Please be patient...
Hey everyone! We're totally blown away that we now have 1,380 (!!) learners in just 3 hours! Just want to say that we're very happy for all of your enthusiasm and our team of five people will be handling your reports and looking at your sentence discussions as soon as humanly possible, so please bear with us as we handle the avalanche of your awesomeness. :)
I am one of those 1,380. I never intended to learn Esperanto, but now that I've tried it, I'm hooked. If you speak Spanish, Esperanto just flows into your head effortlessly. Since I'm struggling with Russian, I appreciate the simplicity of Esperanto and I appreciate all the hard work of the Esperanto team. Thanks.
Well you've done a wonderful job getting to this point, now it's a case of sifting through all the bugs as this newborn slowly develops!
Exactly. When a course hatches into beta, everybody who "pre-subscribed" gets a notification dropped in their mailbox telling them the course is available. So it's quite logical that you get a massive influx of learners right off the bat.
It would be a lot more meaningful to compare the number of active learners after a week or two...
1,380? Well. I'm sure there are more because I've been waiting for this mysterious language to arrive :)
I am 1,381 ;)
