Bonvenon al Esperanto-USA!

Esperanto is a constructed international language created in 1887 by Dr. L. L. Zamenhof. It was designed to be easy to learn and foster communication between people of different native languages. Esperanto is spoken by a global community and is used in various cultural, educational, and social contexts. In the United States, there is an active community of Esperanto speakers who participate in events, conferences, and local groups to promote and practice the language.

Esperanto-USA (also legally known as the Esperanto League for North America) is a registered US 501(c)(3) nationwide charitable organization, led by a board of directors with the assistance of various committees. Esperanto-USA was established in 1952 to promote education in Esperanto and connect speakers and supporters. It is primarily supported by members, and is open to anyone, regardless of fluency in Esperanto. Membership offers a valuable opportunity to promote Esperanto in the United States and receive our informative newsletter.
