Kial mi lernas Esperanton? | Why am I learning Esperanto?


| esperanto | anglan |
|----|----|
|Ĉi-jare mi eklernis Esperanto. Mi komencis lerni ĝin pro scivolemo kaj mi tre ŝatas lerni ĝin. Mi lernas ĝin en la angla, kiu ne estas mia gepatra lingvo. Do mi lernas du lingvojn samtempe... La sekva citaĵo resonanta kun mia mondvido klarigas kial mi sentas, ke Esperanto estas mia vera lingvo: | This year I started learning Esperanto. I started learning it out of curiosity and I really like learning it. I learn it in English which is not my native language. So I learn two language at the same time... The following quote resonating with my worldview explains why I feel that Esperanto is my true language:|
| "La interna ideo de #Esperanto estas: sur neŭtrala lingva fundamento forigi la murojn inter la gentoj kaj alkutimigadi la homojn, ke ĉiu el ili vidu en sia proksimulo nur homon kaj fraton." -- L.L.Zamenhof, 1912 (lernu.net) | "The internal idea of #Esperanto is: the foundation of a neutral language will help break down barriers between peoples and help people get used to the idea that each one of them should see their neighbors only as a human being and a brother." -- L.L.Zamenhof, 1912 (lernu.net)|
