heard of the Esperanto from English course of Lernu!, but is the situation there the same as here? I don't want to make an account there unless I'm sure.

Sorry if the all-caps comes across as rude. I've yet to figure out how to make text italic.

You can do Esperanto courses on Lernu in Spanish. You just need to set the language to Spanish.

I did exactly what you are proposing. My native language is German and I learned Esperanto via the Duolingo course in English. I wouldn't recommend it though, if you haven't yet achieved a high level in the first language. Otherwise it's really nice. I still learn some new things about English while I am learning Esperanto, especially the correct spelling of some words. Maybe, you could just continue learning Spanish and start learning Esperanto, when the Spanish-to-Esperanto course goes online. Or you could start the English-to-Esperanto course and switch over as soon as the other course is available. This shouldn't be a problem, if you use the "Test out of..." feature. I believe, there will never be an Esperanto-to-Spanish course. Which would be really cool, by the way :) .

Never is such a long time. Hopefully we'll have Spanish for Esperanto speakers in 2025...

Amuzulo estoy leyendo la página enviada para aprender Esperanto es muy buena. Bueno haber si logramos superar su pronostico. Todo depende también de los programadores de Duolingo. Para empezar poco a poco. Me esta constando aprender Esperanto pero sigo adelante.

It would be. That's the curse of it, though. Esperanto is supposed to make other languages easier, and it does, but you get confused. Especially in Spanish: I can't count how many times I've said "es" instead of "estas" or "que" instead of "kio". XD
