DuoLingo Esperanto Book

Hello, fellow language learners! :)

I am working my way through the Esperanto tree and I thought it would be helpful to share what I've been working on: a compiled "book" of all of the lessons (including vocabulary and example sentences) and helpful comments!

I have decided to make the "book" in parts, and release each part here as I finish it. The number of parts will correspond to the "checkpoints" in the DuoLingo Tree (except for Parts 3, 4, 5, and 6 which correspond to one big bunch of lessons before a checkpoint in the tree):

  • Part 1: Basics through Plurals (download here)
  • Part 2: Da/De through Infinitive (download here)
  • Part 3: Questions through Numbers
  • Part 4: Dates/Time through Cond. Verb
  • Part 5: Adverbs through Affixes 2
  • Part 6: Expression through Concepts

Note: Any small edits (e.g. accent marks, spaces, etc.) will be made in the final compiled book of all six parts (which I will make once all six parts are complete). Larger changes (e.g. grammar) can be made as soon as they are pointed out. If you see any changes that need to be made, please feel free to let me know! :)

Updates:

  • 2/10/16: Part 1 is complete!
  • 2/13/16: Made some edits to Part 1 and re-uploaded it! Almost finished with Part 2 (three topics to go!).
  • 2/17/16: Part 2 is complete! This marks how much I have gotten through in the Esperanto tree thus far. I will start working on Part 3 soon!

That's an extremely well made book, very professional looking and super helpful! Now I don't have to open up skills every time to be able to read the notes. Thank you so much for creating and sharing it with us!

As others have said--beautiful job. Do I understand correctly that you're planning to compile all the parts into one file when you're finished? In any case, thanks for all your work!

Thank you! :) Yes, you are correct! I will share the full compiled project once all six parts are finished. :)

Great work creambun. However the 'files don't exist...' in the links (I missed the opportunity).

Have you progressed after part2?
