    There are no two ways around it; if you're going to learn Esperanto, you're going to need a dictionary. But where do you find them? Which ones are the best? Are there paper ones? Online? We've added a page to our Resources section which answers all those questions and more, plus provides links to recommended dictionaries. We hope you find it useful!

    You wait for a launch and then two come at once! It's not only EAB's new site which has taken off this week. Over sixty years after the publication of the revered Teach Yourself Esperanto, its successor for the modern day, Complete Esperanto, has appeared on bookshelves on the High Street. The new book also happens to reside on the bookshelves in Barlaston, and to celebrate the release of a mainstream text book by a renowned publisher, EAB is offering it at a very special price of £20. That's half the recommended retail price. We don't know how long we're going to keep the price this low, so make sure to get your copy now from our brand new online bookshop!

    We're delighted to announce that EAB has published an Esperanto version of The Gruffalo, a world-famous story for children young and not-so-young which has sold over 14 million copies worldwide! As the exclusive world provider of La Krubalo, as he's known in Esperanto, you won't be able to get hold of a copy from anywhere before we send them out. We'll be doing this on December 2nd, so feel free to pre-order now at the special price of £5 (RRP = £7) to get your hands on a copy at the start of December. We're not imposing limits on sales, so if you want to save Santa Claus the trouble of thinking of presents for members in your family, but as many copies as you want! Please feel free to share La Krubalo's site on social media. This is a great chance to show Esperanto to the world!

    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.

    Following suggestions received from members over the course of several years, the trustees of EAB applied to the Charity Commission to revise the charitable object of EAB. The Charity Commission has approved the new wording and so the object of EAB reads now 'To advance education in and about the international language Esperanto and to preserve and promote the culture and heritage of Esperanto for the educational benefit of the general public.' The original wording didn't have any wording which indicated responsibility for cultural heritage, the over 100 years of Esperanto literature held in the Butler Library, which members and the trustees believe is incumbent on EAB to protect. The new wording removes some superfluous wording which didn't obviously relate to measurable charitable activity. After considerable research and internal discussion, the trustees presented the revised wording in the AGM of 2017, after which followed a period of consultation with members for one year. Articles inviting feedback from members were published in Update 78 and 79 and the revised wording was subjected to AGM approval in 2018. Of the 53 votes submitted, 43 were FOR, 8 AGAINST and 2 ABSTAINED. The trustees subsequently submitted the proposed wording to the Charity Commission, who have approved and therefore officialised it with immediate effect.

    After an extensive period of development, the Esperanto Association of Britain is launching a new online home today. The site that you're currently seeing is not the finished version but we feel is stable enough now for EAB members to enjoy and assist with developing by offering their comments and suggestions and reporting bugs where they see them. Feel free to make use of the discussion areas, join one of our social groups, make purchases from our shop, contribute articles, read up on our classroom courses and see what we offer as distance learning, as well as finding out how to find other Esperanto speakers. And if you're new to the Esperanto Association of Britain, we invite you to read about who we are and what we do. Most of the content is currently in English. That will change in the future when the site stabilises and new features, currently under development, appear. We invite you to check back regularly as the site continues to take shape and hope you'll enjoy using it. We would like to pay tribute to Bill Walker, who administrated the previous site from its creation in 2005 until its retirement today. Bill himself refers to simply stepping in back then as a stop-gap and not at all expecting to still be here running substantially the same site so many years later. We are delighted that Bill has offered to continue supporting EAB with this new site and will be part of the team going forward.
