Lernu is the most popular forum for Esperanto learners. There are a lot of resources there. You can also try here and just scroll down to Esperanto.

There are language exchange websites out there. You'd probably find Esperanto speakers on them. Have a look at the list of language exchange sites on the Multilingual learning resources page on the Duolingo Wiki.

This is a forum where people come to ask for language advice from real people. That kind of answer is less than helpful.

I'm not a real person? And I was just making a suggestion, because Esperanto doesn't really have a specific place it is spoken in!

I know that, I meant that it hasn't originated in a country. Like, Spanish originated in Spain.

@Mr_Eyl: even then, that doesn't mean that Basque originated in Spain necessarily, it just means that we don't know its history. It's quite likely that it's a remnant of a wider language family that's now mostly gone, but was once spread over a wide area. It could have originated anywhere.

Pretty much any claim that a language or a group of people originates from a particular place falls apart when you look at it too closely, or if you look far enough back in time.

Its vocabulary is mostly Romance, and the structure of the words is similar to Romance in general, as root words typically end with vowels.

Technically, Spanish originated in Italy. :)

It's a descendant of the Latin language which the Romans brought with them when they invaded Spain.

The only language spoken in Spain which has its origins there is Basque.

Esperanto originated in Poland. Its creator was Polish, and he did his work on it there.

Technically, Latin evolved from Proto-Indo-European, so Spanish originated somewhere in Eastern Europe!

See the faulty logic?

That doesn't mean people shouldn't make an effort. This kind of attitude is one of the reasons many adults can't put a coherent sentence together
