ABOUT ESPERANTO ANTAŬEN
Esperanto Antaŭen (meaning Esperanto Forward) is a not for profit business based in Edmonton Alberta Canada aiming to professionally promote Esperanto.
Esperanto is a language different from most in that it was carefully planned to be as easy-as-possible to learn and introduced with the hope that it would be studied worldwide and become a common second language for the world. Esperanto was originally the invention of one man from the city of Białystok (today in Poland) who introduced it in the year 1887. Today the World Esperanto Association with headquarters in Rotterdam, Netherlands, has members in more than 100 countries and delegates in more than 800 cities.

ESPERANTO IN EDMONTON
Edmonton is the home city of Esperanto Antaŭen and it is in Edmonton that we are developing and testing approaches to promote and teach Esperanto. Edmonton is in the heart of English-speaking North America. Go 1000 kilometers in any direction and almost everyone you meet will speak English. If Esperanto can be successfully promoted in Edmonton, we think it can be successfully promoted in most of the rest of the world. More details of our Edmonton activities listed below can be found on the Courses and Events page of this website: Courses and Events
- 12-Lesson courses intended to turn complete beginners into fluent speakers,
- Tuesday Evening Esperanto drop in sessions at Edmonton Public Library branches, and
- Friends of Esperanto Restaurant events.
