The Cseh method of Esperanto instruction

7 Jun

I have been reading Wendy Heller’s biography of Lidia Zamenhof. She was the daughter of Ludwik Zamenhof. the founder of Esperanto.

On page 88 I came across a description of the Cseh method of Esperanto teaching. Founded by Andrei Cseh, a Romanian Catholic priest, the Cseh method was designed to teach Esperanto to large groups of people without textbooks. The instruction was delivered in Esperanto and involved question and response. It is claimed that this was a highly efficient and effective method for Esperanto instruction.

I was pleased to find this video of Andrei Cesh demonstrating his method:

Happy Zamenhof day!

To give you an idea of the worldwide Esperanto community. Here, in Esperanto, is a video of a Zamenhof Day celebration held a few years ago in Brazil:
