I'm curious about the Celebrity Esperanto AMAs.....

Besides you Chuck, who's an Esperanto celebrity? ;)
I'm still slightly out of the loop, as you can tell... :)

June 16, 2015

I recently stumbled upon a book from (Brazilian I think) spiritualists in esperanto, so maybe the celebrity will be the ghost of Zamenhof ? :)

January 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/SilvestreLeandro

Spiritualisto estas iu ajn kredanta je la ekzisto de io krom la materio, spiritisto estas kredantoj de la doktrino de la spiritoj bazitaj en libroj organizitaj de Allan Kardec disponeblaj laŭ PDF inkluzive en Esperanto. https://www.facebook.com/groups/spiritismo/?ref=br_rs

I read your interview. I've never thought any other means for "Soros" beside serial. That is what it means in Hungarian. Maybe I'm wrong, but until I will learn other languages, I only can think in Hungarian. :)

Te (You) vagy (are) a (the) soros. means You are the next one who must do something (what somebody else already done in your group).

This is the proof Esperanto is NOT a NWO language : even when fluent in it, moneyed men despise it as they have always done. Zamenhof was offering an alternative to the supremacy of English that was already a cultural threat in his times.

Looking through the list, I spotted J. R. R. Tolkien among the list of famous writers. Now, having not known this, but being aware of Tolkien's fondness for creating languages, I followed the link and looked under Languages and philology

Tolkien considered languages inseparable from the mythology associated with them, and he consequently took a dim view of auxiliary languages: in 1930 a congress of Esperantists were told as much by him, in his lecture A Secret Vice, "Your language construction will breed a mythology", but by 1956 he had concluded that "Volapük, Esperanto, Ido, Novial, etc., etc., are dead, far deader than ancient unused languages, because their authors never invented any Esperanto legends".[178]

I must say I have never heard a more ringing endorsement...

September 10, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/flootzavut

He also said that those in favour of an international language should back Esperanto loyally.

It's easy to prove your point when you cherry-pick the quotes that support your position.

Unless you actually read what is said in that wiki article:

"Tolkien considered languages inseparable from the mythology associated with them, and he consequently took a dim view of auxiliary languages: in 1930 a congress of Esperantists were told as much by him, in his lecture A Secret Vice, "Your language construction will breed a mythology", but by 1956 he had concluded that "Volapük, Esperanto, Ido, Novial, &c, &c, are dead, far deader than ancient unused languages, because their authors never invented any Esperanto legends".[181]"

It doesn't really matter to me what he thought. I am learning it for the benefits it will bring and the fact that I think Esperanto is pretty cool.

This might be a silly question, since I never used duolingo to help with the translation of documents, but when will this be available? Once it's out of beta? I noticed that some of the stuff that gets translated are wikipedia articles. Does this mean that we can translate articles from the other wikipedia pages besides English to Esperanto? Or the only options are English->Esperanto and Esperanto->English.

https://www.duolingo.com/BastouXII

I know not too many people are aware of the existence of the unofficial Duolingo wiki, but this information should definitely be there, and the wiki be in this page. It's way easier to find (in the wiki) when one misses the discussion. Granted, with the sticky feature, it's not too hard to find a discussion, but when we get too many sticky posts, it kind of loses it's effectiveness.

I have a question. 'Esperanto facilas' would mean 'Esperanto is easy' Would I be able to say Esperanto facilas lingvon for Esperanto is an easy language?

August 7, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/balou67

A verb cannot describe a noun, so if you want to avoid the use of estas, the noun must be part of the verb: Esperanto facil(a)lingvas. But then it would feel like 'Esperanto facile lingvas', 'Esperanto easily is a language', but that's not the inteded meaning. In the real world, we only change adjectives to verbs when we want to avoid 'estas'.

https://www.duolingo.com/gruhnc728

Oh? What does one "kick" with?

Pardonon, mi estas komencanto.

August 26, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/flootzavut

Yes, I know. Esperanto is the name of the language. Esperanta is the adjectival form of Esperanto, hence having to add la before and lingvo afterwards. TforTristan wanted to know if there was a way to construct the sentence without using the word estas. This was the closest I can think of to avoid using that.

I don't know if it's allowable usage, hence my plea for more advanced users to correct me. I'm well aware that Esperanto is called Esperanto, rather than referred to as la Esperanta lingvo.

