how easy is it to learn Esperanto? heard it's one of the easiest languages to learn, is that true?
To be fair, it's pretty easy or everyone because of the felxible grammar and sentence structure. But the European based vocabulary does give people who speak Indo-European languages a bit of an edge.
Yes, Esperanto is easy to learn if you know European languages. Apparently, if you learn Esperanto first, then learning Romance languages will be easier (in terms of recognising vocabulary and perhaps grammar concepts).
I get that the vocabulary is Euopean based, but it can also help with understanding non-European languages too with it's fexible sentence structure. It's also not just Romance languages that it helps you learn but Germanic languages since Esperanto has a fair amount of Germanic vocabulary and grammatical features.
I think it was easier than expected. Knowing a little bit about Spanish was helpful too.
It's ridiculously easy. I reccomend you give it a try for yourself just to see if you like it.
