Our mission is to provide comparisons and recommendations for foreign language learners, so they do not waste any unncessary time on poor learning products and overpriced solutions.

So, how do we make money? Our partners compensate us, at no additional cost to the learner.

AFP 77 – EvilDea (Richard Delamore): Esperanto

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

Today I'm joined by the Esperanto Youtuber EvilDea, aka Richard Delamore to talk about his experience with Esperanto and how the recent release of Esperanto Duolingo is changing the Esperanto landscape.


Every season I try to bring some attention to Esperanto. Primarily because I'm a fan of the language, particularly when it comes to aiding future language learning but also to highlight the social benefits you can gain by learning this plan language.

Evildea aka Richard Delamore is an Esperanto Youtuber and he produces a ton of videos in Esperanto. On top of that he is also involved with Esperanto TV and local Esperanto events in his home town Sidney, Australia.
