I have chosen: Esperanto!

As my new language I have chosen Esperanto! I am enjoying the first stages of it and the male's voice, XD. I hope it is a good language to learn and that I will continue to be happy with it. Thank you all!

I have no idea what you just said... English, perhaps? I am only a begginner...

Bonŝancon, comencanto! (Good luck, beginner!)

Saluton. I don't mean to be rude,but 'beginner' in esperanto is komencanto (I'm only mentioning because when I saw how you spelt it I was confused at why the two 'c' letters would have different sounds.
To Silver_Night, this shows an amazing part of esperanto that you can know something is spelt wrong because it doesn't fit the pronunciation; no exception :)

Bonvenon komencanto, al la esperantaro! :D

Despite the fact that Esperanto is a new language. It is quite developed and functional. Take a look at this page: https://eo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikipedio:%C4%88efpa%C4%9Do Bonan semajnon Silver_Night !

I wasn't sure I'd be too into it when I first started.

Now it's one of my most favorite languages, if not my favorite of all.

Bonŝancon! Good luck!

(Vocab you might not know yet:

Dankon. Mi korektis ĝin.

July 7, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/amuzulo

Just to clarify:

I corrected it. = Mi korektis ĝin.
I had to correct it. = Mi devis korekti ĝin.
I have corrected it. = Mi estas korektinta ĝin.

A note on that last sentence, only use -inta if you absolutely want to express an action this precisely. Most of the time, the simple verb form -is is the better choice.

I think my brain tangle up English and French grammar and tried to apply them to Esperanto! Thanks.

It is sad that you stopped learning Esperanto... It gets funnier and more interesting in the end :D

July 8, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/LastChance_15

Yes, I decided it would be more important to learn a fully-functioning language like French instead of one that maybe 1,000 random people speak. But I will take your word for it! Thanks!

I need to clarify something. I don't mind if you decided to stop learning Esperanto. That is your decision and probably it's well taken. Just to say that Esperanto is a fully functioning language, the size of the speaker community can be a (personal) reason to don't learn a language because there are less chances to use it, but the language is not a project or something under developing, it's fully-functioning.

Today I was in a room that held more than a thousand Esperanto speakers. Nearly 3,000 took part in the World Esperanto Congress. The Universala Esperanto-Asocio has about 5,000 full members and about 15,000 allied members (some are in both categories).

A conservative estimate is that about 160,000 - 300,000 people speak Esperanto.

Yes, but Esperanto helps me to understand French better. :-)

July 10, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/LastChance_15

Oh, yes! they are similar!

July 10, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/zaragorti

I made the same decision and dedicated myself to other languages for a while but then I came back to Esperanto. Unplanned languages are riddled with too many inconsistencies, which I find exasperating. I also realised that you can spend thousands of hours learning a language and still not master vocabulary, idioms, pronunciation, etc. You will always be a foreign speaker, even when you reach an advanced level. With Esperanto, though, everyone has started at the same level. As an Esperanto saying goes, 'In Esperanto-land no one is a foreigner' (En Esperantujo neniu estas fremdulo').

You are going to have a lot of fun with it. I see you finished the Spanish tree, a lot of the words are going to ring as similar to Esperanto vocabulary, but the conjugation is going to be a million times easier. You should check out the movie Incubus for some completely Esperanto based art. Have fun and good luck!
