Happy Birthday Esperanto!

The international language Esperanto is 124 years old.  It was devised by Ludvic Lazarus Zamenhof and designed for international communication and the peaceful coexistence of different people and cultures. Today there are reportedly two to three million speakers of Esperanto worldwide.

The 96th World Congress of Esperanto is being held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 23-30 July 2011.  The annual meetings have been held all over Europe and the United States, as well as Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Israel, Japan, South Korea,  and Vietnam is scheduled for 2012.

Esperanto Comes to Wales

Esperanto Youth of Britain members have visited the city of Cardiff or ‘Kairdiff’ for their first meeting in Wales prior to the British Esperanto Congress in Llandudno in May 2010, when speakers from around the UK will gather. The group hope their visit will create interest in Esperanto and claim that the language is growing in popularity.

There are two to three million speakers of Esperanto worldwide, and four UK primary schools teach Esperanto as a preparation for learning other languages, under a pilot scheme called Springboard organised by the Esperanto Association of Britain.
