Learn Lojban: new methods
The Complete Lojban Language
Note that the book The Complete Lojban Language is still considered by quite a few new learners as the best tutorial although by design this wasn't meant to be any tutorial.
Namely, the order of chapters may seem to be arbitrary to those who wish to use this book to study Lojban. So one recommendation is ... to read various sections from the book randomly. If you don't understand something skip to another part.
If you still wish to try something else here are some newish tutorials.
The Crash Course is a course being written by la gleki by combining the feedback of people learning or speaking Lojban into a tutorial. You read it, report bugs or ask questions and get replies from the author or knowledgable Lojbanists, answers to your questions get included into the course.
- The course tries not to use Lojbanic terminology much. It explains most Lojbanic terms in ordinary language that the learner uses from birth or school. This principle brings Lojban to people, rather than dragging people into Lojban. It adapts the teaching method to the language the student uses in everyday life. For example, for speakers of English (and most languages of Europe) The Crash Course method calls brivla "verbs", calls sumti "nouns". Although, such terms as "noun" and "verb" can mean different things in different languages they are fine for initially explaining how Lojban works.
- The course has a compact dictionary as an addendum that gives examples for the most commonly used verbs and particles.
The intended finalization of this course are years 2017 - 2019. Until then minor bugs can be found in it but the course is mostly already usable.
A distilled overview of the language by ldlework, explaining much of the grammar succinctly using examples and diagrams.
