Important reason's to learn Esperanto, and a ask to the Doulingo-Esperanto community.
Firstly let me tell you abit about myself, I was travelling to France In the summer of 2018 wondering how cool It would be to know a few languages. Months later I discovered Doulingo.
Now there's only a couple of reasons I'm even learning Esperanto. (This Is to silence those who hate on Esperanto!).
It's kind of endangered! It sounds wierd but If I could keep L.L Zamenhoff's dream alive and keep Esperanto used I feel like my life has a purpose. If I ever have a family I'll make Esperanto a domestic language like most Esperanto families do now.
It's shown knowing Esperanto especailly at a very high standard can boost you In European and Romantic Languages. Afterall It Is a hybrid of Polish, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese, Italian, English, Greek and some others, we'll never know entirely.
It's one of the easiest languages to learn In the world.
Even though I don't see Esperanto being nowhere near It's Intended goal I'd like to spread and teach after years of hardcore studying. Just think If English and Esperanto + your native langauge were taught around the world would be alot easier to understand everybody. Not everyone who can speak English understands each other with Esperanto It's In someways easier. I struggle to hear Indian, Pakistani and even some other groups of poeple speaking english.
Dialect and accent can make It hard to understand, Esperanto In someways Is just easier.
5.) I would like to keep Zamenhoff's dream alive by making It more popular and commonly used.
And lastly I'd really like to connect with Esperanto speakers! If any of you's would like to meet a learner and be a mentor too hit me up please. My Snapchat Is paulruby3.
Dankon kaj havas bona hodiau!
To add: it's genuinely fun. Once you get to the point of being able to use its suffix/prefix system extensively and proficiently, which isn't hard compared to other languages, it gives you endless opportunities for writing, singing, joking, talking about ideas in new ways... so it draws a lot of creatives for this reason, to an extent that most other conlangs fall short of.
im enjoying learning esperanto a lot. i got one of my friends into it and, although im much further in the tree than he is, its fun to say random phrases we're given by duo to each other. i still stumble a bit over the pronunciations of longer words (like "watch") but it is actually fun, like kittybecca said
Regarding your point 3: It's one of the easiest languages to learn In the world.
True. Although there's a steep learning curve initially, as with any new language, it's easier to really master it to a high level in a relatively short time. Because of the regularity of the grammar and the versatility of the roots and affixes, you get a lot of mileage out of even a little learning --- much more so than in other languages, in my experience.
It sounds wierd but If I could keep L.L Zamenhoff's dream alive and keep Esperanto used I feel like my life has a purpose.
Yes! I feel that way too. This is such a good idea that would benefit humankind so much, we cannot let it die. Luckily, thanks to the Internet and apps like Duolingo, there are more people learning Esperanto now than probably at any other time in history.
If I ever have a family I'll make Esperanto a domestic language like most Esperanto families do now.
Right on! It would be amazing to have kids who are denaskaj Esperantistoj. You'd probably be a bit of celebrities, and what a great way to open people's eyes to the Esperanto community, by example.
