About us

Who are we?

We’re an informal group of UR students, alumni, and staff interested in learning and using Esperanto. We welcome anyone from UR or the greater Rochester community who’s interested in languages, travel, linguistic/cultural diversity and world literature.

What do we do?

We offer a beginners’ course on UR’s River Campus each year. It’s free, and all are welcome.
Conversation tables
We hold meetings to help beginning and progressing students practice in a casual, supportive atmosphere. Whether you want to chat, play Skrablo, or just drop by to hear what the language sounds like, feel free to join us.
Field trips
Occasionally we’ll organize excursions to regional events like the Aŭtuna Renkontiĝo de Esperanto, or (on rare occasions) we’ll provide a tour of Rochester to an overseas visitor from the Pasporta Servo.

We also offer a mailing list (which tends to be more reliable than Facebook) with the same information.
