    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!

    Estimataj samideanoj, Feliĉajn jarfinajn festojn al vi. Ni, Movado Junulara Skota, ŝatus anonci al vi ke ni nun fondiĝas kiel neformala asocio. Oni ne devas esti skoto aŭ loĝi en Skotlando por partopreni. Fakte ni esperas plivivigi la junularan Esperanto-movadon pli vaste en ĉi tiuj insuloj de Britio kaj Irlando pli ĝenerale. Ne ekzistas specifa maksimuma aĝo por niaj aliĝintoj. Oni devas mem decidi ĉu oni estas juna aŭ ne. Ni havas Telegraman grupon por babili. Nia unua renkontiĝo estos reta festo de la poezio de Robbie Burns fine de januaro. Ni ankaŭ baldaŭ havos anglalingvan prelegon de doktora studento ĉe la Universitato de Dundee pri la Esperanto-verkisto Arthur Dawson Foote. Cetere, ni intencas helpi en la organizado de la junulara programo de la Universala Kongreso de Belfasto. Trovu nin en Telegramo aŭ, se vi preferus, kontaktu nin per retmesaĝo. Varman saluton, la iniciantoj de Movado Junulara Skota, Manuela Burghelea (Komisiito de Tutmonda Esperantista Junulara Organizo pri Universitata Agado). De la reĝlando de Fife. mb441@st-andrews.ac.uk Peter Cleaves (Sekretario de protokolo de la Esperanto-Asocio de Skotlando). De Edinburgo. petercleaves1@gmail.com Johnnie Gallacher (Komitatano de la Esperanto-Asocio de Skotlando kaj Esperanto-volontulo ĉe E@I). De la Altlandoj. j6525wg@gmx.com

    We're delighted to announce that EAB has revised and republished Mil Unuaj Vortoj en Esperanto (First Thousand Words in Esperanto), and it is available in our shop for only £5! This new version replaces some older vocabulary items (eg audio cassette, video) with newer ones, the appearance of computers and televisions has modernised, and some of the translations have changed from those used in earlier versions. We chose a clear, distinctive font which is reminiscent of a child's handwriting and calculated to be easy for young children to read. If you've got the second version (with the red cover), then you will immediately recognise the cover design; we chose to honour the previous version rather than simply translating the text on the very different English cover. At only five pounds, a steep discount from the retail price of £8, the book is a bargain for children and adult learners alike!

    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.

    The courses Jen Nia Mondo 1 & 2 were published in the 1970s and remain fairly popular even now. Accompanying the courses were recordings of fluent speakers. Those recordings are hard to come by so EAB is making them, fifty tracks in total, freely downloadable.
