Erin Robertson, participant in the Adelaide Homeschoolers Language Launch
Kiam – 9th to the 15th of July 2011
Kio – We played lots of fun games learnt lots, and had tons of fun while learning heaps at the same time!
Kie – Learning at the University of Adelaide was a fun thing to do – it’s a beautiful building with pretty surroundings, and generally just a great place!
Kiel – The teacher taught us Esperanto in a sort of sandwich – fun games and cute songs to sing in the middle, surrounded by helpful instruction on either side.
Kiu – Going through the course with my family was fun at times, but challenging at others, in a fun sort of way. Learning Esperanto with them (Parents in particular) was a great way of keeping me on my toes, and I learnt almost as many things from them as I did from Penny!
Penny was a fabulous teacher, taking the time to correct us and explain how the language worked in different ways. She always had an answer and a happy smile for each question or mistake, and wasn’t at all bossy or cross like some teachers.
Kial – I think, given the proper amount of speakers, Esperanto could be a great way to talk to anybody from anywhere in the world. As it’s easy to learn, it wouldn’t be hard to set up some place where kids or teens from all over the world could go and talk to one another, and maybe if people from other countries could talk to one another more, and become better friends, one day there might even be whole world peace! ^.^
