Experienced Esperanto teacher Bill Maxey will be our instructional guide for the weekend. The emphasis will be on building basic skills and vocabulary to facilitate understanding. Bill has planned a varied program including a time to “ask me anything” about grammar and usage, an introductory session on the development of Esperanto, and a taste of literature. We will put our skills into practice by trying to use only Esperanto to communicate. There will be a variety of engaging activities and an international visitor via Skype. Please bring musical instruments and games to share.

Saturday afternoon will include free time. The surrounding area is beautiful and perfect for a nature hike. There will be lots of time for socializing, and a time for music, games, and refreshments is planned for Saturday evening.

Parking is free.

After you have registered, you will receive a confirmation, which will allow you to indicate medical and dietary concerns.
