Esperanto: Learning and Using the International Language is one of the most popular and widely used texts to introduce English speakers to Esperanto.
This introductory textbook begins with a brief English-language overview of Esperanto's history and the international Esperanto community.
A series of ten lessons with dialogues and exercises follows, concentrating on practical communication and vocabulary.
The highlight of the book is a graded reader, which includes history, letters, stories, and poetry (both translated and from original Esperanto literature) that gradually introduce more advanced usage and additional vocabulary.
The book concludes with an abridged Esperanto-to-English dictionary.
This 4th edition of Esperanto: Learning and Using the International Language contains only minor changes from previous editions, updating images and vocabulary, and makes this book available to a new generation of Esperanto learners.
