Publié le 26 février 2020 Mis à jour le 23 mars 2020

Saluton!* What is Esperanto? How many people in the world speak it? Could Esperanto become the new post-Brexit lingua franca in Europe? Where to learn it online? Are there native Esperanto speakers? How to meet people speaking it at ULB or VUB? How to travel the world with Esperanto?

After a short conference and debate about the importance of Esperanto, an immersive flash course will be given, followed by the kick-off of the new ULB-VUB Café Esperanto.
