Book Catalog

Editing of the content was completed a month or more ago, but we're waiting to send the catalog to the printer until ELNA's new publication, Bertil Wennergren's 700-page Plena Manlibro de Esperanta Gramatiko (more affectionately known as the PMEG arrives from the printer. In the meantime, here's a temporary on-line PDF copy of the contents of the new book catalog for you to peruse. The file, which is more than 100 "pages" long, is also about one megabyte.

Forto de la scienco

Ailanto's picture

Mi komprenas, diris iu, ke oni povis fari instrumentojn kaj esplori per ili la stelojn kaj planedojn, tio ĉi estas farebla; sed kiel la instruituloj sciiĝis pri la nomo de ĉiu stelo— tion ĉi mi jam neniel povas kompreni.

While I was working on the "Fundamenta Krestomatio" for Project Gutenberg, one of the things that struck me was how "modern" much of it seems. It's fun, though it seems a bit strange, though maybe it shouldn't, that people a century ago were enjoying the same sort of jokes and stories that we enjoy today. And in Esperanto!

Esperanto Slam: two entries

At the third Tut-teksasa Kongreso (TTK-3) we held a poetry slam.

Two of the entries have been recorded, and the mp3s of the entries of
Rob Read and Anderson Mills (the winner!) are now available.

Some Recommended Books for Beginners

Become an Activist

In Esperanto Sen Mitoj the author, Ziko Marcus Sikosek, distinguishes between "Esperanto speakers" and "Esperantists". If you're an Esperantist, then these pages are for you. These pages can help you find other people in your community who would love to learn Esperanto, if they only knew what it was and what they could do with it.

There is also a Handbook for Local Groups.

Here are some people who are willing to do public speaking on behalf of Esperanto.

Activism for Esperanto

This page is designed for people who are or want to be active about spreading Esperanto in the United States.

  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Informational materials
  • Jim Henry has written an excellent guide on hosting a convention: Kongreso Handbook

How to Find and Use a Local Esperanto Club

There are well over 50 local Esperanto Clubs in the United States. A completely list organized by state can be found at the ELNA website: Local Clubs. Local clubs allow the student of Esperanto to practice listening and speaking in friendly, realistic environments. In addition to being fun, one of the great benefits of a club for the beginner is the ability to learn for more experienced Esperanto speakers. Club activites range from lectures to formal study to informal chatting in both English and Esperanto. Esperanto speakers tend to be
highly educated and interesting people.

Esperanto is...

Esperanto is a language introduced in 1887 by Dr. L.L. Zamenhof after years of development. He proposed Esperanto as a second language that would allow people who speak different native languages to communicate, yet at the same time retain their own languages and cultural identities. Esperanto doesn't replace anyone's language but simply serves as a common second language. Esperanto can be learned in much less time than any other language. (Some say that it is four times easier). Esperanto is politically unbiased.
