Information about Esperanto
The international language Esperanto facilitates mutual understanding between people with different native languages. It can be learned much faster than national languages - in one-third the time or even less. Furthermore, Esperanto does not favor one people or nation and is a neutral tool for communication.
Esperanto was presented to the public 125 years ago on the 26th of July, 1887, as a language project. Since then, so many people have learned it and helped it evolve through use, that today Esperanto is an authentic language. This is historically the first proof that a language can be created.
The functionality of Esperanto has been tested in every communication situation, including bilingual education and the writing of scientific and literary works. Esperanto-speaking authors have their own group in PEN International, a worldwide association of writers.
The appeal of Esperanto lies primarily by its ability to be learned quickly, which is also helpful to non-Europeans. Esperanto speakers experience a communal, non-national identity as world citizens with equal language rights. Aside from national and international congresses and meetings, the majority of communication occurs on the Internet. Google and Facebook have Esperanto versions, and the Esperanto Wikipedia now contains about 165,000 articles (27th out of 285 languages). More than 100,000 people are registered on the Esperanto instructional website lernu.net
