Conversational Esperanto at Stanford

Bechtel International Center, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305

Conversational Esperanto, The International Language, is a class, and discussion group, that is open to Stanford students AND the general public. We meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the International Center on the Stanford University campus during the academic year (minus the usual holidays and breaks). This class is free if taken for no credit. Stanford students who would like to take the course for 2 credits per quarter may do so by jumping through many administrative hoops (please ask if you are serious). Students taking the class for credit must come to classes (of course) but everyone else is free to drop-in at any time. You can join the class any time during the year, but please contact me, via email ([masked]) first, so i can schedule a time for you to experience my "Lesson Zero"! See http://Esperanto.org/stanford/ for all details. If you have questions, please contact [masked] directly, rather than using the Meetup system which rarely functions well. Please note that Meetup isn't the only place that this class is posted. Even if Meetup says that nobody is coming, there will always be a minimum of 4 of us (unless somebody is sick, etc.). lately the average is 10. Please join us!
