Esperanto course #11

Thursday 28th April 2022, Esperanto course #11.

Esperanto was invented in 1887 by a Polish ophthalmologist named L.L. Zamenhof, who hoped his creation would help to bridge differences which stem from language barriers. Zamenhof saw a turbulent world divided by language, and he believed that the languages people already spoke were over saturated with history, politics, and power, making it impossible to communicate clearly. Esperanto was a fresh start, a technology that would allow its speakers to sidestep the difficulties of natural languages altogether.
He made it as easy to learn as possible, with no irregular verbs, a vocabulary adapted from Romance language roots, and a simple, genderless, almost caseless grammar.

As an exceptional case, we will watch together a documentary by Sam Green about the history of Esperanto, titled “The Universal Language”, i.e. the universal language.

More information in English: https://samgreen.to/the-universal-language-2/
Skilled Esperantists, newcomers and those interested are welcome!
The doors open at 6pm, but the lesson will start at 7pm.

An Introduction to the Esperanto Language, History and Community

[esperanto] [text in english]

Enkonduko al la Lingvo, Historio kaj Komunumo de Esperanto

Merkredo 10 novembro 2021, 19:00

Esperanto estis inventita en 1887 de pola okulkuracisto nomita L.L. Zamenhof, kiu esperis ke lia kreaĵo helpos transponti diferencojn kiuj devenas de lingvaj baroj. Zamenhof vidis turbulan mondon dividitan per lingvo, kaj li kredis, ke la lingvoj, kiujn homoj jam parolis, estas trosaturitaj de historio, politiko kaj potenco, kio malebligas klare komuniki. Esperanto estis nova komenco, teknologio kiu permesus al siaj parolantoj tute flanki la malfacilaĵojn de naturaj lingvoj.

Li ebligis ĝin kiel eble plej facile lernebla, sen neregulaj verboj, vortprovizo adaptita el latinlingvaj radikoj, kaj simpla, sengenra, preskaŭ senkasta gramatiko.

Venu por aŭdi kaj pri la historio de la lingvo, iom lernu, kio faciligas ĝin esti rapide lernenla, kaj malkovru kiel ĝi povus esti uzata por travojaĝi la mondon pere de la tutmonda Esperanto-komunumo (Esperantujo), kaj ankaŭ kiel vi povas partopreni en la movado (eĉ se vi ankoraŭ ne parolas esperanton).

Ĉeestos ankaŭ kelkaj lertaj esperantistoj ĉe la evento, do vi havos ŝancon aŭdi kiel fakte sonas Esperanta konversacio!

Ho, kaj ankaŭ estos iom da manĝaĵo 🙂 […Lees verder]
