There are fifteen lessons involved, intended to cover enough of the basics of Lojban that one can read most Lojban one is likely to encounter orally or on-line.

The lessons are basically complete, and have been reviewed extensively; things remaining to be done include:

  1. (Possibly) inserting reading material for the later lessons.
  2. Introduce IPA pronunciation guides in a note to Chapter 1, and 'major language' alternatives in the pronunciation guide proper now. Scott Weller has proposed the 6 languages of the gismu etymologies (this has already been done for the Level 0 Booklet, as requested by Olivier Nisole).
