It's been awhile since I wrote anything here, but to catch up on the biggest thing in my life, I've finally gotten my PhD. Yay! And the next step seems to be into a postdoctoral research position in either New York City, USA; Mons, Belgium; or Barcelona, Spain. None of the research groups are being quick about making decisions, but I'd love to go to any of those places. Has anyone spent any time living in Belgium or Spain? I'd love to hear about it.
Talk of the town: Littlewoods’ Esperanto ad
If the world of fashion and advertising is all Greek to you, then a new TV ad might prove even more confusing.
Littlewoods Direct is trying to sell its clothing range using Esperanto - a language invented in the 19th century.
The new commercial will be screened for the first time today. Esperanto enthusiasts - there are an estimated 2,500 speakers in Britain - are hoping it will boost the language's popularity.
I've posted an entry about my IJK experience at my other blog in both English and Esperanto. There are even pictures.
It just hit me where the *biggest* need for Esperanto is these days.
Esperanto needs a beginning audio course for learning Esperanto!
MP3s and podcasts for learning during commuting!
I myself wanted an audio course.
Why didn't I see this?
I can think of at least 5 non-Esperantists who've asked me for this in the last 3 months.
Does anyone know if anyone's working on this already?
Jen Nia Mondo is exactly what I was looking for.
Now the problem is that people who asked me for it want to be able to download it from somewhere, rather than have to buy CDs, wait for them, and then rip to MP3s. I don't know that there's an answer to this problem, though.
