  3. Pasis jam preskaŭ tri jaroj post kiam oni lastafoje kunvenis por celebri Esperanton, sed la Brita Kongreso baldaŭ revenos, okazonta ĉe la Conwy Business Centre en norda Kimrujo, en la urbo Conwy. La kongresejo troviĝas ĉirkaŭ 1,5 kilometrojn for de la trajnhaltejo Llandudno Junction, kaj gastigos nin de vendredo la 22-a ĝis dimanĉo la 24-a de aprilo 2022. Nia gastpreleganto estos Hans Becklin, usona esperantisto kaj, cetere, treege erudicia. Li ofte prelegas, recenzas, eseas, kaj tradukas por fekundigi la kulturon de Esperanto. Aldone, li estas konstanta instruisto de Nord-Amerika Somera Kursaro (NASK) kaj membro de la teamo, kiu nun prizorgas novan eldonon de Plena Ilustrita Vortaro de Esperanto. Laŭofice li estas estrarano de ESF, komitatano de UEA kaj TEJO, kaj tiel plu. Ekster Esperantujo, li estas pastro en pitoreska apudfiladelfia vilaĝo, edzo de Marinjo, kaj amanto de ĉio kultura. Ĉio ĉi, kaj li estas nur tridek-jara! Hans ne estos nia sola gastpreleganto! Ni tiel multe antaŭĝuis la prezentojn de Stela Besenyei-Merger ĉe nia nuligita kongreso en Lester', ke ni petis ŝin kunveni kun ni en Conwy! Ŝi kreskis en Esperantujo, estante denaska parolanto, kaj tial scias unu-du aferojn pri la gepatroj de denaskuloj jam de siaj propraj spertoj, kaj ankaŭ per la diversaj intervjuoj, kiujn ŝi gvidis kun aliaj similfonuloj. Iom el sia scioj ŝi dividos kun vi, klarigante pri la motivoj de gepatroj, kiuj elektis eduki infanojn kun Esperanto kiel unu el iliaj lingvoj. Krom Hans kaj Stela kiel ĉefgastoj estos kelkaj lokaj kontribuantoj, inkluzive de Mark Wootton, Maurizio Giacometto kaj Tim Owen. Kaj pro tio, ke ni luprenis la tutan kongresejon, vi ne estos devigataj partopreni sesion, kiu eventuale ne interesos vin: certe estos alia plaĉa elekto en alia ĉambro, inkluzive de diskutado, ludoj, kaj edukado. Ne longe for de la kongresejo troviĝas la hotelo Premier Inn, kaj la urbo Llandudno, ses kilometrojn for, ofertas multajn marbordajn loĝeblojn: atingu ĝin aŭte, buse (pluraj en la horo), aŭ trajne (kelkaj en la tago). Conwy, kun sia belega kastelo, troviĝas 1,5 kilometrojn piede de la kongresejo. Kiel kutime, ni proponos bufedon vendredon vespere: tio estos parto de la kotizo, kiu kostas £60. Antaŭ la pandemio, la kongresejo ofertis leĝerajn lunĉojn kontraŭ aldona pago, kaj indikas esperon denove fari tiel: ni kontaktos eventualajn aliĝintojn por sciigi ilin pri tio, se la kongresejo finfine konfirmos la eblon kaj prezojn. La kongreso fermiĝos la dimanĉan vesperon, kaj sekvos ĝin grupa manĝo en Conwy mem, por tiuj, kiuj ne tuj iros hejmen. Ĉi-foje ni ne proponos organizitan ekskurson en la lundo, ĉar nia rekomendo estas viziti Llandundon, marbordan urbon facile atingeblan aŭte, buse kaj trajne, kaj tial eblas atingi ĝin laŭ la propra horaro. Tiuj, kies kruroj sopiras etendiĝon povos grimpi sur la «Granda Orme», el kies pinto eblas vidi la insulon Man en klara tago, kaj oni havos la eblon viziti la minejon Great Orme. Ni rekomendos ankaŭ aliajn aktivaĵojn, kiuj povus interesi. Ni aldonos pliajn detalojn pri la programo de tempo al tempo al britakongreso.org. Eblas aliĝi ĉi tie: (Ĉu vi aĝas malpli ol 25 kaj kutime loĝas en Britujo? Povus esti, ke vi rajtas ricevi subvencion kontraŭ parto de viaj kotizo, veturado kaj tranoktado. Kontaktu nin por peti informojn.)
  4. It's been a long time since we were last able to meet together to celebrate Esperanto but after a three-year break, the British Esperanto Conference will be back, taking place from the Conwy Business Centre, around a mile away from Llandudno Junction, from Friday, April 22 until Sunday, April 24. Our guest speaker is Hans Becklin, an American Esperantist, and a particularly erudite one at that. He serves on the board of the Esperantic Studies Foundation, is a committee member of UEA and TEJO, contributes to the Plena Ilustrita Vortaro as part of the team revising it, and teaches at the Nord-Amerika Somera Kursaro. He’s also been nominated for the Akademio de Esperanto, and is a prolific contributor to Esperanto’s cultural output via his presentations, reviews, essays, and translations. And all that by the age of 30, folks! Hans won’t be our only guest speaker! We were looking forward so much to Stela Besenyei-Merger’s presentations at our cancelled conference in Leicester that we’ve asked her to join us in Conwy! Since she grew up with Esperanto as one of her native languages, she knows a thing or two about the parents of native speakers from her own experience, but also from the interviews she's conducted with other people with similar backgrounds. She’ll share some of that knowledge with you, explaining a little about the motivations of parents who bring their children up with Esperanto as a native language. And since she’s been around Esperanto since her birth, she’s experienced the whole range of offerings of the Esperanto calendar, playing key roles in organising some of them herself. She’ll give you some insight into what makes a successful event in a special workshop! Besides Hans and Stela as our main guests, there will be contributions on offer from some known British Esperantists too, including Mark Wootton, Maurizio Giacometto and Tim Owen. And we’ve rented the entire conference centre, meaning that if a particular session in the main room doesn’t appeal to you, there’s bound to be something elsewhere which does, including discussion groups, games, and educational sessions. Nearby accommodation comes in the form of a Premier Inn around a mile away from the venue, and Llandudno boasts a vast array of seaside accommodation. It's only four miles or so away and is served by several buses each hour, as well as a handful of trains during the day. Conwy, with its spectacular castle, is only a one-mile stroll away from the conference centre. As usual, a buffet will be available on the Friday evening, as will refreshments over the weekend, all of which are included in the £60 ticket price. Pre-pandemic the venue offered optional light lunches, and are hopeful that these will return: we’ll contact people who have already signed up to make them aware of the option, if so. The conference will formally close on the Sunday evening but we’ll follow it with an optional group meal in Conwy itself for people who won’t be heading straight home: it’s a short walk across a bridge to Conwy, and there are trains and taxis available for who have difficulty with mobility. This year, we’re not proposing an organised excursion on the Monday since our recommendation is to visit the seaside town of Llandudno, to which there are frequent buses and trains, meaning you can travel by your own timetable. Those with legs which yearn for some stretching can climb the Great Orme (you may see the Isle of Man if the weather is clear!), and you have the option of a visit to the Great Orme Mine. We’ll also recommend some other activities which you may wish to partake in. We’ll be adding more details as the programme takes shape on britakongreso.org. Sign up here: (Under-25 and normally resident in the UK? Contact us: we might be able to help you with some financial support towards your costs of participating.)
  5. Your ticket to enter the kongresejo and enjoy the programme. It also entitles you to a free buffet on the Friday evening and refreshments throughout the weekend.

