Name :

Penelope (Penny) Vos


Co-Presenter:

Tim Morley

Organization:
Several Schools, Mondeto and Springboard to Languages ( not for profit social enterprises)


From:

Australia and the UK


In:

English


Target Audience:

Primary School Teachers and Principals, Curriculum Leaders and Policy Makers


Short Session Description:

The most user-friendly language is also the most multicultural so start talking with the world in Esperanto!

 

Long Session Description:


Which foreign language is hardest to master? Your first!

So it makes sense to start with the world's easiest language, Esperanto, to build confidence and make friends in dozens of diverse cultures.

Learn as you teach so your students will gain from your example of openness to learning through life.

This is a discussion, so the exact content depends on what you are interested to know!

Teaching Esperanto as an Apprenticeship Language, and an act of Global Citizenship, is something that an empowered teacher can do even without whole school participation, but it also makes sense as a School-Wide Policy and is scaleable to school districts, states and nations. So, if you have a broader focus than one classroom, we can talk about that too.

I've been teaching Esperanto to children since 1997 and they have loved surprising their parents with real ability to communicate with children all over the world in their shared global language.

Hi People!

I'd love this discussion to get started so stop and share your thoughts and questions about children's use of languages in schools and how it helps us create Global Community.

Who'll be first?

Best regards,

Penny

As a foreign language teacher for more than 30 years I have experienced how much it helps children to learn Esperanto first, a language with a logically built up grammar system, and start using it for getting in touch with other learners all over the word. I feel it my task to give them this free means of communication and encourage them to make friends, to open windows to new horizons and use this language, which is not restricted to one or other part of the world.

I think the topic you have chosen is very interesting and I would like to follow the discussions.

Best regards,

Zsófia

Thanks, Zsofia, I'm really glad of your participation!

What countries have been involved in Esperanto learning and communication in your experience?

In the last project our German school had partners in Britain and Hungary. We even had skype contacts with 6-9-year-old ones and experienced talking, singing online!

With another group we regularly exchange information with some schools in Poland and organize each year a so called summer school for 1 or 2 weeks. It is really great to see how fast they progress using Esperanto.

We have had contacts also with learners from Portugal, Rumania, South Korea and our newests friends are from Italy. 

Zsofia

Hi Penny and Tim

It's really good that you are working out innovative ways to help encourage the learning of langauges in Australia and England and other countries.

Best wishes,

Hazel

Please remove the GETideas tag... this is a special strand for ed tech start ups.

Thanks!
