Since probably only very few of you have ever learned Esperanto, I thought about creating a MeetUp to first explain what Esperanto is, how it is used where and by whom and what's so cool about it. And I'd like to also give a quick introduction to how Esperanto works (grammar, vocabulary). So it will also be like a little informal course on the language.
In case you have never heard of Esperanto: It's an artificial language created about 127 years ago, which was designed to be neutral (well, one could argue about that) and easy (which is definitely true, you can become fluent in just a few months!). Taking its words from many European languages, it's indeed a complete language in its own right with one or two million speakers in the world and even a few thousand native speakers.
I speak the language fluently and would like to teach it or inform about it in general. From experience I can say that this works best in a nice and cosy bar atmosphere. =)
You do *not* need to know a lot of languages and you don't need to speak Esperanto already (sed se vi jam parolas ĝin, mi tre ĝojus, se vi povos veni!), just be interested. We're going to meet at the Starbucks next to the Central station.
