Hi,

I was thinking recently about the promotion of Esperanto and I would like to share my thoughts with you.

I think that a good way to promote Esperanto would be to organize in school some Esperanto days (or mornings or afternoons). It would consist to a presentation of Esperanto and its culture to students (and interested teachers). Of course, it would require an authorization from headmasters  but it would be organize free of charge. I suppose that one of the main problem would be to find free esperantist for these animations but I think that many esperanto-club have dynamic retired people who would be able to do it.

I don't have much time now to develop this idea. What do you think of it? Is it realised somewhere?

That's a great idea. Though I don't think enough people take Esperanto seriously enough to go to all the hassle of setting this kind of thing up. I certainly plan to teach Esperanto in schools when I'm a better Esperantist. My girlfriend's school is a 'language college', so there's a chance I could get them to take me on as a teacher, even if only on a voluntary basis.

Tio eatas bonega ideo. Kvankam, mi pensas, ke ne suficxa popolo konsideras Esperanton kiel suficxa serioza organizi tian ajxon. Mi planas instrui Esperanton je lernejoj, kiam mi estas pli bona Esperantisto. La lernejo de mia koramikino estas 'ling-kolegio', do mi eble farigxi instruiston, ecx kiel volontulo.

That's probably a terrible translation. But you learn by trying.

Tio versxajne estas malbonega traduko. Sed, vi lernas per penado.

Thats a great idea!

At my school, the only languages on offer are French, German & Spanish, so I think it would be brilliant to have some Esperanto promotion in schools. When I am older I would like to work with Esperanto, so that would be a good thing to do! rido.gif

I think the best way to do this (while Esperanto is still "iffy") is to have an Esperanto Club at schools. I plan to start one wherever I end up when I start teaching in 3 years.

The Esperanto Association of Britain recently launched a scheme along these lines called Springboard, see its website for info about it.

I know a teacher in Cape Cod, MA who has done something like this. If you want to get in contact with her to find out how she handled it, send me a lernu! message letting me know. I think her class was using lernu! so if you're interested, I could probably just let you guys exchange lernu! usernames.

Although I support the teaching of Esperanto in public schools, I have two thoughts:

1. The current longivity of Esperanto is due to the fact that it is a grass-roots movement. The very few attempts at government intervention have proved to be short lived at best and disastrous at worst. The best way to keep Esperanto as a living, thriving language is to keep it grass-roots.

2. Education is all fine and good, but it would seem, at least historically in the United States, that the best way to make something successful is to popularize it in the media. If we want to make the language popular among youth, we need to make it "cool." This is why large corporations are willing to spend billions of dollars on product placement in movies and television.

There have been some half-hearted attempts at putting Esperanto in the popular media, such as the movie Blade Trinity and that British show, the name of which escapes me at the moment.

How do we do this without huge bank accounts? I have no idea. PR isn't my specialty. Sorry.
