Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. Its name derives from Doktoro Esperanto (Esperanto translates as ‘one who hopes’), the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, theUnua Libro, in 1887. Zamenhof’s goal was to create an easy-to-learn and politically neutral language that would foster peace and international understanding between people with different regional and/or national languages.

  1. Everything you have included here is correct, but I’d like to add the people can learn this planned international language on http://www.lernu.net

    Oh, and I’d like to point out that there are a lot of Esperanto books on eBay at present.
