WHAT IS ESPERANTO?Esperanto was first published in 1887 by Dr. L. Zamenhof with the aim of promoting world peace and international understanding through clear communication. Today it has speakers in over 100 countries.
Esperanto is a language specially planned and created to be a neutral second language for the people of all nations. It can cross the language barriers of our multicultural world making communication so much easier between people with different mother tongues.
Since Esperanto was originally created, it has spread worldwide. It is constantly evolving and modern words are added as the need arises. This keeps Esperanto alive and fresh. Esperantists have enthusiastically embraced the Internet and there are a huge number of Esperanto online sites and forums.
