  • Supera kurso por personoj kies nivelo de Esperanto laŭ la KER-sistemo estas C1-C2. La kurso celas personojn kiuj jam sufiĉe bone parolas kaj flue legas en Esperanto. Ĝi enhavos elementojn lingvajn, kulturajn, movadhistoriajn kaj literaturajn. La kursanoj rigardos tiklajn problemojn de la Esperanta gramatiko, serĉos proprajn erarojn (kaj korektos ilin!), kleriĝos pri la Esperanta kulturo kaj la historio de la movado. La kurso disvolviĝos laŭ diversaj metodoj, individuaj kaj
    grupaj, atenton ricevos ĉiuj kapabloj (aŭskultado kaj parolado, legado kaj skribado), ksterlecione ĉiuj laboros etgrupe pri komuna projekto kiun oni prezentos al la aliaj en la fino. Gravan parton okupos la Esperanta literaturo – estos ebloj por iom gustumi originalaĵojn kaj ekscii pli multe pri niaj verkistoj, krome eblos ankaŭ interŝanĝi opiniojn pri la verkoj kiujn oni jam legis kaj eĉ mem verki rakonton aŭ poemon.
