Esperanto has a long history in Rochester, but we've only recently started having regular monthly meetings again. Thanks to Duolingo Events, we've been meeting new speakers and learners of the language. Every month there are new faces and last month was our best attended yet. In the meanwhile - even before I've gotten this event created on the system, I got two new RSVP's - one from an old friend who hasn't been out recently, and another from a new learner.
This is a great opportunity to speak Esperanto with experienced speakers and people of all ages.
Join us at Starbucks, have a coffee or cookie, and speak some Esperanto. This will be an opportunity to travel to Esperantujo and speak Esperanto with several experienced speakers, but it also the sort of event where beginners will feel very comfortable. The only thing we ask is that you come ready to speak at least a little Esperanto - even if it's only Saluton. Kiel vi fartas? and Mi ne komprenas. The important thing is to be ready to try.
Depending on the speaking level of the people who come, we will have a mix of free conversation and conversational activities. Eavesdrop on some more fluent speakers to see how much you understand. Find out how Esperanto is used locally, regionally, and around the world.
Participants under 18 years old should come with a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult.
