Saluton from Radaro!

We hope all of you readers have had a marvelous weekend and are ready for some more content and news. Definitely be sure to check out the registration form for the Landa Kongreso presentations since it could be worthwhile to introduce other Esperantists to something unique and novel about you! Of course, we also hope that the other posts will keep you engaged in Esperantujo and aware of the community. Stay rad, everyone!

Book recommendation for beginners and anyone wanting to improve reading fluency.

Diving into a language is sometimes intimidating and frustrating, even after spending a lot of time with a platform like Duolingo. You confidently walk away from a beginner’s course knowing the simple rules of Esperanto, but the minute you try to read actual literature you find yourself hitting a brick wall. The solution to this is graded extensive reading that will allow you assimilate the language naturally so that you don’t rely on mental translation and simply understand the language as it is.

The link I’ve posted will take you to a book entitled Privilegia Vojo al Lingvoscio: Esperanto. What is really neat about this book is that it is entirely in Esperanto, yes, even the grammatical explanations! New vocab is found in the margins of the pages along with illustrations that will help you gain an intuitive feel for the language. Don’t worry too much about difficulty either because the book starts out with very easy sentences and gradually builds in complexity so that you are always keeping up. Take a look and see if it’s for you!

Ni plantis novajn arbojn apud la arbaron. Ankaŭ ni alaskanoj salutas la unuajn florojn de printempo. Ĉu vi scias ke oni povas manĝi leontodojn? Ili estas mia plej ŝatata floro. Mi amegas leontodojn, ĉar ili estas donemaj. Ili donas iliajn foliojn por manĝaĵo por homoj kaj bestoj. Homoj povas fari teon el la radikoj kaj vinon el la floroj. Aldone, oni diras al infanoj en usono, ke se ili blovas ĉiujn semojn el la leontodoj nutrante deziron en ilia koro, la deziro plenumiĝos. Mi ne certas pri tio, sed la flava koloro estas bela post la maro de neĝo.

We planted new trees beside the forest. We greeted the first spring flowers. Did you know you can eat dandelions? They’re my favorite flower. I love them because they’re so generous. They give their leaves as food, their roots for tea, and one can make a wine from their flowers. One also says to children in the United States, that if they make a wish and blow all the seeds from the head of a dandelion, it will come true. I’m not sure about that, but their yellow color looks beautiful after the sea of snow.
