This technique works more effectively for beginning and intermediate students than one would expect, although these groups are given a constant helping hand which ensures that they will not (hopefully!) drown in a sea of Esperanto! On this occasion there was a full gamut of lecture ranging from Universal Grammar, the Etruscan language, the history of the Classical Guitar, the Evolutionary Mechanisms of Esperanto, Computerisation of Musical Notation and the Art of Film-making, intertwined with language challenges, musical criticism, table talk grammar and vocabulary-building.
The Weekend included an idyllic visit to the island on the Lake of Menteith where Mary Queen of Scots sought refuge in the Priory. The facilities were good; the food was abundant; and the atmosphere was challenging in the most pleasant way. Dunblane has become an institution in the Esperanto scene; but it has never lost its variety and stimulation. Why not give it a try? Then escape to the wonders of the Western Highlands which are only a few kilometres away! Many thanks to Jean Bisset, the Organiser, on behalf of the Scottish Esperanto Association!
