Saluton from Radaro!

Staying in touch with the world of Esperanto has the wonderful side effect of making one appreciate the community that is Esperantujo. Whether it is the magazines aimed at informing readers, or the videos made by enthusiastic Esperantists, one always gets the sense that this is a living and thriving language (because it is!) This week’s meme takes a light-hearted jab at Ido, but it also reminds me of Esperanto’s longevity and its colorful history of ups and downs. Nevertheless, its vibrant community has somehow endured and we are all the inheritors of its ongoing legacy.
Indeed, compiling and proofreading Radaro may seem like a tiny part of Esperanto’s history, but we are happy to call it our contribution. Esperantujo and especially komencantoj, as always, this one is for you!

Website of the Week

Do you like to create an Esperanto immersion environment in your home? One of the things that has helped me to rapidly increase my level of comprehension (sometimes under stress and time deadlines) is setting my Ubuntu operating system to run in Esperanto. KDE is another operating system that has been translated into Esperanto. The Website of the Week is KDE Localization Esperanto Team’s page, which I discovered for myself earlier today. Please sign up, learn about Operating System Localization, and vastly improve your Esperanto computer vocabulary and knowledge of Linux systems.

Publication Announcement: Juna Amiko

This week Radaro would like to introduce yet another publication aimed at beginners: Juna Amiko! There is an emphasis on providing opportunities to practice Esperanto in Juna Amiko using (according to Esperanto USA) “puzzles, cartoons, easy reading, dialogues, short articles and pen-pal sections” that anyone can approach. Hyphens are also used to get one accustomed to reading longer compound words, thus aiding the learner in avoiding confusion. If you’re looking for something light-hearted and fun-centered, Juna Amiko gets an easy recommendation from Radaro!

You can subscribe for print editions of this quarterly publication through Esperanto USA: https://retbutiko.esperanto-usa.org/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=18330

You can also find an archive of past Juna Amiko editions here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BzwNAUd5dSKCbHZ3QUU1QzdqSE0
