  3. "Translate! English-Esperanto translation exercises". Compiled by William Auld.

    56 translation tasks (which originally appeared in past issues of La Brita Esperantisto). The first part presents the texts in English for you to try translating, the second part has extensive comments about the translation challenges and pitfalls of particular expressions, and a "model" translation - sometimes by Auld himself, but more often compiled from the translations submitted by readers. An index of relevant words and discussion points is included at the back.

    This is an excellent book to hone translation skills.

  4. "Camping days -  workbook three" in Esperanto. Written by Stefan MacGill. Illustrated by pavel Rak.

    This workbook series uses an immersion approach to language study, and is primarily designed for group use with younger students. Because of its target-language approach (it's written in Esperanto), its particularly suitable for use with students from different language backgrounds. Aligned to the structure of Esperanto, it concentrates on verbs a lot.

    The basic scenario is a group of young people of various nationalities at an Esperanto camp. They are inventive and lively people - through their ideas, games and creations, the students meet many interesting people and animals: a cracker-loving bear, a courageous circus juggler, the most incompetent witch in the world, and our own Esperanto hero and spy 005.

    This is workbook three in a series of three. Unfortunately workbook one is out of print and not currently available.

  10. Written by Nicole Else. Illustrated by Lilli Giloteaux.

    A book about languages, in English, aimed towards children and young adults. Previous editions were titled “Mummy, why can't we all speak the same language?” - but the book isn't actually aimed at very young children.

    It mentions lots of different languages: Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Russian, etc. On the left-hand pages there is text, and on the right-hand pages there are quiz questions with multiple choice answers.

    The book is divided into 15 short parts:

    • Languages of the world
    • Similarities between languages
    • How languages differ: by their grammar
    • How languages differ: by their alphabet
    • Chinese writing
    • Japanese writing
    • Writing numbers in different languages
    • Different ways of writing English: Braille, Morse, shorthand Phonetic and simplified English spelling
    • Languages in Australia
    • Why is translating so hard?
    • The need for a common language
    • Why can't everyone learn English?
    • What is Esperanto?
    • Why is Esperanto easier to learn?

  11. "Misdirectors - words which make our language difficult" in Esperanto. Written by Przemysław Wierzbowski.

    Learn about the most “complicated” Esperanto words whose meanings can be confusing for beginners. Useful for anyone who wants to master the language fully.

    In Esperanto, what is roso? And what is rozo? Which of the two is the flower?

    When two words are similar, it's important to understand the difference if you're to use them correctly. Words can be confused because they have the same sound (humoro, humuro), or because of their origin and similarity to words in national languages (salato, laktuko). All the words in Konfuziloj have clear illustrations and definitions based mainly on Plena Ilustrita Vortaro [the authoritiative "Complete Illustrated Dictionary"].

    What's the difference between vespero and vesperto? Or between deserto and dezerto? Or even between ‘taso da teo’ and  ‘taso de teo’?

    You will know the difference, after reading Konfuziloj!

  12. Did you know that Amazon runs a system by which it will transfer a small percentage of the price of eligible products to a charity of your choice? That scheme is called Amazon Smile, and EAB is one of the charity's you can select. To make use of the service, be sure to use the Amazon Smile site rather than the standard Amazon one: smile.amazon.co.uk Everything about the site is the same as the normal one except the name. Once you're there and are logged in, you will be asked to select your charity. We're easy enough to track down: And then you shop as normal. That's all you have to do: the rest is automatic. Hovering on the AmazonSmile item in your user bar will show you which charity you've nominated, and what you've raised so far. It's also available within the app! So it's really straightforward. The only challenge is remembering to shop at Amazon Smile instead of the usual location. You just have to get used to typing 'sm' and letting your browser remember the rest!
  13. "Knead me missus!" in Esperanto. Written by Renato Corsetti and others.

    Taboo and insulting expressions in Esperanto.

    The booklet comprises 9 main parts: insults, swear-words, euphemisms, interjections, onomatopoeias, forbidden words, metaphors, slang, examples of compound expressions.

    The title "Knedu min..." is a pun on a famous Esperanto book "Kredu min, sinjorino". Please don't confuse the two (very different) works!
    As you might suppose from the subject matter, this material might not be suitable for the easily-offended.

    PMEG 2020: £28

    The most authorative grammar of Esperanto has just been republished, over a decade since the first version, and is fully updated across 750 pages. We've just received our stock and are selling it at a huge discount! PMEG 2020 is supposed to cost 38€ (~£34); EAB is selling it for £28 to make it easier for you to get an essential reference work into your hands. For the first week (20 to 27 November) it will be available to UK customers only to give them an opportunity to snap up a copy at this price whilst stocks last. After that first week, we'll open up to global sales. Postage is currently £3.10 in the UK, £12.95 overseas. Outside of Europe, that postage category (Royal Mail Economy) is very slow.

  22. The "Complete Manual of Esperanto Grammar" in Esperanto, written by Bertilo Wennergren.

    Special price: £28 compared to the RRP of 38€ (~£35)!

    PMEG 2020 is a 750-page work written for ordinary Esperanto speakers who want to study in detail the International Language. It is a practical means of learning Esperanto rather than a theoretical work for linguists, helping to explain the language in an easy, accessible way, from the very basics to particularly tricky features. An abundance of examples, many from La Fundamento and Zamenhof, illustrate the explanations.

    PMEG treats both classical and modern language usage. Although in many places it defends classical Esperanto against various reform proposals, it also presents modern uses and developments, including some which aren't yet officially recognised.

    If you didn't know, please bear in mind before purchasing that you can access PMEG for free online at bertilow.com/pmeg, and that the online version will be continually updated.
