  1. Ĉina Radio Internacia kaj la Universala Esperanto-Asocio lanĉis konkurson Mia Asocio, Mia Urbo. La celo estas diskonigi Esperanto-asociojn kaj prezenti lokajn kulturaĵojn per filmetoj. La plej bonaj filmetoj ricevos premiojn, inkluzive de repago de vojaĝkostoj al Montrealo por la Universala Kongreso en 2020! Plenaj detaloj troviĝas ĉi tie. Atentu, ke la limdato estas la 30-a de novembro 2019.
  2. What shall we try after Blaise Cendrars? Most of the group members have already bought so it makes sense for it to be one of those. Does anybody have any preference which one? We could probably start that one in November, which gives time for people who haven't finished the other one (including me!) to put it to bed.
  3. Nope, it's not something we go out of our way to offer. I think barely anybody ever used the service, and putting strangers into phone contact with each other doesn't seem to fit with today's more safety-conscious norms. It's not hard in 2019 (especially for you with all the people you know!) to find someone to speak to on Skype etc, such as edukado.net's Ekparolu! service.
  4. Ne plaĉos al vi ekscii, do, ke ĉiuj la libroj aĉetitaj de la sama eldonisto estas tiaj. La spinskribo konformas al normoj en, ekzemple, Francujo. Kutime mi surbretigas tiajn librojn inverse, por eviti tion, ke estos miksaĵo. Kiel vi, mi ne intencas konservi ĝin. Jen bona afero, ĉar ĝi kaj aliaj tiaj libroj estas tro altaj je kelkaj milimetroj por la kutimaj bretoj!
  5. Kion vi celis, ke okazu? Ke la PDF estu enkorpigita?
  6. Mi nun legis duonon de la libro. Kutime je tiu ĉi stadio, leganto povus raporti ion pri la rakonto, la fono, la diversaj personoj. Krom tio, ke okazas ribelo en iu afrika lando, mi tamen povus diri nenion pri tiuj aferoj. Kelkajn nomojn mi eble elkapigus, sed la verkinto ŝajne ne donis al ili karakterizojn.
  7. Provante marapide legi la libron por noti al mi la lingvaĵojn malplaĉajn, mi alvenas nenien. Mi eble ignoros la lingvaĵojn por ebligi al mi pli multe legi kaj tiel iom koni la rakonton esperante, ke mi iom pli ŝatos ĝin. Alie mi riskas neniam finlegi ĝin!
  8. Mi alvenis al paĝo 9. Jam ĝenis min 'paseo' en 'Oni provis imagi la paseon'. Kial ne 'pasintaĵon/kio okazis/la fonon'? Persone mi ne povus subteni la uzon de 'aliel'. Tio tute haltigis la legadon. Mi ne kontraŭas, ke oni aldonu finaĵojn al la tabelvortoj (tiea, tiama, kiuj, kiu kiuas), sed tabelvortajn finaĵojn oni male ne aldonu al aliaj vortoj. Jam 'alio' kaj 'alia' havas proprajn signifojn, kaj se 'aliel' oni permesas, kial ne 'Mi vidis Times libron'?
  9. Same pri tiuj ĉi vortoj. Mi devis kontroli kelkajn vortojn, ekzemple senjori (p8). Leginte la difinon, mi facile rekonas la francan radikon. Ĉu estas bona ideo uzi jaman vorton apenaŭ konatan, kaj tiel devigi eĉ spertajn legantojn iri al vortaro? Mi ne certas.
  10. Troviĝas glosaro en la lastaj paĝoj. Tiu ĉi ŝajnas al mi tute nenecesa vorto prenita el la franca. Oni povus uzi jaman vorton por klarigi la saman signifon, ĉu ne?
  11. Mi komencis legi la libron. Jam estas frue, tro frue por ekhavi ideon. Kion vi rimarkis pri ĝi? Ĉu ĝi ŝajnas interesa? Kion vi opinias pri la lingvaĵo en ĝi? Ĉu kelkajn vortojn vi devis kontroli en vortaro? Ĉu trafis vin la penso, ke en iu momento la aŭtoro povus elekti pli konatan vorton?
  12. Saluton, @Paul Harry Barron: jes, ni mendis plurajn pliajn ekzemplerojn, kiel ankaŭ por aliaj tiaj libroj, kiuj rapide elvendiĝis.
  13. Our first sessions of 2020 are set for February 29, ending on March 1. Elizabeth Stanley (Lernu) and Harry Barron (Lernu Plu) will be at EAB's headquarters leading FREE sessions of our courses for new and progressing learners. Both are experienced teachers with decades of Esperanto behind them; you're in good hands! Details

    Lernu Plu

    until
    A FREE session for people who have learned a bit of Esperanto, who have maybe completed a course or two, and who want to improve. The course takes place at EAB's headquarters and is led by Harry Barron. This course is perfect for people who have a reasonable understanding of Esperanto but who haven't had much if any opportunity to speak it out loud or meet other learners. If you're not sure you're quite up to this level, there's our beginners' session Lernu happening at the same time! Details and sign-up form.

