Esperanto Links

I have been falling behind on my reading of stories on fictionpress and my inbox is stuffed with story alerts. So tonight I read a short story called Accidental Predator by Greyfox Cowgirl. The story was complete, which is always a plus. If you spend any time at all on a storysite, you quickly realize that the biggest drawback to it is the fact that there are so many incomplete stories. But, on the bright side, this has taught me that it is not necessary to see or read a story to the end to get some enjoyment out of it. Anyhow, the short story was a werewolf teen thing, not too bad if you enjoy that sort of thing. Here's the link check it out for yourself: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2820340/1/

In my last post, I gave out some German links that I thought was useful in studying the language. Here are some links useful for leaning Esperanto. I surfed through YouTube and found most of their offerings kind of useless. Most of the videos had weird background music and other annoying distractions, but I found one that was pretty good.

The last link I found that I think is useful is a text and audio links of the book: The Esperanto Teacher by Helen Fryer. I plan on downloading the audio and listening to it while I read the text version of it. Here are those links

Take care of yourselves, dear readers, I shall return.

Ankoraŭ paro da aliaj bonaj lernorimedoj, kiujn vi ne menciis sed eble trovos sufiĉe utilaj (a couple of other good learning resources you didn't mention that you might find quite useful):

http://www.lernu.net (free courses, dictionary, grammar)
http://www.ikurso.net (free multimedia beginner's course)

If you read the whole book "The Esperanto Teacher" you will learn Esperanto. Would you have the patience to read it all?

The courses referred through lernu.net and ikurso.net are more easygoing.

Thank-you. I'll be sure to check all the links that you have mentioned. Most of the time I have patience. "The Esperanto Reader" is an older book and I know sometimes books from that era can be boring. Thanks again for the links.
