Here I am again, back in frigid Winnipeg after two awesome weeks spent in Germany.

One of those weeks was spent at an Esperanto event called the Junulara Esperantista Semajno (JES: http://jes.pej.pl/2012/) which, quite frankly, could squash anyone's objection to Esperanto. I had a wonderful time speaking Esperanto all week with people of all walks of life, all ages, all origins, all lifestyles, etc., including several very accomplished polyglots. (I also met Benny there, by the way.)

I gave two presentations in Esperanto -- one on efficient language learning with Sprachprofi and another on my own about Qu├ębec French. And this, I'm happy to say, after only 2 months of relaxed learning of the language -- it's certainly an easy language to learn and play with (and awesome for anyone wishing to add another language to their roster without a sweat ;). I would truly recommend the event (and the Esperanto language and movement as a whole) to anyone and everyone. I think the JES allowed me to move from a B1 to a strong B2. I wish there were opportunities to use it here in Winnipeg. There are Esperanto groups elsewhere in the country, but not here.

A radio show about the JES is presented
here -- you can hear me and Sprachprofi offer greetings at about 5:45 into the first part.

I started Pimsleur Romanian. On to CD 2. Just acquainting myself with Romanian, a language I'd never looked at before.

On a non-linguistic note, I was having fun learning a song last night and I thought I'd post it here (Going To A Town, by Rufus Wainwright). I tend to be self-conscious about singing in public, so I'm trying to push myself to make more of such recordings public.

There is no Edit button allowing me to change the name the log or its first post (or any subsequent post for that matter). Consequently, I will eventually need to create a different log. Which is too bad considering this one had received over 97 000 views.

For the time being, I will be writing on the tandem log I share with Sprachprofi: TAC 2013 Tandem Winnipeg-Berlin
