I started learning Ido because of these reasons:

  1. Simply because I am interested in conlangs.

  2. Ido is relatively easy. I’m not sure if it’s easier than Esperanto or not; but it wouldn’t cause much trouble even for monolinguals.

  3. In order to be able to discuss about Ido, I started learning it. I myself saw posts and comments of Esperantists with negative attitude towards Ido. I know this is not a general attitude of Esperantists, but I was upset then, honestly.

  4. The proposals and improvements actually work beautifully. I’m not judging whether Ido or Esperanto is better, though.

  5. Ido speakers are very nice, in my opinion.

  6. I like the flag of Ido. I think the flag of Esperanto is beautiful too; but here’s my personal story: Many of my friends hate Esperanto “at first glance” because of the flag. However, they have a very neutral attitude towards the flag of Ido. (they are not interested in conlangs, by the way.) Those are very personal reasons for learning Ido. But I would like to add one last reason:

  7. Learning Ido has brought me joy and excitement. It’s definitely worth my time and effort. I hope anyone will have the same experience! Warmest greetings to all those who are interested in learning Ido!
