Thanks from the Esperanto Community
I have to say, Duolingo has gone really far to help everyone that wants to speak a new tongue. I see a Duolingo growing as improves it content. There has been recent books in German, French Portuguese and Spanish, why not Esperanto aswell? Esperanto has been a very small language before the Lesson which was launched in 2016. Steadily, but surely, the Esperanto community began to grow and is spreading to other language learning websites. There has been increase in Esperanto videos and vlogs,teachers and more.

There are many books available in Esperanto. Not being an afficionado of the language, I can’t give you tips on which are good and which not worth your time, but here’s a link with several:
