What is Esperanto?

Esperanto is a language created for people who speak different native languages. It is neutral, international, and easy to learn. Esperanto is used by millions of people to make friends, learn about other cultures, travel, get the latest international news, and more. It can also just be a fun language to use with your friends, or mental exercise because of its regular grammar and word construction.

Esperanto is a great language for college students: You can spend a year or a semester learning the language, and then for your spring or summer vacation you can use it to travel around the world. In 2001, the Societo hosted a lecture by Amanda Higley, a college student from California who traveled through Europe for 16 months using Esperanto!

For more information on the language or how to learn it, see the links page.
