Introduction to Esperanto: 34

Great! If you knew how to make that sentence, that means you must have known quite a bit of Esperanto already. Finally, it’s useful to know this word:

Esperanto for to be doing or to be feeling is farti.

You use this usually to ask people how they are. You could associate that word with farewell which could mean fartu well or do well.

Use the word kiel (which means how) and say literally how you are doing?. Also, try to answer that question:

  1. Remember that "fartas" means "to be doing" already, thus you will not need the word for "to be" in that sentence.
  2. Do you still remember that "I" is "mi"? Also be careful not to miss the word "very".
  3. Apply the present tense "as" ending to the word "havi", and also mark objectivity on the word "ĝi" by adding an "n". 
  4. Remember to mark objectivity on the word "tio". Also use the appropriate present "as" and "i" endings.
  5. Did you remember to mark objectivity on the word "kio"?
  6. Yes, add an "n" to "Esperanto" to mark objectivity.
  7. Use the present tense "as" form of the word "lerni" ("to learn").
  8. Use the present tense "as" form of the word "studi" and also mark objectivity where appropriate.
  9. Do NOT mark objectivity on this one. See the next lesson for why.
  10. Use a form of the word "ĝi".
  11. Remember the word for "labour".
  12. Don't forget to mark objectivity on the word "saluto"!
  13. We are using it not as a greeting but just describing a day, thus do not mark objectivity on this on. Also, remember that "good" is "bona".
  14. Remember that the word for "to say" is "diri" and use it in the right form. Also don't forget to add the objectivity marker on BOTH the adjective and the noun.
  15. Now do mark objectivity on this one. Remember that you need to mark it on both words.
  16. No need for quotation marks or anything. Also remember to mark objectivity.
  17. This will be just one word, objectivity marked.
  18. Remember that it's similar to the word "salute".
  19. Literally "how you are-doing?"
  20. Use the word "kaj" for "and". Rememeber that "well" is an adverb and will therefore need the "e" ending.
  21. Remember that "badly" is the opposite of "well", so you will be needing to add "mal" somewhere.
  22. Mark objectivity on the word "kio".
  23. "History" is "historio". Mark objectivity on it too.
  24. Literally "where from you are?"
  25. "France" was "Francujo".
  26. Remember the "an" suffix for group members, and also mark objectivity in the second sentence.
  27. Use "kio" as your k-uestion word, and "via" as the word for "your".
  28. Use a form of "study", and also mark objectivity in the second sentence.
