Class notes, Mar 2


We reviewed 0-10: nul, unu, du, tri, kvar, kvin ses, sep, ok, naŭ, dek

and learned how to count up to 1000: dek unu (11) … dek naŭ (19), dudek (20), dudek unu (21) … naŭdek naŭ (99), cent (100) … ducent (200) … tricent (300) … naŭcent naŭdek naŭ (999), mil (1000)


We covered some of the grammar in chapter 4 of the text and went over some of the solutions for chapter 3.

Among other things, chapter 4 introduces the correlatives kiel (how, in what manner) and tiel (that way, in that manner), and the word ĉi, used to indicate proximity in constructions like ĉi tio or tio ĉi (this thing).

Mazi en Gondolando

We watched more of Mazi en Gondolando, which also introduces ĉi, numbers from 1–20, and the imperative verb ending -u:
