On January 11th they invited Esperanto-speaker Rob Blow to talk on Esperanto. During the four-hour meeting, Rob gave two lectures: the first about Esperanto as a language, a movement and a history; the second about the workers' Esperanto movement. During thye final hour, Rob also gave a beginner's lesson entirely in Esperanto, to introduce participants to the language.
"As a result" reported Rob "a new group of people in Leicester now know not only about Esperanto but also about SAT (Sennacia Ascocio Tutmonda - the World Non-nationalist Association, an independent worldwide cultural Esperanto association of a general left-wing orientation) and its forthcoming congress in Dinan, France. Several students expressed an intention to continue studying the language, and perhaps set up a new local group."
