EAB NetNews - December 2000


Keeping you informed!

Ĉu Ni Artumi?



Do you like sketching or painting? Do you long for a couple of days away from the bustle, no shopping or cooking, TV, or interruptions, so you can get on with it?

Would you like to join a 'do-it-yourself' art group at Barlaston during the 'Ni Festivalu' weekend? Any medium permitted. All levels of proficiency acceptable - this is not a competition! Bring your own pencils, paints and paper etc.

The college has many charming corners and garden views or 'still life' could be arranged, according to your taste. Perhaps Esperantists would be good subjects (?!)


Meals and amusements will be taken with the rest of the Esperantists and I'm sure you could 'sit in' on some of their sessions. They would be welcome to join us.

Whether your Esperanto is at beginner level or advanced, you will be equally welcome and will find the opportunity to improve in a relaxing environment.

This letter is in English to encourage Esperanto-beginners.

If you would like to discuss this proposal please contact Joyce Bunting, 42 Ridgewood Drive, Harpenden, Herts, AL5 3LH. Tel: 01582 760564 or Derek Tatton at Wedgwood Memorial College, Barlaston, Staffs. ST12 9DG. Tel: 01782 372105 or 373427

N.B. Don't forget the NI FESTIVALU event itself. There are still a few vacant places. Contact Derek Tatton about these.

As an alternative to the Universala Kongreso which is not suitable for beginners, we are searching for an international direct method one week course to which beginners could go and learn in a pleasant and international atmosphere. There seems to be two possibilities in France. Here is information about KVINPETALO. which is located near Potiers in east central France. From reports received it seems a pleasant place. It seems to be a very cheap holiday course! Anyone interested to go should contact the office. We will put everyone in touch with each other and try to make everything as smooth as possible. So, even if you yourself are not interested to go, think of anyone else who might and suggest that they get in touch with us. In fact at the same time there is a course on an advanced level so there is something for everyone!

AŬGUSTO Preparado al Altaj Studoj
21a - 25a Gvidas Janine Dumoulin kaj Georges Lagrange
kaj Por la Komencantoj:
samtempe: Gvidas Sophie Mensen
Aligho al la stagho (kurskotizo) 150 FF
Tranoktado (kiom ajn longe) 200 FF

La ĉi-supraj estas principe unufojaj pagoj.

Plus, laudezire: Chiu matenmangho 25 FF
Ĉiu tagmangho 49 FF
Ĉiu vespermangho 35 FF

With currently 10.30 francs to the £ that makes the total cost for a week at just under £90.00 to which travel costs must be added. Four travelling in a car would not cost much.

Fuller details will be worked out and available from the office if an s.a.e. is sent.

The 53rd Congress of the International Railway Workers Esperanto Federation will take place 12th to 19th may 2001 at Tabor in Czech Republic. Local organiser is L.K.K. Angliska 878, CZ Dobrichhovice, Czech Res. Phone +420-2-991 2201. Fax +420-2-991 2126. email

From the 9th to 12th May there will be a pre-congress event in Prague. Sounds very interesting! Think about going!

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to you all whether you be Christians or Pagans!
