What we're about

This group is an off-shoot of Esperanto-Toronto. We are very excited to be able to expand into Hamilton. Our group is open to everyone from complete beginners to fluent Esperantists and anyone interested in Esperanto.

If you are interested in learning Esperanto, start using the Esperanto for English Speakers course on Duolingo (https://www.duolingo.com/course/eo/en/Learn-Esperanto-Online). This gamified course is the most popular Esperanto course yet. Launched in beta on May 28, 2015, it has tens of thousands of users and counting.

You may also want to check out lernu! — the multilingual website that provides free courses and information on Esperanto.

If you'd like a basic email course with a tutor, sign up for the Free Esperanto Course (http://pacujo.net/esperanto/course/).

Esperanto Conversation for Beginners - Online Event

Online event

Online Esperanto Conversation for Beginners! Please RSVP if you are able to attend!

We will use Jitsi Meet. No account or software is required if you use Chrome or Chromium browsers - however we strongly recommend that you install the Chrome browser extension. You may also choose to install the app: https://support.mayfirst.org/wiki/web-conference#no1

Notes about connecting:
- Jitsi Meet works best with 20 or fewer participants.
- Android and Ipad users need to download the Jitsi Meet app.
- If just one participant is using an un-supported browser (like an older version of Firefox or Internet Edge/Explorer or Safari) it can make the entire meeting fail.
- Some computers, particularly older ones, may struggle to keep up with a meeting.
- If you are using video for all participants, each participant needs a high bandwidth connection. Alternatively, instruct participants to turn off their video when they are not speaking.

There are no break out rooms - however, you can instruct users to go to different rooms and then return to the main room - it's manual, not automatic
