The Cultural Center of Gresillon, in COLLABORATION with ILEI (International League of Esperanto Teachers) organizes courses for people who have begun to learn Esperanto and who wish to make rapid progress thanks to intensive courses led by experienced teachers who use the direct method (all in Esperanto), the most recommended for intensive learning. We offer three levels (courses).

COURSE B1-B2 « Come, see, experience! » (21 - 27 April 2018)

  • Teacher: Zsófia KÓRÓDY, a Hungarian living in the Esperanto City Herzberg am Harz, Germany; a central activist in the famous Interkultura Centro Herzberg. She graduated from ELTE University in Budapest; worked as a professional language teacher in English, Hungarian, and Esperanto; and wrote a grammar exercise book.
  • Goal: Acquire Level B2 (strong intermediate level of language use). At this level, the students must already have Level B1. All those who wish to improve their language use are welcome, but especially those who already or will soon teach Esperanto. The course will also prepare for the exams at the end. Zsófia adapts the course to the actual level of the participants, all the while providing material at a higher level for those who wish to pass the C1 exam.
  • Presentation: The course will concentrate on increasing vocabulary and every-day expressions, and their use in conversation and naration. The course will look at all the important grammar, and will prepare the students for the exam with exercises, written tasks, games, conversations, and roll-playing.

COURSE A2-B1 « On the threshold of language » (21 - 27 April 2018)

  • Teacher : Christophe CHAZAREIN is an activist at Esperanto Cultural Center of Toulouse. He has been teaching Esperanto since 2006. In 2009, he spent one year in Białystok as a European volunteer, and received training in Esperanto at the University of Poznań. Since 2011, teaching - Esperanto and Occitan - is his main activity. In 2014, he created Ins’eo, an association whose aim is to promote more modern teaching practices, and to encourage the professionalization of the teaching of Esperanto.
  • Objective: Acquire level B1 according to this definition. Those who register at this level must have at least an A2 level. This course is for people who wish to acquire a sufficient level to communicate in most situations where Esperanto can serve (travel, international meetings, correspondence, etc ...).
  • Presentation of the course: Learning a language is much more than assimilating rules of grammar and vocabulary. It means developing your ability to communicate - that is, to listen, read, write ... and above all speak! If you have bases in Esperanto, but you feel too limited and if you want to give yourself the means to use it in most situations during travel, Esperanto congresses or on the Internet, then this course is for you. This course also aims at preparing for the oral and written tests of the ILEI-UEA level B1 and B2 exams.

COURSE A1-A2 « Starting out together! » (21 - 27 Apvril 2018)

  • Teacher : Marion QUENUT has taught Occitan in Toulouse since 2011. Passionate about languages (she knows eight), she has created and administers since 2006 the site toulangues.org, the Toulous portal of the languages of the world. She began her apprenticeship in Esperanto in 2006 in a course with the Esperanto Cultural Center in Toulouse. Since then she has regularly organized courses for this association. She received a certificate of level C1 in Esperanto.
  • Objective: Acquire level A2 according to this definition. This course is for beginners and people who have already started learning Esperanto but still see themselves as beginners.
  • Manual: There is no recommended manual, the course will be based on new media (intended for a new manual in project). André Andrieu’s dictionaire pratique (16 €, published by SAT-Amikaro) is recommended.
  • Presentation of the course: This course will focus on oral communication from the beginning, but all the skills of the exam are worked during the week with the help of games and theatrical activities.

International CEFR Exams (28 April 2018)

  • Levels: The UEA Examinations Commission has agreed to the organisation of Esperanto exams of levels B1, B2 and C1. You can take the full test (written + oral) or only one part. It is possible to change the level on site. The minimum age is 14 years. The written and oral parts must be held at the same level.
  • Registration: For CEFR registration and prices, see below.
  • Diploma: After successful completion of the examination, the state-recognised Hungarian Examination Centre ITK will issue your diploma in 4 languages. This diploma is recognised in Europe and other countries outside Europe.
  • About CEFR: See the rules of examination. See wikipedia. org about the CEFR framework. See the specimens of examination (in Esperanto). See about a new French law - a chance for Esperanto!

Opinions of former participants 2016. (2015 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011):
Trop court a été, à mon goût, notre séjour chez vous. Ce lieu est magnifique et vous nous avez laissé beaucoup de liberté, y compris pour vous rendre quelque service. Les cours de Christophe, également nous ont beaucoup appris. Merci à vous tous. Affectueusement à vous deux.
À bientôt ! Miŝa
Karaj amikoj. Dankon Jannick pro tiu bela semajno en Greziljono dank’al via laboro kaj klopodoj por plezurigi la partoprenintojn. Per tiu mesaĝo mi dankas ankaŭ ĉiujn teamanojn en la kastelo kiuj multe laboris. La kultura programo estis tre riĉa. Hejme mi estas kaj mi kompreneble havas multajn farontaĵojn por plulerni nian lingvon kaj alporti viglajn ideojn kaj agadojn al nia movado. Ni plu fosu nian sulkon!
Plej amike, Jean-Claude
