That was cool! I've seen some videos of spoken Esperanto, but never heard anyone singing it. I don't know any Esperanto, so I thought perhaps it was you and that your sentence "Jen kanto en Esperanto" might mean "I sing Esperanto" but I looked it up on Google translate. I got a kick out of this:

Well, Google translator almost got it. XD At least it only confused the name of the language. I can see why you thought that sentence meant “I sing…” as you are learning Spanish. But no, “jen“ is just one of the wonderful words of Esperanto. I mean that it gives elegance and fluency to the language (not all its words are so).

If you have curiosity there is an Esperanto version of a Spanish song sung by the original singer: Esperanto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOBkKcbJUAE Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzZO6SF6plc

It does this all the time. I have been frequently translating from Esperanto to Russian, and it always translates "Esperanto" into the Russian word for English, which caused some confusion with the person I was communicating with until I figured out what was happening, haha. It seems to translate properly in questions, but not in statements.

On the contrary, this is a video of someone singing in Esperanto. It is completely appropriate for a language learning website.

No, it is not spam. This is a language learning website. The forums are to discuss language learning.

You can ask questions here: Questions about the best way to study, questions about pronunciation, which is the best dictionary (and why), questions about why a certain word is used in a sentence instead of another, things like that.

You can share cool stuff here: A really great book for beginners that you found, a super helpful video series on the Internet that has easy to understand vocabulary, videos of you speaking all your languages and asking for corrections and input, videos of songs in rare languages (like Esperanto).

You can also ask questions related to Duolingo: how to add a profile picture, why are you not progressing to the next level, how to use timed practice, and things of that nature.

The forums are NOT for: asking for lingots (they should be earned), saying hello to your friends (do this on their profiles), or idle chatter about kittens, motorbikes, your favorite video game, sports teams, etc. (these kinds of things can be discussed in the profiles, but not in the forums).

I hope that helps a little.
