Target Audience: Primary School Teachers and Principals, Curriculum Leaders and Policy Makers
Short Session Description: The world’s most user-friendly language is also the most multicultural, talk 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.
Penny Vos has 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.
