ESF seeks to enhance the teaching of Esperanto and its use for educational purposes. To this end, we support the development and evaluation of innovative educational materials and programs.
We also provide direction and financial support to the North American Summer Esperanto Institute / Nord-Amerika Somera Kursaro (NASK).
ESF's educational agenda is defined and realized in collaboration with other groups and organizations. Since the first ESF-sponsored colloquium on Esperanto and education (April 5, 2001, in Arlington, VA), three sets of partners have proven especially valuable in assisting ESF to carry out various initiatives.
Esperanto@Interreto (E@I), a non-governmental youth organization recognized by the European Union, which has played a central role in a number of web design projects supported by ESF. Chief among these is the language learning website lernu.net.
Key instructors and organizers of NASK continue to play an important role in the Institute’s development and delivery. Click here to learn more.
Teachers, researchers and organizations interested in developing educational initiatives involving the use of Esperanto are encouraged to contact ESF for possible assistance.
