Congratulations, Esperanto learners and speakers - your time has finally come!
After many votes were cast, Esperanto has been selected as the next beta language on LingQ! Now is the time for you, Esperanto speakers, to grow the Esperanto community on LingQ!
Created in the late 1800s, Esperanto has grown to become the most popular constructed language in the world, and now boasts as many as 2 million speakers worldwide!
Esperanto is known as an international auxiliary language, as Esperanto was created to make it easier to communicate with people all over the world.
If you’re an experienced Esperantist, why not help out by uploading lessons to the Library?
For all learners of Esperanto, be sure to check out Project Gutenberg for an entire collection of free books in Esperanto!
Get started on Esperanto today!

Remember that you can study any language on LingQ! Simply use a language slot for a language you don’t plan on studying.
As a paying member, you can import as many texts and audio files as you want and study from the comfort of LingQ. Open a dictionary in another browser window and start saving LingQs. Let LingQ keep track of your words of reading, hours of listening, Known Words total and more!
If anyone has Esperanto dictionaries that they would like to see here on LingQ, please let us know by posting below!
I’m sure some people will be attracted to this. Only a plus for LingQ in general.
How am I supposed to add an English translation to the lessons I upload? Otherwise, no one can learn.
I’ve have never used a translation to learn here at LingQ. I won’t in the future either.
However, I believe that you can add a translation in the notes. Is there a separate translation section? I haven’t seen one.
One thing I might mention - the audio quality of the lesson you uploaded isn’t usable. It will need rerecording. Otherwise, thanks for sharing it.
Hindi is leading the poll.
Are there even any Hindi natives here to contribute content . . . ?
How would that work?
@Deondradcj - To add a translation, follow the steps found here: http://lingqcentral-en.lingq.com/how-to-add-resources-to-lessons (http://bit.ly/oUrLKa)
Also, it’s great that you’re interested in sharing lessons, but the audio quality isn’t very good. Is it possible to use a different microphone to record the lesson audio?
Maybe, it’s a good idea to get LingQ translated into Hindi and get a video made for Youtube, introducing the site.
Is it possible to add any of these Esperanto dictionaries? I have no idea as to the quality ( I don’t know Esperanto), but it might be a good start.
Thanks for the suggestions. I’ve now added the first dictionary. The 2nd one won’t work with our current interface, as it’s just a big long list, and the 3rd seems to actually only be an English to Esperanto dictionary, not the other way around.
Oh okay, fair enough. Well, thank you for adding the first one!
I know, my microphone is horrible. I think I won’t post anymore lessons then…
Is it possible to link to the dictionary on the lernu website?
It isn’t possible to implement* their dictionary in its current form.
Ah, that’s too bad. I went through the Greetings and Goodbyes lessons, but none of the dictionaries seem to be functioning. Other than lernu, I’ve never used an online dictionary for Esperanto so I’m not sure what’s out there. We’ll have to hunt around I guess. I know there are downloadable dictionaries, but I guess those are no good?
Did you notice that I added the English translation of Greetings and Goodbyes? You can look at it if there are some words you don’t understand.
We had such a problem with a Latin-Italian dictionary, but eventually our LingQ member Dominick (odiernod) managed to make it possible to integrate it on LingQ. We could ask him if he can help with those Esperanto dictionaries as well.
Alex could this one work? Reta Vortaro
Am I right in thinking we have two fluent Esperanto-speakers on LingQ?
How do you tell how fluent you are? Are there Esperanto exams?
Apologies for my ignorance. It’s still hard for me to think of a constructed language being a “proper” language :-0
Yes, there are three exams, at least in Italy. I passed just the first, although with the top mark. I haven’t practised it foryears now, so I am not that fluent at the moment.
And you should know that there are also native esperanto speakers, whose parents speak esperanto to each other.
I understand Esperanto fairly well, so Greetings and Goodbyes weren’t a problem. I just wanted to test out using Esperanto with a dictionary. I’m not sure if I’m going to use LingQ for Esperanto myself. I’m probably like yourself - I haven’t used it much for the last few years and I’m rusty. I find it difficult to maintain momentum with Esperanto - I’m hoping that LingQ will become kind of a one-stop-shop repository for interesting content.
