Saluton from the Radaro Report! Inside: Dates for NASK 2020 and lots of new videos.
Website of the Week
Check out the UEA website on Esperanto in English and many other languages. http://esperanto.net/en/
There weren’t a ton of new articles directly related to the Esperanto Community in North America this week. So here’s a few interesting old articles:
From verkoj, here’s a link to the English page of information for why to learn Esperanto: http://verkoj.com/esperanto/what-is-esperanto/ Please share it with your friends and family.
Here’s the link again to where Esperanto-USA uploaded 100 years of old Esperantisto magazines under its many names: http://esperanto-usa.org/bulteno/arhxivo/eo It’s a historical treasure.
Also, while not directly related to North America, https://uea.facila.org came out with some very interesting new articles. All are in simple Esperanto, accompanied by a recording read outloud by volunteers. One is about a touch-museum in Italy, with exact replicas of scultures and historical buildings, that blind people can touch and enjoy. Their website is in Esperanto, English, and Italian. Another recent article was about UEA’s new instagram account. As a Radaro editor, I love reading out loud along with the recording. It’s a great way to get more comfortable speaking Esperanto.

We don’t yet know costs as the contract with William Peace University hasn’t been finalized. We’ll get that information out as soon as possible. But now is a good time to mark your calendar, if you think you might be interested in attending.
Because the course is 5 days rather than 8, we’ll likely schedule some additional instructional time during the afternoons. Possibly short seminars on specific topics, conversation groups, small group work sessions, etc.

Conversational Esperanto, The International Language, is a class, and discussion group, that is open to Stanford students AND the general public. We meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the International Center on the Stanford University campus during the academic year (minus the usual holidays and breaks). This class is free if taken for no credit. Stanford students who would like to take the course for 2 credits per quarter may do so by jumping through many administrative hoops (please ask if you are serious). Students taking the class for credit must come to classes (of course) but everyone else is free to drop-in at any time. You can join the class any time during the year, but please contact me, via email (stanford@Esperanto.org) first, so i can schedule a time for you to experience my “Lesson Zero”!
