Paul has been involved in dialogue for several weeks. The results are very satisfactory: accurate and positive information concerning Esperanto has now appeared in the BBC publication, "The Roots/Routes of English" which supplements the prestigious programme with the same title being broadcast on Radio 4.
Another cause for pleasure is the interview with the eminent Esperantist Peter Danning, which is on an accompanying CD. Well done Paul!
The value of the prize is £150, which is to be used for the purpose of travel abroad for the study of Esperanto.

Note by Don Lord: "This is an extremely important business for the Esperanto movement in Great Britain, and I urge you to enter it. The University is being most helpful and co-operative, and it would be a shame if Esperantists let this opportunity, particularly in the millennium year, slip away"
However, the Association has no objection to your ordering directly from UEA or from FEL. In fact, FEL (Flemish Esperanto League) has by far the most professional on-line bookshop in the Esperanto community. It carries a large stock and accepts net credit card payments.
Why not have a look? You will be impressed and sometimes will be able to read reviews of the books in Esperanto. Even if you are reluctant to use credit cards for on-line transactions, you will increase your knowledge of Esperanto publications and at least be able to give Ipswich the correct bibliographical details!
