Chu vi povas kompreni min?
Raise your hand if you could understand what I just said.
If you couldnt understand, dont worry, because most cant! Only 2 million people speak esperanto.
But the feeling of not understanding something someone is saying to you, Im sure is something that we can all relate with.
Not being able to communicate can be very frustrating. Language, among other things, can be a source of division or even a cause of war.
That's why in 1887, a man by the name of Zamenhof endeavored to create a single language to help unify the human race--esperanto.
Im sure youre thinking, only 2 million people speak esperanto, why should i put in the effort?
Esperanto was created with the learner in mind. There are only 16 rules that govern the language. On average, for every 10 hours you spend learning spanish or english, you only need 1 to learn esperanto.
The esperanto community is very close-knit. Once you join the community, you will have a free couch to sleep on practically anywhere in the world.
And although it may not be practical, you should learn esperanto on principle alone, to stand for world peace, even if it may not happen in your lifetime.
Afterall, 'esperanto' directly translates to 'one who hopes.' Thank you.
