I always say somewhat slowly, "Esperanto estas tre bela internacia lingvo."

Then the person is surprised to mostly understand it, plus you just got them to say "very beautiful international language". :-D

  • What do you think it means?
  • "Esperanto is a very beautiful international language."
  • You just said it!

That's manipulation. I like it.

Well actually I say "io", then "it means 'something'", and then I ask them to tell me a sentence and I translate it afterwards.

Bone vere mi diras "io" kaj do "gxi signifas 'ion'", poste mi demandas ilin "diru min frazon" kaj mi tradukas gxin.

A friend of my mother asked me to say something in French. I said something and she said "ooh that sounds so romantic it sends chills up my spine!" She asked me to say it again, and I did. Then she asked "What does that mean?" I answered, "take out the garbage"
