Free taster course:
The Esperanto-Association of Britain (EAB) runs a free introductory correspondence course. It is designed to give you a quick introduction to Esperanto. You will be assigned an accredited tutor. All you have to do is study each lesson and send your translations by e-mail to the tutor, who will send you the next lesson along with your corrected work. Here is the link to the first lesson.
Through authentic conversations, vocabulary building, grammar explanations, and extensive practice and review, Complete Esperanto will equip you with the practical skills you need to use modern Esperanto in a variety of realistic settings and situations, developing your cultural awareness along the way.
It’s a course disguised as a novel. The first chapter is very easy and then it gets progressively more complicated. New words and grammar points are explained along the way.
La teorio Nakamura:
It has been written by Anna Lowenstein. The book is written to be accessible to beginners. We usually have a spare copy or two during the lessons if you prefer to buy it directly from us.

App to find esperantists (and people who speak other languages) locally.
Ekparolu to speak online with an experienced esperantist:
It is not a lesson but a 1-to-1 conversation for 30mn with an experienced Esperantist (called ‘geonklo’ and you as a student are a ‘genevo’). Once you are registered on the site you can select a 30mn slot and decide who you want to talk to (more than 60 people to choose from). Each session is different as it depends on the person you’re talking to of course but he/she will adapt to your level as the idea is to help you progress. Note that it’s not for complete beginners so there is a language test you have to do when you register in order to check your level.
