This comprehensive course aims to enable readers to reach a good standard of fluency in the international language of Esperanto. Esperanto has a straightforward grammar and a completely regular, phonetic system of spelling and pronunciation, making it much easier to learn than any national language.;The carefully constructed course is designed to help readers master the essentials of Esperanto quickly, and to achieve basic fluency in the written and spoken language now used by eight million Esperantists world wide. Every aspect of the language is clearly presented and explained, with numerous examples. Reading passages and dialogues reinforce readers' understanding of how the language works, while also helping to build up an extensive vocabulary. Exercises, with answers, enable readers to check progress throughout the course, and the two-way vocabulary lists provide a mini-dictionary which is ideal for the beginner. An index is also included for easy reference
