The Mysterious Language: Esperanto
I am just about to start my first Esperanto course!<h1>YAY :)</h1>
I have never ever heard of this language before until I saw that duoLingo had it under incubation.
After a long time of research to try and comprehend what Esperanto is, and why I had never heard of it, what country it came from, etc... I finally have the chance to start learning :D<h1>Best wishes to everyone starting!!</h1>
Feeling super privileged to get to know what I consider 'The Mysterious Language: Esperanto' :) Angelène
Good job! It is surprisingly not that challenging. Maybe it will get more challenging later on, lol
Well, that is splendid! I can understand why they tried to make it an international language :)
Spread it around! lol! As I have mentioned below, maybe I can start a trend :D :D
I just finished watching it, and he is absolutely horrible! LOL! It's so horrible, yet, it's so funny. That poor man!
I found it intriguing when he mentioned generally people just brush off about Esperanto, and why bother learning an artificial language, etcetera, kind of attitude. I had the opposite reaction for I researched immensely to try and comprehend what it was. Well! It's people's loss, lol.
I would have been the same and would have also researched it extensivly when I first heard about Esperanto, but I've always been interested in languages. I assume, you might be the same from your reaction to first hearing about Esperanto.
I think the first time I heard about it was from a teacher when I was around 12. I was already interested at that time but that was before lernu and duolingo and I think internet was fairly crappy at that time.
Although it's horrible what Evildae and his friend did, and I can't help wonder if they possibly lost someone who might be interested in the language or who might hear about it now and pass the information down to some kid who would eventually decide to learn it someday. It's interesting how these things happen.
But with that said, I do understand why he did it. It gets tiring explaing the same story to people over and over again.
