iframe>Sinjoro Eng invites you to learn and teach others the international language of Esperanto.
There is a good opportunity for those who love travelling, to experience, perhaps, the the life of a gypsy.
It is not fancy travelling but with a good and caring attitude, you will enjoy and enrich your life. You will have friends from all over the world.
If you can take the pains and joys of travelling from the snowy cap mountains to the sandy white beaches, from the deep jungles to the great flowing rivers, then read on.
With the help of the internet, Esperanto is emerging from its corner of the world. Despite many people still in doubt – some even frowning on it – no one can halt the strength of this language to be a part of the world. Esperanto is one of the top 100 languages in use now.
With the latest project, the translation of Esperanto literature into English coordinated by the British Esperanto Association, Esperanto will make a better impression in the world, especially the English speaking world.
The British Esperanto Association celebrated the 125 anniversary of Esperanto in the British parliament on the 12th of July and the Poland Parliament will have a similar celebration in October.
The need for Esperanto teachers in the near future will be in great demand not only in Malaysia but also in the world.
Even with the assistance of modern technology, there is still a need for innovative and good Esperanto teachers. In developing countries, they have started the learning via the internet programme, as well as in European countries. However, there are still many places where there are not even clean water supply. These places need you the most if you are care for the education of the masses, especially for the wonderful children in rural areas.
The teacher training course is conducted with the cooperation of the International Esperanto Teacher Association and the edukado.net with the assistance from a technical company.
This is almost a full online training course. Therefore, you must be able to access to the internet. If there is a society or association which would like to provide such training, the online course can be adapted into a face-to-face training course too.
The cost of the training is very affordable, which, if you register this year in conjunction with the celebration of 125 years since the birth of Esperanto, would be below RM 2,000, excluding other learning facilities like internet access, books and stationery.
The applicant has to have a fair command of Esperanto which is based on the CEFR test with at least a B2 grade. But there would be some allowances for the caring, loving and good-hearted individuals who place high importance on education.
If you are interested, you can visit this Edukado page and also learn online, or you can join the Insulo Universitato, which is a very intensive course, with more than eight hours of teaching and learning per day in three weeks, to become a certified proficient.
There are many such courses in the world; Hainan University in China conducted such a course in February of this year and it would be conducted again next year in the same venue with sponsorship from the Hainan Education Department and the government of China.
The two sites that I always recommend are lernu.net and kurso.com from Brazil. These two sites are free of charge for learning online and downloading lessons.
This short film also shows how the course of Insulo Universitato was conducted in Hainan University in the early of this year.
