NASK: North American Summer Esperanto Institute

US Summer Esperanto Program 2020, Fall Session

This year NASK and Esperantic Studies Foundation will offer a second virtual section of the traditional summer Esperanto program.

There will be two courses:

“B2 Level Conversation Course” with Tim Morley, from the UK. 

“My course will target learners who are at approximately the B2 level, and who primarily want to work on their language ability.  We’ll do some grammar and vocabulary work, but most of the time will be spent on active usage of already acquired knowledge through listening and speaking, with some reading and writing.  I’ll need your active participation to create together a friendly, supportive atmosphere in the class.” (Limit 20 students.)

“The Phenomenon of Esperanto:  What Kind of World Did We Enter?”, with José Antonio Vergara, from Chile. 

“Each of us for some reason decided to learn Esperanto.  What justifies our respective steps toward this goal?  Esperanto is in fact a language, but is it only a language?

Here’s my invitation:  the more you’re progressing towards full competence in Esperanto (C1/C2 level for this course), the more value there is in learning together about the characteristics and historical aims of the diverse multidimensional initiative that we joined.” (Limit 25 students.)

The dates are:

September 28-October 2
October 5-9

(Two weeks of instruction, ten days altogether)

The time will be:

7:30-9:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (New York)
