Some time in 1995 I wrote a small article on how I learned Esperanto, thinking
it might help others who were interested in doing so, get a better idea
of how to go about it — it's really being much easier than most of us at
first imagine. That page proved reasonably popular among Esperantists and
Much later in 1997/98 I moved some of my hitch-hiking interests over
to the world of Esperanto, sat an interview for a youth magazine, wrote
an article for another youth magazine and promised a series to follow...
One thing led to another and I ended up putting those on-line as well.
In short I started to collect a few Esperanto resources and they are listed
I should note that Esperanto is much more popular than most people believe
it to be, and the number of web sites and electronic resources dedicated
to it far outstrip my ability (or desire) to keep up with. This is but
one small, modest offering. The enthusiast is recommended to visit any
seach engine on the World Wide Web which will return many many pages of
Esperanto material on-line, much more comprehensive and better than this
Pages in English are marked with the English flag
and pages in Esperanto with the Esperanto flag ,
pages in both languages are marked with both.
||How I Learned Esperanto
||My short story on learning the international language.

||A second course in the form of a small mystery novel with 25 chapters,
each chapter introducing new grammatic structures and vocabulary.
||A Summary of Esperanto Grammar
||A sheet I compiled while doing the courses above, to save me flicking
back and forth between lessons trying to find things. First posted on the
net in 1993.
||An article in which I'm interviewed by the youth magazine Kontakto
(12/1997) about my passion for hitch-hiking.
||La Dikfingro 1
||An article I wrote for the youth magazine La Alpa Kanguruo (2/1998)
to slowly introduce some of the ideas that underly that passion.
||La Dikfingro 2
||The second article in that series.
||Psychological Reactions to Esperanto
||A brilliant paper by Claude Piron, an emminent psychologist and Esperantist,
which should help some readers better understand their own biases and reactions
to Esperanto, and helps to explain the position it is in (or isn't in)
today as a world language.
||My call for a society of hitch-hiking esperantists!
