This new course from Teach Yourself - the most trusted brand in language learning - teaches learners to communicate with greater confidence and fluency, and to feel at home with Esperanto.
Enjoy Esperanto introduces you to the more advanced points of Esperanto grammar and develops your vocabulary through a variety of engaging and contemporary themes, giving you the skills you need to respond to a wide range of authentic texts and conversations.
What will I achieve by the end of the course?
By the end of Enjoy Esperanto you will have increased your capacity to understand the spoken and written language, and furthered your ability to communicate with Esperanto speakers, orally and in writing. This course aims to take you from a good intermediate level (B1/B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for languages / Advanced Low of the ACTFL) and help you progress up to a C1 / Advanced High level.

"This book is both stimulating and entertaining - a great resource for anyone who has already learnt some Esperanto and wants to take their studies further."
Emeritus Professor of Phonetics, University College London
"Tim Owen, one of the premier scholars and writers in the world of Esperanto, has crafted a new, second volume for advanced learners that is unique in both its content and approach.
Making use of his vast personal knowledge of the language, its history, culture, and literature, and in consultation with international scholars of Esperanto, he has written a text for a new generation that is truly without equal.
This textbook should reward the learner with a high level of competence in the language, and an in-depth knowledge of the community of Esperanto speakers.
This book presents modern Esperanto as it is used and spoken around the world. I am personally delighted to see it available."
