I'm on the road this week but have discovered Cindy McKee's eLibro site. Many of the books are familiar from similar collections, but there seems to be some additional books on Cindy's site. I"ve been reading La Tuta Esperanto, a gramatiko-lernolibro and I'm enjoying it. A bit of humor at times, all in Esperanto.

Did a little Listen/Reading of La Respubliko (Platon) in French/Esperanto. There are several books on the site above that have audio in French or Spanish. Not planning to do a lot of L/R with French or Spanish at the moment, but down the road...

Duolingo is now averaging only 140 XP per week to keep the tree gilded, so it has crossed a welcome 20XP per day threshold.

Thinking about picking up Teach Yourself Esperanto when I return home. The written exercises and slightly different approach should be helpful..

Somehow I fell off the Esperanto wagon when I returned home 2 weeks ago. Have been listening some in the car or in the kitchen, but not all the time. Have been binge watching or listening to other stuff (in English). :(

Duolingo has finally been wrestled down to only needing 10 XP / day to re-gild the tree.

Have to come up with something to get my studying back on track.

Any suggestions?

Ĉu vi jam uzis Amikumun? Tajpi kaj paroli kun aliaj homoj helpas. Eble vi povos legi ion pli malfacile, libron de Claude Piron aŭ (mian plej ŝatatan) Julio Baghy.

During a lightning talk yesterday (at the Polyglot Gathering), Georg Jähnig mentioned many resources such as radio broadcasts, music, literature and what not. I'm pretty sure there are links in this thread:
https://forum.language-learners.org/vie ... =26&t=5213

I wish you the best of luck finding something that can get you back on track.

Mi estas en Esperantujo. La Landa Kongreso de Nord-Ameriko komencos morgaŭ,

Mi veturis aŭte kaj la vojaĝo daŭrigis ok horoj. Mi aŭskultis La Eta Princo, kvin lecionoj de Pasaporto al la Tuta Mondo, kaj ĝis la dekkvara leciono de Jen Nia Mondo.

Mi ĝojis paroli kun aliaj esperantistoj ĉe la interkona vespero.

Mi pensas ke mi havos bonan sperton.

Ankaŭ mi trovis http://clozemaster.com/, kaj mi ŝatas ĝin.

Re: Luke loĝas en NASK

Postby luke » Wed Jul 12, 2017 9:31 am

Mi pasas multajn tagojn en NASK kaj mi ĝuas la viziton. Estas pli ol kvindek Esperantistoj ĉi tie. Ĉiutage ni havas klasojn, prelegojn,kaj neformalaj babiladonj. MI estas in la mez-nivela klaso kaj ni havas bonegan instruiston. Vere estis bona ideo veni al NASK.

Eble iam vi venos!

Long term goals (1 year)
NASK 2018
Sit and succeed the C1 exam

Tactics
Listen and read a new post each day at Esperanta Ret Radio Use a bit like an Assimil course. I.E., make flashcards from the BRO words and review the audio regularly to build a solid corpus and word stock.
Listen to podcasts in the kitchen and on the road. Muzaiko, Pola Radio, 3zzz, and kern.punkto.info are likely targets.
Talk to myself in Esperanto.
Learn the 2500+ words in the Baza Radikaro Oficiala (BRO) - the official and most often used word roots.
Write a page in Esperanto most days.
Do some coursework most days. First up is Pasaporto al la Tuta Mondo. This run through is reading, listening, and creating flashcards for passive/unknown words from the BRO.
Do some systematic reading most days. I have a handful of lernolibroj and a couple of progresanto lernolibrojn.
Continue through Step by Step in Esperanto. Over 1000 short random lessons.
Keep my Duolingo streak going a while longer.
40 sentences per day at ClozeMaster will get me pretty much through the "Fast Fluency Track" in a year. That should only take 10-15 minutes per day. (They have a nice dashboard and charts, which is a nice distraction).

I've updated my progress bar signature to better track things and maybe give some gamification motivation.

Progreso...

Mi havas kelkajn vortkartojn de Baza Esperanta Radikaro. Kelkfoje ili ne estas ofte uzata, sed ili ja estas oficiala, do bona.

Daŭras la laboro kun Duolingo kaj Clozemaster ĉiutage.

Hodiaŭ mi estis feliĉa trovi artikolon kaj rakonton pri NASK kiel valora iniciato en Esperantujo de la autoro de la lernolibroj Niaj Kunuloj, la Bestoj kaj Floroj de Bono, kiujn li grandanime donis al partoprenantoj de NASK. Alia ligilo al la sonartikolo.

Mi ja parolis a mi mem kelkfoje aŭ ofte, depende de la tago.

Kaj mi ankaŭ ĝuis aŭskulti diversajn podkastoj de kern.punkto.info, ktp.

I am studying a little Esperanto everyday.

I've stopped my Duolingo streak. I have about 900 points to get to the next level (15). Planning to restart after some months as a refresher. Re-gild the tree.

http://esperantaretradio.blogspot.co.at/ is my daily. Also doing some podcasting.

Living in a new area with Spanish speaking neighbors, so planning to boost that back up while keeping a base going in Esperanto.

Have over 50,000 points on clozemaster. Although my streak is not long and it isn't rewarded, the lessons are so short that I want to keep hitting it everyday. It's one of the tactics

Don't know if it was related, but after ditching Duolingo, my Esperanto studies fell off.

Mi lernas Esperanton denove!

La duolinga arbo ne plu estis ora. Nun mi havas dek kvar tagoj sen studa rompo. La arbo reoraigxas.

I'm learning Esperanto again!

The duolingo tree was no longer gold. Now I have a 14 day study streak. The tree is becoming gold again.

I also listened through my Jen Nia Mondo recordings that have all the English stripped out. Also listened to La Eta Princo. Now I'm relistening to Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo.

Tre bone!
