Is anyone here an Esperanto speaker?

I am learning Esperanto. My brother said I would have trouble finding people who speak it. He's right, for the outside world. I would like to have some Esperanto speaking friends

Mi volas deziri al vi sukceson por lerni Esperanton. Vi certe trovos personojn kun kiuj paroli kaj skribi Esperanton. I am sure you will find people to speak and write to.

The Hellotalk app is good for talking and practicing, and I'm pretty sure I used it for Esperanto a while ago. I got my Portuguese up a lot from talking to people on Hellotalk and I had something like 200 chats/partners so I had very diverse conversations. Esperanto isn't as big as Portuguese so it'll be harder to find partners but yeah :)

I just started using HelloTalk to practice my Polish and it's been phenomenal! :)

Well, I don't think I qualify as a "speaker" yet, but I'm learning it.

That should be 'an Esperanto speaker'!

Thank you, that's very kind of you, although I never worry about downvoting generally.

All good :) I am so jealous of your streak btw o:

I'm learning Esperanto myself and there are a number of Esperanto speakers on Duolingo, I believe. I'm sure you'll meet some. :)

Also check some of the other Esperanto websites like lernu

Native speakers, I doubt it, but "speakers", there may be a lot

I am a native speaker and have met several dozens of others. :)

Nu, mi parolas kaj skribas ĝin sufiĉe flue ekde sufiĉe multa tempo.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eterrestrial1324

I'm not that good at it yet i mean i could read the "mi parolas kaj skribas (I speak and write)" part but not the rest


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lingvulino

ĝi is it and ĝin is also it when it is the object, so what he is saying is that he speaks and writes it, that is Esperanto, sufiĉe flue ekde sufiĉe multa tempo means sufficiently or quite fluently for quite some, a lot of, time.

Se mi skribus anglalingve, vi ne kredus ke mi "vere" parolas la lingvon (if I write in English you wouldn't believe I am a "true" esperanto speaker)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/compicej

I am not yet but I hope I will be one soon :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eterrestrial1324

you are farther along in Esperanto than me I'm only level 4 :P


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/compicej

Come on! Only two levels :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/eterrestrial1324

yeah well i forget easily and when i tried to do a practice i failed it and it made me really upset then i failed on purpose cause i felt so bad and i dont think ill be leveling up anytime soon


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/compicej

Of course you will. Don't give up. The same thing happens to me sometimes :)

:) I get bored very easily though so i want to quit and i get upset and yeah.....I lowered my daily XP from 50 to 20 so I wouldn't get as upset and it's easier to reach when i first started out it was 50 cause i was so encouraged to learn and some days i got like 120 XP but now i only get like 20 and 30 XP a day because I'm less encouraged and 2 times now I have lost my wager on double or nothing i am trying it again because i lowered my XP i know that today i am going to level up to level 5 cause i only need to get 14 more XP to level up and i have to get 20 XP today
