The North America Summer Esperanto Course(NASK), supported by the Esperanto League for North America (ELNA), is a yearly event known throughout the Esperanto world. For this year's 31st NASK, forty-five students from ten countries gathered at San Francisco State University, just a mile from the Pacific Ocean. These students all found a comfortableclass among NASK's four diverse levels of instruction, ranging from complete beginners to fluent speakers. Outside of class, evening programs, organized by both instructors and course members, gives the opportunity to explore different cultures and crafts unique to those countries. Even the cafeteria becomes a little Esperantujo as students and teachers gather to use the International Language for debates, discussions, jokes, and making new friends. The relaxed atmosphere and genuine friendliness of both students and faculty unite to create an unforgettable experience to which many course members return again and again. If you've never attended a session of NASK, we hope that you will consider adding to our diverse courses by your presence soon.
The Four Levels for the 31st NASK (Junio--Julio 2000)
The SFSU Student Fellowship Fund of the Esperanto League for North America can provide partial financial support for needy students in the program. Clubs and individuals are invited to recommend students for advanced studies. Interested students should write in Esperanto, giving their Esperanto histories (study, teaching, and club activity) to Ellen Eddy.
Classes are planned for evening Esperanto programs, including group singing, folk dancing, slide shows, practice in public speaking, special presentations of interest to teachers, and a variety of topics dealing with Esperanto language and culture. Reza Kheir-Khah will guide the popular conversation groups. The schedule of these non-credit activities will be announced in class.
