Esperanto is used exclusively throughout the video; individual teachers will decide how much explanation to permit in the national language. The direct method -- exclusive use of the target language -- means the learner is exposed from the outset to Esperanto as it is spoken throughout the world. To this end the actors in Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo are drawn from various language backgrounds: Chinese, Croatian, Danish, English, Japanese, Spanish and others.
Grammatical points are reinforced via a range of imaginative exercises intended to underpin the new elements introduced in the video. It is recommended that the learner not proceed to a subsequent lesson without completing and mastering all the material in a previous lesson.
Main points of grammar covered in each lesson include:
Lesson 1: Nouns (singular/plural); adjectives; -as
Lesson 2: -is, -os; pronouns; adjectives (plural)
Lesson 3: -u; mal-; plaĉas, mankas al . . .
Lesson 4: accusative; Esperanto word-formation
Lesson 5: reiteration of accusative; flexibility of Esperanto
Lesson 6: modals; por + infinitive
Lesson 7: motion (kie/kien)
Lesson 8: comparison; nominative after taksi, opinii, etc.
Lesson 9: indirect speech; -i
Lesson 10: relative pronouns; reflexives
Lesson 11: -us, se and the conditional
Lesson 12: voli ke + u Lesson 13: ig
Lesson 14: participles
Lesson 15: general review
Suffixes, prefixes and "korelativoj" are introduced steadily throughout the course and the vast majority will have been covered by the end.
