What Is Esperanto?

Esperanto is a language. But it is a somewhat special language. It was first thought of at the end of the 19th century. It was made specifically in order to enable easy communication between people of different languages. As it was made specially for this purpose, Esperanto can be learnt very quickly! 

As a matter of fact, Esperanto is the easiest of all living languages. There are no exceptions, no irregular verbs. Nevertheless, it is a rich and subtle language: you can truly express everything with it. However, because it is built on just a few rules and structures - that are totally logical - we can learn it in very little time. Right after being introduced to the language, beginners quickly find themselves experimenting with their first sentences in Esperanto. 

This is excellent, because rather than wasting hours learning complex grammar rules, we'll have more time to spend with other fun and important things! - like communicating with others, and making new friends. 

Learning Esperanto has also been proven to help with the learning of other languages. So, any way you look at it, learning Esperanto is always an advantage! 

Add to that the fact that Esperanto does not belong to any country, and that everyone can learn it. It is freely available - and is suitable - for everyone. It promotes a sense of linguistic equality, as it is everyone's second language - so everyone relates through it as equals!    (From The Australian Esperanto Association - )
