About

Mondlango is an international auxiliary language, or interlanguage and is used for communication between people from different nations who do not speak the same native language. An auxiliary language is a common second language and is not intended to replace national languages. For a full description of auxiliary languages see the Wikipedia Article.

There have been many attempts to create and promote auxiliary languages. Mondlango is, in my opinion, the best of the bunch. Created in 2002 by He Yafu, it is based on Esperanto which was popular in the early 20th century. Esperanto was good but had a few serious problems. He Yafu and his team have addressed these issues brilliantly and bequeathed to us a language that is simple, flexible and elegant.

There is a great deal of argument about whether or not the world needs an auxiliary language. This site will have nothing to add to this argument, which I'm sure will run and run. Mondlango is, quite simply, lots of fun. And it may turn out to be very useful.

I started to program this site as an aid to creating a content management system for educational websites. I earn my living as a programmer. But I am enjoying Mondlano and might have got a little carried away.

The lessons on this site are based on the course available at the official Mondlango website mondlango.com and are presented here specifically for English speaking people.

If the site does not display properly you are probably using an older version of Internet Explorer. Tut tut. You should really consider downloading FireFox or Chrome. Both are free!

My apologies if I am not permitted to use the emblem of the united nations. I have looked at a selection of Mondlango flags/emblems on the internet and found them all wanting. I'll keep my eyes open but in the meantime the emblem of united nations seems entirely apropriate.