    Please note that it doesn't include any meals or excursions, and that we don't offer a day or reduced rate.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT I'M WRITING IN ENGLISH, IN 'AMERICAN' (Sorry) (Smile): Oh, very, Very good. I lightly-studied E-O at San Francisco State University (stayed in Verducci Hall - with floors of 'bunheads'), for three Summers (in the middle/late'ish '80's). Never used it: no ability. The Esperanto League for North America - 'ELNA' - had a GREAT bookstore; miss it. Do appreciate these files. The Audio of JNM is available thru' the 'Internet Archive' - but those files are not easily DoWNloaded. I'm grateful for your work, here. The ATTACHed image - I'm on the top row, white-shirt, all-the-way to the right. My friend, Derek (sp?) - Polyglot, dark beard, mustache, dark-shirt - same row, about four people leftward. The girl that we both admired - middle of the bottom row, white-shirt: _Wonderful_ singing voice.). And a wonderful _program_, from ELNA, at SFSU - ELNA brought people in from Canada, from China, elsewhere ... Thanks for 'Jen Nia Mondo'.
  7. "Red roads of Auroville" in Esperanto. Written by Paweł Kowalczyk. Translated by Ewa Grochowska from the Polish.

    Since 2010 Paweł Kowalczyk has explored India, travelling, observing, discussing, reading... there he also met his wife, Sujatha.

    What is Auroville ("City of Dawn")? Is it an experimental eco-village in exotic surroundings? Is it an alternative to the future reality? Is it a utopian project, surviving thanks to state help and private donations? Is it perhaps a unique place of freedom and at the same time a source of inspiration for those who seek alternatives to the current domination of Big Capital and globalisation ?

    In 2010, Paweł Kowalczyk stayed for six months in Auroville as a volunteer, and returned there during his subsequent visits to India. By recounting his experiences and adventures he allows us to discover this unique place, to get to know its inhabitants and volunteers. He presents the operation of this commune, its history and its deep isolation. He shows us many bottom-up initiatives by big-hearted people, who dedicate their talents and savings to "The Idea".

    The author also describes the challenges of every-day life for the inhabitants of the Bharat state of Tamil Nadu (the nearest neighbours of Auroville) and their economic and social situations. These descriptions are enriched with personal considerations and interesting details about history, culture and beliefs. He tells of the struggle with bio-piracy and Big Capital, and explains (among other things) how Barat's rural poor have fallen into a spiral of debt and how the local cow is no longer sacred.

  13. "Handbook for teaching Esperanto" in Esperanto. Edited by Katalin Kováts. Contributions by Stefan MacGill, Birke Dockhorn and others. Illustrated by Max Elbo.

    To teach our language well and efficiently, our community needs trained teachers - with pedagogical and methodological knowledge and experience, informed about modern methods, aware of the the most up-to-date tools and aids - and who can organise their work, ether whether within the needs of the community or responding to the demands of institutional frameworks.

    This handbook, wholly in Esperanto, aims to guide and support such teachers.

    The content of this book can be consulted at edukado.net, enriched with clickable links and further material.

  21. We're delighted to announce that our latest publishing project is La plej eleganta giganto de la urbo, a translation by Ian Carter and Edmund Grimley Evans of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's The Smartest Giant in Town into Esperanto! We had hoped to launch the book at our conference in April. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has led to our cancelling the conference and to delays in the book reaching us. We can't currently be sure of the exact delivery date but we fulfill our pre-orders as soon as we take receipt of the stock. The book costs only £5. If you're from the UK, please note that you can include another 1.8kg of books in the package before the postage bracket rises (currently £3.10 for up to 2kg), so you might wish to take advantage by ordering some more books, which we'll despatch alongside it.
  22. "The Smartest Giant in Town" in Esperanto. Written by Julia Donaldson. Translated by Ian Carter and Edmund Grimley Evans from the English. Illustrated by Alex Scheffler.

    George wished he wasn’t the scruffiest giant in town.

    So when he sees a new shop selling giant-sized clothes, he decides it's time for a new look: smart trousers, smart shirt, stripy tie, shiny shoes. Now he’s the smartest giant in town . . . until he bumps into some animals who desperately need his help – and his clothes!
