Global Village Book

Esperanto Antaŭen published Sylvan Zaft’s book

All around the world men and women face the challenge of communication with people who speak a different language. Enormous sums are spent on foreign-language education and on interpreters and translators. Unfortunately translators frequently mistranslate and the vast majority of those who spend years studying a foreign language never reach the point where they are able to read a newspaper article or carry on a normal conversation as they can in their native tongue

In Esperanto: A Language for the Global Village, Sylvan Zaft discusses a proposed solution, a language which was planned to be learned in months instead of years. He discusses the features of Esperanto which make it much easier to learn than national languages, and he describes the rich international culture and literature that has been created by the relatively small but vibrant worldwide Esperanto-speaking community.
