EAB News 2009-10-23: October sessions at Barlaston

Fully-subscribed October sessions at Barlaston

Fluent Esperanto speakers attended a discussion group session (titled Drondo - Diskuta Rondo), conducted entirely in Esperanto, held at Wedgwood Memorial College, Barlaston from October 23rd to 25th. The session was fully-subscribed. The Raymond Williams Foundation offered some additional funding to Drondo students to assist with accommodation costs.

The beginners' course "Course You Can" was also held at Barlaston over the same weekend and was also fully-subscribed. Participants in both sessions enjoyed an Esperanto atmosphere which spilled out into the communal mealtimes, coffee breaks and evening activities.

The next Drondo session is on 2010-Jan-15 to 17, when (for the first time) a parallel Drondido discussion session will be held for less-proficient Esperanto speakers. The next Course-You-Can course is on 2010-Oct-22 to 24. For more details of all those events, see the EAB Events webpage.
