I never thought about learning Esperanto before, but I looked through this thread and had a look at Lernu.

I have to agree that it's very addictive. I went through the first ten lessons of Bildoj kaj Demandoj, and I have to say Esperanto is very refreshing in comparison with natural languages (especially the phonology).

Mi estas studento. (lol)

Maybe I'll actually start studying it.

You could try doing Gerda Malaperis again, since you're probably at least at intermediate now.

You should. The Esperanto community is probably the most welcoming language community out there. Just look at Everything's experience: he got several Esperantists and Esperanto students offering him advice and encouragement.

That's awesome! Assimil should have taught you around 1500 words, which is A LOT in
Esperanto. Now, all that's left to do is to use the language. Read websites or books,
write messages, start using it in conversations and you will quickly acquire any words
you're missing.

For example, set your browser homepage to http://nunonia.com/ to get a daily
dose of news in Esperanto. More links for using Esperanto can be found at
http://how-to-learn-any-language.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?T ID=29046 or
http://how-to-learn-any-language.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?T ID=6353

If you want, I can give you a quick evaluation over Skype. Send me a pm.

The Esperanto Association of Flanders just made some high-quality Esperanto ebooks
available for free. These normally sell in their online store.

http://www.ipernity.com/doc/flandra_esperanto-ligo/album/179 889

Includes the easy reader "─łu rakonti novele?" by Johano Valano aka Claude Piron, which
might be interesting for you, or the translation of "The Count of Monte Cristo". I also
really enjoyed reading "Flugi kun kakatuoj", a historic novel focussing on the culture of
Australian aboriginal people.

I know I've seen lots of negative opinions of Assimil's Esperanto course, but it seems like most of it is complaining about the audio and the first few lessons.

If you look at it without the audio past the first few lessons, is the course that bad?

Everything, On the large photo there are two pictures of Ludoviko Zamenhof on the right and his wife Klara Zilbernik on the left.

Later on it teaches quite a few expressions that I never heard before (sayings) and the
language generally feels textbookish. Once you know the basics, you'd be much better off
talking to people, or listening to Esperanto radio.
