Saluton from Radaro!

Whether you have been following Radaro for some time or this is your first edition, you will notice that we enjoy shining the spotlight on the accomplishments of Esperantists. This week is no different since we acknowledge the fact that more people than ever can learn Esperanto on duolingo! Additionally, we celebrate the continued efforts of Edukado, ILEI and the success of Alex Miller as a content creator. We hope some of you will look into the art and writing contests linked below and shine in your own unique ways as Esperantists. Of course, please enjoy the memes and humorous videos while you are it!

News Articles

When asking Google if there are other Esperanto speakers in the Anchorage area, it returned this lovely article about the 264th Esperantist, who lived in Fairbanks and could read and write 200 languages:
