Hi Amikema!
Thanks for your posts. I must totally agree that "Immersion is the key to
mastering any language!"
I have built up a wonderful collection of learning books in Esperanto, and
I have worked my way through some of them. Also books of non-fiction and
I cannot take credit for that blog entry. It was copied from:

Yesterday I finally picked up a TV and DVD/VHS player attachment, so I can
start viewing a small collection of DVDs and VHS tapes.

I would guess I am at an "advanced" beginner stage, or possibly
intermediate. So I am going to check out your sources of materials given below. I am
especially look for DVD disks on or about Esperanto, to help in the
learning process.

Even though I am almost 68, I am still working almost full time. But I am
trying to organize my time more now for learning Esperanto and getting
active in writing. (I am a member of UEA and Esperanto-us organizations, and
now subscribe to Komencanto from Russia, so I have plenty of materials to
read. Also several dictionaries, etc.)

Eventually I would like to be able to translate from my own (or other
person's writings) from English into Esperanto. There are more difficulties

I want also to see about learning to teach Esperanto and I think there is
an international organization for that, with appropriate educational
materials for teaching available.
The organization is called _www.Springboard2Languages.org_
( I have a full set of their materials. I also have
an updated version on the Esperanto teacher Handbook, which I can send to
you, if you are interested.

Anyway, I want to thank you for your emails in English and Esperanto.
Ne dankinde, kara. Estas mia plezuro helpi vin.

Thank you,
Jerry Wells
