Warm greetings to all newcomers of Esperantujo
We imagine that you all welcomed our new friend Quintyn as enthusiastically as we did. He did an excellent job last week and continues to put forth a solid effort to supply you all with helpful content. As always, there are new goods, resources, and news, so we hope you make the best of them and keep climbing to higher levels.
We wish you all a very happy week!
Website of the Week
Parol – Text-to-Speech generator for Esperanto. Created by Martin Rue
Enter Esperanto text and hear how it sounds. Not perfect, but good!
You can’t just invent your own language that persists for over a hundred years… can you?
Perhaps you’d like to step out of a solitary study session and turn the study of Esperanto into a fun group activity. If so, then check out this website for an Esperanto-based board game called Frazludo. Further details on the rules of the game can be found here:
Esperanta Medicina Vortaro
This is one of those resources that seems really niche but pretty useful at the same time. Think about it, if you ever get hurt in an environment where the only common language is Esperanto it would come in handy to accurately describe your injuries, right? At the very least you’ll know a bunch of words not commonly taught in basic courses. Indeed, hoarding Esperanto vocabulary is a good enough reason, so why not? Published by the Universala Medicina Esperanto Asocio, you know it’s going to be quite legit.
“Esperanto: The Living, Changing, Conlang Community” is a well-written article (in English) by Gian Pablo Antonetti which discusses the history, present state, and future of the Esperanto community. He interviews Stela Besenyei-Merger, who features in one of our highlighted videos this week as a native Esperanto speaker.
