''The Crash Course'' is a course being written by [[User:Gleki|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 [[The Crash Course: Dictionary|dictionary]] as an addendum that gives examples for the most commonly used verbs and particles.

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.
