Once again we’ll be offering our yearly beginner’s course in the Hylan building starting in late January. The goal is to help you acquire basic communications skills so you can start using the language right away.
All are welcome. This is a free, non-credit course. The only costs will be for the textbook and a dictionary, about $15 total. To sign up, just send a message to esperanto ĉe lodestone punkto org saying you’re interested, and we’ll get back to you when all the details (times, room number, etc.) are set.
This is the fourth time we’ve offered the course in the Spring semester, and our track record is pretty good so far: our students have received five scholarships to study at NASK, the prestigious North American Summer Esperanto Institute held each summer at at UC San Diego. Several so far have gone on to earn certification at the Council of Europe’s C1 level, and have even incorporated Esperanto into their formal studies here at UR!
