Any news on a future Esperanto update? I love the language however the course seems minimalistic compared to many of the others.
It has as much content as other courses, because we've put more lessons in the skills than other courses. In Tree 2.0, which we're currently working on, we will be splitting many of these skills into separate skills, so it will be easier to progress through the tree. I'm guessing we'll have the next version of the course available around May, but I can't give any promises. We all work on it when we have time... here are our tasks:
- working on reports
- skill structure for Tree 2.0
- adding new sentences to Tree 2.0
- public relations (articles, interviews, etc)
- reviewing future contributor candidates
- maintaining and growing the community
- correcting/adding Tips & Notes
We have a lot of stuff that needs done, but we're doing the best we can! I hope this helps give a perspective on where we are. If you have any more specific questions, I'll be happy to answer them!
A few weeks ago, there was an update on the incubator saying that a 2.0 version of the tree is being worked on, so I assume in a couple of months there will be a larger tree. On the other hand, given that the esperanto course has less grammar (far fewer verb conjugations), there's much fewer "words" that it needs to teach for the same "level."
Anyway, I wonder if the language level reached in the shorter esperanto tree is the same, lower, or higher as on some of the larger trees such as French or Spanish (some of the larger trees already had one or two updates it seems, so they are ahead in the game).