Saluton! I'm very new to Esperanto. I found out about it from my boyfriend (who should be starting his own Esperanto courses soon!). I really like the idea of a "universal language". Right now, my boyfriend and I are planning to use it as a kind of "secret" language we can use to talk to each other, like kids use secret code in "best friends"-type movies. So far, I love how easy it is, and since I know a fair number of Latin and Greek roots, I find that I can accurately guess the meanings of words just by picking out those roots! Plus, with no complicated word endings, I can focus on the meaning without stumbling over structure. Now about me... I'm eighteen years old, a senior in high school, American born and raised, female, in a relationship (if you didn't guess already, haha!) and I'm interested in Japanese, Russian, Greek, Latin, French, German, Gaelic, and (believe it or not) Sanskrit. I'm in my third year of Italian Class and can speak it well enough. Other than that, I love anime, video games, reading, writing, drawing, and table top rpgs. And yeah... guess that's it! Pleasure to be here!

Is anyone else having problems with how duolingo manages the daily streaks? I have been on duolingo, completing many lessons, every day and yet, I don't mange to have more than a 3 day streak. I should have at least a 10 day streak by now. Im getting all of the lingots and XP but the graph shows some days with no XP. I'm not upset, it just seems like something needs fixing there.

July 2, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/marcsoton

If this is still a problem for you (no more than 3 day streak, despite practicing every day) do you practice at the same time each day? because it is possible that the time zone you are in may be different from the Duolingo website? I could be wrong, just a thought.

Tamen mi vidas anojn tiujn, kiuj atingis la dek unuan kaj eĉ la dek duan nivelon. Laŭ mi, ne estas sufiĉe da punktoj por tio. Ĉu estas aldonaj kursoj?

July 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/flootzavut

I apologise in advance that my head is kinda muzzy today so I'm not going to try and answer in EO. Once you've completed your tree (or even during the time you're completing it) skills will 'degild' to prompt you to revise them, and the individual or overall strengthen skills are used to regild the 'leaves' on the tree. A sufficiently diligent person can repeat lessons even if they aren't showing as degilded. There is also timed practice.

All of these activities increase XP, which (slowly) increases the level. There are currently 25 levels in each language, regardless of how long or short the tree is or how far one has progressed through it. A beginner who was struggling or doing a lot of revision might get to higher levels without finishing the tree. Someone who had some knowledge and tested out of parts of the tree/got through lessons quickly can finish the tree and be at level 10. In fact, from what I've seen, the typical level to be at having done the EO tree is level 10.

To use an example from my profile; I have finished and done a good deal of revision on the EO tree, but I'm actually at a higher level on German despite being maybe halfway through the tree. That doesn't make my German better than my Esperanto, it just reflects the fact I started German right back in January and did a lot of revision as I went because I was very nearly a total beginner.

(You might get XP for the progress test also, I can't remember - it's been a while since I did it.)

July 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/EricVandenburg

Thanks I get it now. So aside from revision, there isn't much difference between level 10 and level 20. You haven't learned any new words or grammar, you just have a better grasp of the sentences you learned up to level 10.

July 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/flootzavut

More or less!

It depends partly on how long it takes a given individual to get through the lessons.

For example, I tested out of 13 (I think - it was a while ago!) skills in the Esperanto placement test, a few more as individual lessons, and went through the tree relatively fast, so even now some weeks later I'm still coming across the odd word and even sentence that I hadn't had before, particularly in the earlier skills which I basically skipped, but also even in the later skills. I suspect I still haven't been exposed to every single sentence Duo has in its memory banks! (And the team will be adding a few more skills eventually :D)

It would be possible to get to a higher level without having completed the tree if one went slower.

My French and Ukrainian both show the same level, but I've finished the UK tree and not even close for French. I worked through most of the Ukrainian tree, whereas the French level is more or less where I tested out, because I haven't really done any more than that, I only practise French when I run out of other skills to regild!

And like I said before, I'm maybe halfway down the German tree and going sloooow but my German level is the highest!

What the level shows is basically how much XP an individual has amassed in a given language; it shows effort more than skill! :)

July 12, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/EricVandenburg

It does take a lot of effort. I'm deliberately not 'testing out' and although I'm nearly done now, I think I've given myself carpal tunnel syndrome.

A French learner left a comment saying "Duolingo changed? Very little translating from English."

https://www.duolingo.com/comment/9565348

I'm finding that the same is true for Esperanto. Almost all exercises ask us to translate from Esperanto into English. It would be nice if the ratio were about 50:50, so we could develop our skill equally in each direction.

July 15, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/LytjeDk

Yes or perhaps more from English to Esperanto. It's always harder to write or say something than it is to understand it. I get many errors in my "to English" questions. Simply because I don't speak English that well.

