Example of use of the program
You have to complete the following sentence. The word to find is under the blinking black rectangle.
Type LZ or press the buttons L and Z if you do not have a physical keyboard.

The First Book was written by  [Ludwig ][Zamenhof] on July 26, 1887 in Russian, and then in French, English, German and Polish.


Description of the page The first line shows a set of buttons:
Show 1, Show, Wrong, etc...

I explain their use in the Help (press the button above). You can use the program without those buttons, but they helpful on some occasions.

Under the set of buttons, you see the keyboard. This keyboard is used on tablets, which do not have a physical keyboard. If you have the physical keyboard, it is more comfortable to use it than the on-screen keyboard.


I advise you to press on the spacebar as soon as you realize that you can't answer.
Normally, at the third or fourth time, you will remember better.

### If you make a mistake, take a look at what you typed and what you had to type in the [red window].

### Now wait some time (more than ten seconds) before you answer ...
... and listen.
Did you hear the beep beep ?

This happens when the time limit for responding is exhausted. The question is handled as "not known".
The program will reshow the same question a little while later.

Reply C to [continue.

 It doesn't pay to sit in front of the screen for minutes, trying to memorize the sentence. This is a waste of time.
The purpose of the program is just aimed at that: to help you reminding things without too much of a headache.

In the real lessons, only repeat once in aloud, without looking at the screen, and continue.]

### Many computers do not have a keyboard to enter accented letters, such as ĉ ĝ ĥ ĵ ŝ ŭ
You can use the on-screen keyboard, or if you have a physical keyboard, type a 5 in front of the letter c, g, h, j, s

For example: Enter now 5c to enter [ĉ] or press the button Ĉ, if you do not have a physical keyboard.

So the program will work even if you do not have a keyboard tailored to the taught language, what is the most common situation.

### In some cases, I had to deal with a null response.
If no character is present, press the ENTER key or the button

My father had fo[]rty sheep[].

### You can very easily create your own lessons.
I use this for my grandchildren.
The first version of this program was written in 1982.


Now some more examples of use:

The First Book (which contains the Foundation) is the [first] document written by Zamenhof. It describes the language "Esperanto".

### The First Book was published on [July ][2][6, ][1][8][8][7] in Russian, and then in French, English, German and Polish. 

Even if Esperanto considerably evolved since 1887, this document is considered the only [obligatory ][authority] over Esperanto and is thus [un][changeable].

### You should be able to find out what are the [grammar ][rules]. This is the most natural way to learn a language, or did you learn English with a grammar book?

### If you can not figure out a rule, just write a note to yourself and come back to  the lesson in a few days later.

If you do not find a satisfactory explanation by yourself, send a message to the newsgroup soc.culture.Esperanto in English.


You should have somebody check your pronunciation, but [not] by a native English speaker.

Be careful not to take bad habits. Use your ears more than you eyes.

### At the end of the lesson, [mix] the sentences, and redo the the lesson.
I recommend to do this as soon as possible, and once a week for 4 weeks.
