Saluton from Radaro. This week Esperantists wrote about resources, made a lot of art, and all of us remember China in our hearts.

Website of the Week – F-Droid

By Chloe Everhart 

F-droid is a Free and Open Source app store for android platforms. 

To download the F-droid app store, go to https://f-droid.org from a browser on your mobile device and click, “download F-droid”

F-droid currently offers two dictionary apps in Esperanto, PreVo and Senreta Vortaro. You can see them at: 

https://search.f-droid.org/?q=esperanto&lang=en

I’m hoping sharing F-droid as the site of the week will encourage more Esperantist programmers to offer their apps through F-droid.

Letters

Passed on by Humphrey Tokin. Sad news from China:

Karaj komitatanoj,

En lastaj tagoj, ni ricevis multajn mesaghojn el diversaj landoj por esprimi ilian konsolon al la china popolo, nun mi raportas la situacion:

Nun en Chinio ghis la 1-a de februaro estas 11890 homoj infektitaj de pneuhmonio kauzita de la nova koronari-viruso, kaj nun la lando rapidigas la esploron de vakcio, por limigi la epidemion la registaro longigis la feriojn por ke chinoj restu hejme. 

Ghis nun neniu chinaj esperantistoj kaj iliaj parencoj estas infektitaj. 

Dankon por via atento kaj bondeziro! Sanon kaj ghojon al vi!

amike via,

English Translation:

Dear Committee Members,

In last days, we received many messages from different countries to express their consolation to the Chinese people, now I report the situation: 

Now in China, until the 1st of February, 11,890 people are infected from pneumonia caused by the new Corona Virus, and now the country is making rapidly the exploration of a vaccine, to make limited the epidemic, the Chinese government lengthened the vacation that the Chinese remain home.

Until now, no Chinese Esperantists & family members are infected.

Thank you for your attention and good wishes. Health and joy to you.

Friendly yours,

Meme Magic

Dankon al Marc Konijnenberg!

Publication Announcement

If you are student of Esperanto who has recently finished a basic course such as Duolingo or Lernu and want to get your feet wet in reading Esperanto, but not necessarily about Esperanto, then consider checking out Kontakto! As a reader of Kontakto you will have access to articles on a variety of topics from sports, science, and social issues. The best part of Kontakto is that it is accessible for those with relatively little experience in Esperanto, making it an ideal practice tool and entry point into Esperantujo.

One of the coolest things about Esperanto has always been the colorful and varied backgrounds of its speakers. Since Kontakto is a TEJO publication (and by extension, UEA), you can be sure that multiple viewpoints from the wonderful Esperanto family are shared! For nearly six decades Kontakto has supplied the Esperanto youth with a wealth of relevant and current material. Come take a look, subscribe, and perhaps contribute to Kontakto’s long-running legacy!
