On a neutral linguistic plateau to demolish the walls between nations so that every man sees in the other just another human being and his brother"

[L. Zamenhof, 1912]


Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. Created by a Bialystoker – Ludwik Zamenhof. Zamenhof's goal was to come up with an easy to learn and politically neutral language that would serve as a universal second language to foster peace and international understanding. Esperanto's vocabulary is based for the most part on Romance, Germanic, Slavic, Finno-Ugric, and other Indo-European languages. It constitutes the base for about 40 other constructed languages.

  • Traditional symbol of Esperanto is a green five-pointed star
