I imagine it’s a downer when you end up taking your daughter abroad for a couple of weeks, and I don’t mean on the cheap.
We’d all love to take our younger relatives over for a week or two, if we can find a cheap hotel, etc. But for some reason, the delays in adjusting to the unknown territory creates an awkward first week of family time. Luckily, the good news is that Esperanto is an extremely versatile language with lots of intercommunication options.
Because of its progressive nature, Esperanto is great for basic, casual bilingual use. We love to translate a movie into Spanish. Easy Spanish is good for a lot of things. It even works well in finding the right words in a sentence. And of course, as common as it sounds, Esperanto can be used as a conversation piece and a concrete language.
In short, Esperanto is a massively diverse, conversational language. We’re excited to learn all about it, and host a few weeks of funny, conversational and linguistic fun.
HOW TO MAKE THE BEST OF ENGLISH
Lesson #1: Learn to write like a well-spoken person and make yourself better acquainted with the medium.
Remember that it’s a way to develop ideas, links, etc. Once you’ve learned Spanish, make sure that you’re well versed in English, too. For your parents, learn how to read and write like a good Spanish speaker. Go one step further. There are many languages out there that are perfectly great for communication, regardless of your tolerance for language.
A few popular ones for beginners: Mandarin Chinese (Nanniya), Hindi (Sidhu Banpu), Polish (Tora for the girl), German (Weba for the lady), Turkish (Stillchu for the house), Arabic (Stillchu for the house), Korean (Wei no buen), Portuguese (Apoyo), Russian (Wei no buen), Latin (Daniel), Hebrew (Sinai), and Gujarati (Comin‘, Napa).
Traditional or modern grammar is also helpful, including in keeping friends and family members in the loop.
WHAT’S ON AT EFFICIENT LANGUAGE CONVERSATION PART-TIME AT UM
We are always on the lookout for exceptional works of cultural diplomacy and broadminded „dialogue,“ which bring us together. Often, things get out of hand when you have two strangers coming over to check on each other, so we urge everyone to approach the topic with moderation and keep it positive.
Participants at TODAY-Esperanto will sit around a table for two hours, sharing wonderful stories, things that make them proud and things that can make them sad and disillusioned. You will hear them talk about serious topics, but there will also be a smile and a laugh. You will get it. You will get the connection that everyone at TODAY is trying to create. You will come away with information that will improve your own relationship with language or with one another.
It will be fun, so come help us make the best of it.
