The purpose of this site is to provide information on the
international language Ido. Ido is a reformed and improved version of the
constructed language Esperanto, the late 19th Century brainchild of
Polish amateur linguist Dr. L.L. Zamenhof. Ido was the product of the
Delegation for the Adoption of an International Auxiliary Language, which
met in Paris in 1907 to decide on an international language to allow
easier communication between the peoples of the world. In a world of over
7500 languages, the need for an easily acquirable international tongue is
self-evident. Esperanto, it was felt, was unsatisfactory for this purpose,
and so the Delegation recommended the revisions which led to the
development of Ido.
On this page you will find a history of the language Ido, a first course
in two stages to get you started, and at the end of stage 2 you will find
out how to progress your Ido skills even further. I hope you enjoy this
brief look at the first international language ever to be founded on
thorough scientific study.
