Going into 2019 I'm working to include more general language learning tips on my YouTube channel Esperanto Variety Show.

Tip: Buy A Book

There's also the library - and in the web version of the Duolingo course there are the tips and notes.

Don't be afraid to spend money on a text book or paper dictionary. The cost is trivial compared to the effort you are putting into learning Esperanto. If you spend $25 on a book and use it for a year, that's about 7 cents per day.

This week's Tip of the Week was inspired by questions asked on the Esperanto board. I LOVE questions... but I also know people love quick and clear answers. This tip will help to that end.

The link should take you directly to the relevant part of the video.

The new Teach Yourself Complete Esperanto book looks really good. Do you have any particular recommendations for an Esperanto dictionary?

I've got my copy (of TY Complete Esperanto) on order and I'm reserving judgement till then. The Wells dictionary is good (old or new.)

Online I say... revo for a quick check of Esperanto words into English. PIV (vortaro.net) for definitions, and the Annotated Dictionary at Esperanto-Me for English into Esperanto.

Tried that esperanto(.)me link, and it redirected me to vortaro(.)tk - Esperanto-Korean vortaro - is that usual?

I'm glad to see that you recommend the Annotated dictionary. I've been using it for a while and was thinking of posting a note about it.

I have been mentioning it a lot, but I try to spend my time in the older threads - which are harder to find. (Lots of new question there all the time, though.)
