    Our friend Bill Chapman, an Esperantist since the age of 16, sadly passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 21 2020. Bill had been battling cancer, with his usual cheer and optimism, over the past year. Unfortunately, despite steps to isolate him, Bill contracted Covid-19 and was taken to hospital, where he left us, although not before telling the nursing staff all about Esperanto, true to form! It isn't possible to do justice to Bill in a notification like this one. Rest assured that there will be more about Bill in the next issue of La Brita Esperantisto. Much as many of us would dearly like to salute Bill, I'm afraid that lockdown restrictions limiting public gatherings and entry into Wales mean that it is very unlikely that we will have the opportunity to. If the situation changes, I will post an update. Bill's family have nominated two charities which meant something to Bill, should anybody wish to make a donation in his memory. They are: Citizens Advice Bangor, which offers free, independent and confidential advice that helps people with legal and financial worries, and of which Bill was a trustee; Awyr Las Gogledd Cymru - Blue Sky North Wales, an NHS Charity that supports the specific hospital wards, departments or community healthcare services which the NHS in North Wales cannot provide. Nia amiko Bill Chapman, kiu esperantistiĝis nur 16-jara, bedaŭrinde forpasis pace ĵaudon la 21-an de majo 2020. Dum unu jaro li bataladis kanceron, kun siaj kutimaj gajeco kaj optimismemo. Malgraŭ granda kloplodado izoligi lin, Bill bedaŭrinde enhospitaliĝis pro KOVIM-19. Plena nekrolojo aperos en La Brita Esperantisto. Pro la pandemio, ŝajnas neeble, ke eksterfamilianoj povos partopreni la funebraĵojn. Se la situacio ŝanĝiĝos, mi diskonigos la informojn. La familio de Bill elektis du bonfarajn asociojn al kiuj oni povus mondonaci memore al Bill. Tiuj estas: Citizens Advice Bangor (Konsila servo por civitanoj en la urbo Bangor), kiu proponas senpagajn, sendependajn kaj konfidencajn konsilojn al homoj kun zorgoj leĝaj kaj financaj, kaj de kiu Bill estis kuratoro. Awyr Las Gogledd Cymru - Blue Sky North Wales, bonfaraĵo de la nacia sanservo, kiu subtenas precipe la hospitalajn sekciojn kaj sanservojn en la komunumo, kiujn la NHS (Nacia sanservo) en Norda Kimrujo ne povas provizi.

    Mi ĵus finlegis la duan volumon de "La fotoalbumo". Ĝi estas eĉ pli bona ol la unua, laŭ mi. (Jen la paĝnombroj de la tri volumoj: 366, 165, 77. Bonŝance ne estas kvara volumo, ĉar ĝi estus nura broŝuro!)

    I've found Duolingo's Esperanto course to be an excellent resource. It's by far the best of the courses they offer of those I've tried, and the only one where I've come away able to converse in the target language. I keep a general list of learning resources here. For complete beginners, I'd recommend starting with Duolingo (make sure you join the Facebook group too) and these introductory video lessons. D.K. Jordan's Being Colloquial In Esperanto is an ideal read once you've got going. Check EAB's member map, Eventa Servo, and Duolingo Events for opportunities to meet other speakers.