August 4, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/amuzulo

I informed our mentor about this and she said they're currently looking into it.

July 16, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/ray919

This translation asymmetry seems to be firmly baked into Duolingo's design.

I already cited a French learner's recent post about this.

Further back in time, from 8 months ago, from an Italian learner:

From two years ago:

Now let's speculate why they do it this way.

The first possibility is that they have a good system in place for parsing English, so it's easier to test for correctness if the direction is from some other language into English, as opposed to parsing some other language in the opposite direction.

The second possibility is that Duolingo expects there to be a larger market for commercially translating non-English texts into English, so they are mostly training people into doing mostly this.

July 21, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/Ungewitig_Wiht

It definitely is a part of Duolingo.

"I did 50 questions (some review, some new) and marked down each time I got German to English and English to German. The results were: 44 German to English (88%) and 6 English to German (12%)." -myself when reviewing Duolingo.

There are studies somewhere that show that passive acquisition is much more beneficial to studying languages than active.

Is there a list of the words covered in the course? Preferably one that separates nouns, verbs, adverbs, etc...

October 9, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/RuthKC

The best list I have heard about is in the Memrise Course associated with the Duolingo Esperanto course. It is organized by skills (same as in the course), not by parts of speech.

https://www.duolingo.com/joyrajd

In Languages 1 Notes it says: "One can use it both for general statements, and to use the active instead of the passive voice:

Oni parolas Esperanton en la domo. Esperanto is spoken in the house."

But isn't this an example of passive voice? Thanks!

November 5, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/RuthKC

The Esperanto sentence is in the active voice (Oni parolas...); it is used to express what would be a passive form in English (Esperanto is spoken ...)

November 5, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/joyrajd

Ah, thank you! I had believed that what I understood to be the literal translation "One speaks Esperanto in the house" (although in this case this translation doesn't capture the actual meaning as well as the given translation) was actually passive, but I guess it is not.

So for example "One does not simply walk into Mordor" is an active voice sentence; I had not known that. Thanks for the help Ruth!

November 5, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/_Tommy

There are ways to form the passive in Esperanto, but it rarely occurs and the preferred option is to use oni and an active voice verb. The passive is usually formed with the verb esti and a participle formed from a verb and the endings "at" for present, "it" for perfect and "ot" for predictive. For example, Li estas donata (it is given), li estas donita (it has been given) and li estas donota (it is about to be given). The different tenses of esti can be used as well. I've also seen the suffix iĝi (to become) to make a vern passive. However, as previously mentioned, the passive is very rare and most Esperantists prefer to use oni.

He just uploaded a whole series of videos explaining the use of the suffixes "-igi / -iĝi" that I think beginners will also find pretty useful: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBB45SIhHfzm6kddlxD--jpDhQwiOYfnK

February 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Lisa0736

I have been enjoying this course a lot. But I find as I get farther and farther along, the dialog I'm supposed to translate is longer and is spoken faster and faster. Yeah, I know I'm supposed to be able to translate it at this point but it's too fast and the turtle doesn't work to slow it down. I've tried the slow turtle icon on several different computers and it doesn't work on any of them so I don't think it's the computer. Can this be hooked up somehow? It would really help on those few long sentences that are spoken in warp speed.

Thanks.

February 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/RuthKC

We are very sorry that it is not possible to slow down natural recorded speech (such as that used in the Esperanto course) on the Duolingo platform. Only courses with synthetic text-to-speech (such as the original French, Spanish and German) have the button that slows down speech.

February 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Lisa0736

Thank you - that makes sense.

I sure hope that the dialog isn't this fast for the rest of the course. As the sentences get longer some are so fast I can't hear the small words that are in the sentence. I listen to some 5-10 times and still miss the word. Perhaps as I learn what is supposed to be there, my brain will add the missing words but in the meantime I'll mark those that I can't understand.

February 26, 2017

I promise that it gets easier with time. If you're not too shy, you can try to practice via Skype—the obvious benefit of having a live partner is, of course, the ability to say, "Mi pardonpetas; bonvole parolu pli malrapide."

Here's a little-known secret: a Japanese Esperantist by the name of Faro hosts Esperanto "conferences" via Skype each morning (rain or shine) from 7:30AM EST. Participants hail from all sorts of places, including Russia, Hungary, China, Iran, Germany, Brazil and the U.S.. All levels welcome. Everyone is very friendly :D

If this sounds interesting to you, simply send a friend-request via Skype to