    Lernu

    until
    A FREE session for new learners at EAB's headquarters, led by Elizabeth Stanley, who is a retired teacher and has spoken Esperanto for nearly three decades. This course is perfect for people who have only done a little bit of Esperanto but who haven't necessarily finished a course. Details and sign-up form.
  16. Our final sessions of 2019 are set for October 5 and 6. Maurizio Giacometto (Lernu) and Chris Lewis (Lernu Plu) will be at EAB's headquarters leading FREE sessions of our courses for new and progressing learners. Both are Esperanto speakers with C1 qualifications in the language (the highest possible accredited exam) and know exactly what it's like being new, having only started learning the language themselves a few years ago; you're in good hands!

    Lernu

    until
    A FREE session for total new beginners learners at EAB's headquarters, led by Maurizio Giacometto. This course is perfect for people who have only done a little bit of Esperanto but who haven't necessarily finished a course. It's not been that long since Maurizio was a beginner himself and now he is the editor of EAB's newsletter and is certified at C1 level, so you'll be in good hands from somebody who knows very well what it's like to take your first steps into Esperanto. Details and sign-up form.

This course is perfect for people who have a reasonable understanding of Esperanto but who haven't had much if any opportunity to speak it out loud or meet other learners. Chris Lewis started learning Esperanto himself around only three years ago. He's since progressed through all of EAB's courses as a student and is certified at C1 level in the language. Last year he made his debut at our annual conference, leading a workshop on a sometimes tricky part of Esperanto, and he is the president of the London Esperanto Club. Details and sign-up form.
  19. Bonvenon al la diskut-temo pri la unua libro, kiun ni esploros en nia klubo. Temas pri Ĉu vi konas Blaise Cendrars? de Manuel de Seabra: Ni komencos legi la libron en septembro!
  20. I don't know how book clubs are supposed to work, so we need to work out what we do after getting our hands on book 1, @Rico, @Jack Warren, @simone davis and @Vilĉjo Walker. To prevent things getting cluttered, do we post in one thread per book or create a new thread at every check-in point? The former is probably neater, I think. Which language do we use? Both, as required? I don't want new people to feel left out but it might also be useful for people to type in Esperanto about a particular subject. Do we say something like 'The aim is to read from page X to page Y by such-and-such a date?' What happens next? Does the Club Leader (currently me but happy to stand aside for someone else) set some questions about the content, having already read ahead?
  21. Oh, I wouldn't know. I have no idea how old Quark 5 is. I'm an InDesign man
  22. You'd need to source your font from a site like Font Squirrel. Alongside options for style (serif, handwritten etc), you'll also find an option to filter by fonts containing glyphs from a particular language. Esperanto is one of those. That's not the end of the story, however. In my experience, nearly every font claiming to have Esperanto's characters doesn't, so it's important to test the font before downloading it and getting disappointed. I use the words ehoŝanĝo ĉiuĵaŭde for this purpose. If the letters aren't present, your test text will not be correct: Unfortunately, for some reason, even fonts with the correct glyphs in are failing today. I don't know why that should be; it's always worked before. Fortunately, there's another test you can make. Since there's a tab to view the glyphs, do exactly that and then navigate to a letter which you'd expect to see. If it's there, then you know that the font is usable: There are many sites for downloading fonts, so give them a try until you find something you like.
  23. We're delighted to have received the new book from our friend Bill Chapman! The Early History of Esperanto in the United Kingdom is a labour of love which brings to life the names of all those people who learned Esperanto prior to the First World War. We want everybody with an interest in Esperanto to get reading Bill's book and so we're selling it a give-away price of only five pounds! That's nearly half of the recommended price of £8.95. We've got the book on the shelves and we're waiting for your order. Pick it up now from our shop! Is it good? Of course it is! Here's a review on Amazon!
