Announcements: February 2022

Bonvenon en Februaro! I hope the New Year has found you well. Here in Sault Ste. Marie, we're just getting started with the deepest depths of winter, but it's only four more weeks of the worst cold, so there's not much else to do but to be brave about it and carry on. The big announcement this month is that I've completed an audio supplement to the 10-lesson Free Esperanto Course and it is now available on our YouTube channel. Click here to listen to the audio course . This audio course will model good pronunciation and help new students develop their listening abilities. Comments on these videos have been disabled, so if you want the help of a tutor you'll have to sign up with us to get started ! We'll also be hosting an online hangout this month! This meeting will be an opportunity for Esperanto speakers in the north to catch up with one another, but also for new speakers to practice what they've been learning. We'll be meeting on Saturday,

Potenca - Powerful ("potent") Smeraldo - Emerald Ĝuste - Do you know the difference between "Ĝusta" and "Prava?"
