The Complete Lojban Language

la xunre cukta

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.
