Always wanted to learn Esperanto but were afraid to make the jump? Interested to know what Esperanto culture is actually like? Tired of telling Duolingo for the millionth time that the orange dogs eat rice?
Then this course is for you! Ariel Bonkorpa, the president of Young British Esperantists, is an experienced language teacher and long-time Esperanto speaker. She has written blogs, short stories, and erotic poetry in the language, and has given talks and classes at Esperanto events from Slovakia to Japan.
The main goal of the classes is to be fun. Ariel’s teaching style is based on contemporary research into language learning, based around the concepts of comprehensible input (basically, understanding what the teaching is saying) and a lively classroom atmosphere. So be prepared to talk, laugh, tell stories, and have an all around good time! Unlike the language classes you dreaded at school, there will be no tedious grammar drills or long asides in English here.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up below and get to know the world’s most intriguing language!
