Esperanto-USA to hold Landa Kongreso in Montreal in 2020!

by: filipo (Phil Dorcas) president, Esperanto-USA (

Esperanto-USA,  which normally meets in its annual conference (Landa Kongreso) in the USA, will profit from the proximity of the World Esperanto Conference (Universala Kongreso) in Montreal, August 1 – 8, 2020.

This is a rare opportunity for Esperanto speakers of all levels to be among other Esperanto speakers from all over the world!  Plan now to attend.

The planning team from Esperanto-USA is working with the team from Canada and with the team from the World Esperanto Association (UEA) to provide for us a grand event, which for many will be the chance of a lifetime.

Here is a picture of some of the planning team in Canada, together with Duncan Charters from the United States, who is the current president of UEA!

Esperanto-USA will hold its “Landa Kongreso” (LK) during sessions at the “Universala Kongreso” (UK).  We will be holding our business meetings, inviting non-members to attend, and announcing the results of our annual election of officers.

There was a post on Facebook from Lee Miller about Nask 2020: 

NASK 2020

The dates for NASK 2020 will be as follow:
Saturday, June 27: Arrival of team
Sunday, June 28: Arrival of students
Monday, June 29-Friday, July 3: Classes
Saturday, July 4: Departure

3 levels:
Advanced: History of Esperanto, Duncan Charters
Intermediate Esperanto, Thomas Alexander

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.

“From 1st to the 8th of August, Montreal will host, for the first time ever, the World Esperanto Congress (Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel, 1201 René-Lévesque Blvd W, Montreal, QC H3B 2L7)” for more information, please visit:
