From a blog visitor:-
Adult Learners’ Week (18-24 May) is when our thoughts turn to learning skills – whether for work or just for the fun of it. The Esperanto Association of Britain is offering a free postal or email course in the international language – marked by a network of voluntary tutors.
The free course is suitable for those who would like a quick taster, and gives an overview of the language in twelve bite-sized portions. Once the learner has received the first lesson, they simply return their answers. Then the tutor replies with guidance and the next lesson.
For details of the work of the Esperanto Association and the free course, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
