Esperanto Summer Course
Our Summer Course offers you a choice of stimulating courses, activities and lectures at different levels.
Our aim is to provide an Esperanto total-immersion session which we
find is an excellent way of encouraging rapid progress, however,
complete beginners may flounder. The course has become renowned over the
years and sometimes attracts non-British
Esperantists which means that the chat and babble is truly
international. If you have already acquired the basics of the
language or are at the 'fluent Esperantist' stage then you will enjoy
the course immensely and reap Esperanto rewards!

Our Lernu! (formerly Course-you-Can) course is a residential weekend course specifically aimed at
beginners and post beginners. The course aims to help you to read, write and speak Esperanto.
Drondo (Diskut-rondo= discussion Circle)
An Esperanto Open Democracy Discussion group, known in Esperanto as 'Drondo' (short for 'Diskutrondo'!) is a stimulating weekend devoted to discussions on social, political and philosophical themes based on tried-and-tested topics. Discussions are based on notes which have created lively debate in the Blue Mugge Pub in Leek over the past several years. Conducted entirely in Esperanto (notes in Esperanto provided). For more details, see this Drondo background information sheet.^Go to top of page
The British Esperanto Congress
The British Congress is an annual celebration of Esperanto in Britain and has been held regularly for many years. Although this isn't a residential course as such, it's a great opportunity to listen to talks and discussions in Esperanto, and to meet and chat with Esperanto-speakers in an informal environment. The programme usually offers a few "conversation circle" events too, to give inexperienced speakers a more structured opportunity to exercise their language.
