"Elementary,..!" Esperanto Course

Welcome to the downloads page for EAB's "Elementary,..!" Esperanto Course. If you have bought the course, you have the option of downloading the books' text as PDF files (to read on an e-reader), and downloading CD audio tracks as MP3 files (to play on an MP3 music player), if you find that more convenient than using the printed books and the physical CDs themselves.

The CD audio tracks (dialogues) have been recorded at normal speaking speed. But some beginner students have found this difficult to follow at first, so (below) we also provide you with an optional "slow playback" alternative version, intended to ease you into listening to new sounds, words and accents. You should try to move to the regular version as soon as possible (with the slow version as a "safety net" in reserve, should you need it) so that you become accustomed to Esperanto spoken at realistic speeds. For technical reasons, the sound quality of these "slow playback" tracks is not so good.

To download the material, you'll need to know the username and password; this is available from the EAB office, but only to students who have actually paid for the course, and course tutors.

To download a file, (in most browsers) right-click on a link then choose "Save Link As..." or "Save Target As...".

Gerda Malaperis - La Filmo (01:53 hours:min)

We do not have the distribution rights to put the film online for you. Sometimes people do post copies of the film on video-sharing sites, but we can't make any statements about the legitimacy or quality of those copies. When we last looked, we found these copies:

... but we can't be certain how long they will remain available / valid / working.

As we explain in the course introduction, in a few places the film's script has extended or cut scenes from the original story book, so while you're studying the text in the book we recommend that you listen to the audio CD recordings (above) and not the film's soundtrack. Once you have studied and understood the text, then you can watch the relevant part of the film to reinforce that understanding, by seeing the action while following the film's dialogue.
