Saluton from Radaro!
Hear ye. there are interesting developments in Esperantujo! Thankfully the organizers of the events listed below have adapted to current circumstances and will be switching to virtual platforms which we highly encourage all of you to check out. It’s good to know that the enthusiasm remains strong and as always, komencantoj are welcome! With a bit of perseverance, many will emerge from quarantine with the awesome skill of knowing Esperanto (and not blowing tea out of a pot as shown in the meme below).
Website of the Week
Website of the Week: Although the good Doctor Zamenhof made Esperanto to be phonetically straightforward, we all sometimes have a bit of trouble with spelling. Don’t feel bad for needing a little boost, here’s the ultra-useful Lingvohelpilo:
It’s the best Esperanto spelling and grammar checker on the internet.
Thanks to Felikso Gomez and Vlasta Celá for this week’s memes.
Update on NASK from Lee Miller:
“We are planning to offer an on-line alternative program, with the same teachers who would have been in Raleigh: Duncan Charters for the Advanced Class, Thomas Alexander for the Intermediate Class, and Hans Becklin for the Post-Beginner Class.
Lots of details remain to be worked out, but the format will likely be 1.5 hours a day of class via Zoom, for ten days. The cost for enrollment will be $75.00, and registration will be open to anyone, not just those who had registered for the course in Raleigh. We will probably plan on the original NASK dates, June 28-July 3, and the following week, July 6-10. That’s not definite, so don’t mark you calendar quite yet…
…We’ll be informing people about more details as soon as we know them.”
Update on the Landa Kongreso:
Currently, Esperanto-USA volunteers are working together to plan an online Landa Kongreso. More details coming soon. If you would like to volunteer on the LK Planning Committee (most planning and meetings in English to speed work and include komencantoj), please write Paige at paigedmiles(at)gmail.com or Charlotte at liquidfireangel(at)gmail.com

Venkaj Ĝardenoj Kontraŭ Kronviruso
Vermont: I asked Tony Harris for pictures of his Venka Ĝardeno. Tony shares a photographic tour.
Pri tiuj ĉi, Tony skribis, “La plantoj en nia hejma oficejo:”
“La plantoj en la fenestro de la lavejo:”
And finally, about this beautiful garden, “Kaj la plantoj en nia subetaĝo (kie estas brilaj lumtuboj):”
A video in Esperanto about gardening!
