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.

There have been studies that suggest learning Esperanto can potentially have quite a significant impact on the acquisition of other languages. ^_^

Most of the biggest Esperanto speakers of all times never intended to learn it or were even hostile towards it. Trying to learn it ("to prove your point") always does the trick

I've started learning Esperanto in the past and was disappointed in the available courses and sites. I've been waiting for a decent one, and here it is. :)

    You can’t compare it like that, there are many people waiting eagerly and subscribing very quickly to the course, it’s not proportional. If you want a meaningful comparison, you should compare (for instance) all languages after one week.

    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...

    I really don't understand. What is the difference when the course is in beta or stable?

    In beta it still has a lot of errors (i. e. missing alternative translations) and once we get most errors sorted out, it is considered stable. :)
