Courses and Events

For those interested in becoming fluent in Esperanto with the help of a teacher in a classroom setting, we are offering Esperanto in 12 lessons. Call 780-904-0363 for course schedules.

Most Tuesday evenings, we invite interested people to join us for an opportunity to learn and practice Esperanto. We meet at different venues throughout Edmonton. Call 780-904-0363 for the location of upcoming meetings.

Usually once per month Friends of Esperanto get together at an Edmonton Restaurant to enjoy food from around the world and meet others who like the idea of Esperanto (upcoming event details below).

 

ESPERANTO IN 12 LESSONS

The vast majority of people who try learning a second language don’t become fluent for years and rarely become fluent at all without an extended period of immersion – unless they are learning Esperanto. Esperanto can be learned in weeks instead of years; and the vast majority of the world’s Esperanto speakers, became fluent without any immersion at all. We invite those interested in learning with the help of a teacher in a classroom setting to register for an upcoming course.

The courses aims to make fluent speakers from complete beginners in only twelve lessons. Very few in the world, and none of the currently active group of fluent Esperanto speakers in Edmonton, have had more than ten lessons of formal instruction. To better understand how this is possible visit the “WHAT MAKES IT SO EASY?” section of the “More about Esperanto” page of this website.

You are invited to attend a Tuesday Evening Esperanto drop in event for a FREE First Lesson and to learn 20% of the vocabulary items required for fluency !

 

TUESDAY EVENING ESPERANTO

Most Tuesday evenings, we offer an opportunity for interested people to learn and practice Esperanto. In one evening complete beginners can hope to learn about 20% of our basic list of morphemes accounting for 95% of spoken Esperanto. To find out the location of next Tuesday’s event please call 780-904-0363.
