Saluton! Mi estas Mac^o. Bonvenon a la Lingvokasto. Hi! I'm Matt. Welcome to Lingvokasto, the podcast designed to teach English speakers how to speak and understand Esperanto, the international language. Esperanto is an easy, fun language to learn, and it is incredibly useful. It is incredibly easy to learn for English speakers and for people who speak other languages. Because of the ease at which a person from anywhere in the world can learn this language, it opens the speaker up to a whole world of international correspondence, literature, music, and so much more.

Esperanto is a constructed language, designed by Ludovik Lazarus Zamenhof in Poland in 1887. Zamenhof called the language "Lingvo Internacia", which means International Language, but he published his book under the pseudonym "Doktoro Esperanto", which is where the current name of the language was taken. Esperanto translates as "one who hopes", and Zamenhof's hope for the international language to unite people all over the world continues to live in the heart of every Esperantist.

I created this podcast because I am a student of Esperanto, but was unable to find a podcast that would help me, a native English speaker, learn the language. I am sure that there are others out there searching for the same thing, so, since I have experience in podcasting, I decided to start an instructional podcast for the learning of this amazing language. I have studied Esperanto before, so I have some background knowledge, but as we get deeper into the language, I'll be learning along with you.

I hope you'll join me on this journey into the world of Zamenhof. Please subscribe to the podcast through your favorite podcasting application. If you want to ask a question or make a comment, post it here on our webpage, or email me at the address given at the end of the podcast.

Saluton, I have been working since the mid 1970's in isolation learning Esperanto a little bit at a time when I could afford to invest the time.. I still don't have much skill and was very happy to receive your blog in my google search alert for today.

I have placed the RSS feed in MyYahoo and downloaded your first two posts.. I will keep on paying attention, keep up this good work.

Hi Chris!

It's a pitty yo didn't continue with your blog. In fact, the mp3 file link is broken now. I'm trying to find some mp3 files to learn Esperanto. I drive about 2 hours every day and I thought it could be useful to do something during all those 2 hours, like learning a new language!
