There sure are a lot of sentences about females and cafes. :P

Sure, it's difficult to build sentences with very limited vocabulary, but team Esperanto did a great job so far =)

Is it the Esperanto language that lacks vocabulary?

Or is it just the Esperanto course that lacks vocabulary?

Neither. If you introduce only the words "girl", "boy", "man", "woman", "I", "am" and "a" in the first lesson of the first skill, then you can only create sentences with this vocabulary. This is how every course works and this is why we have a lot of sentences with this vocabulary. The sentences become more complex as the course proceeds.

That is very insightful! Thank you for your prompt reply! ^_^

They like to pretend half the sentences aren't about kissing and cafes... It's just the Esperanto course

It is US that lack vocabulary, as we've just started learning it

Can you translate this as "Beautiful girls sing at cafes" too?

I'm thinking of French, where "en" means "at."
