Esperanto, Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo is an Esperanto course, consisting of 15 video lessons (of 30 minutes each), intended for individual or group study, plus a 16th lesson with a summary, history and original music. The pedagogically based entertaining story line makes learning Esperanto easier and more fun. Each lesson is presented entirely in Esperanto and consists of three parts: introduction, drama, recapitulation.
NOTE: This course was originally prepared in VHS format on eight video cassettes, with accompanying printed text and exercises. A DVD version is now available consisting of four DVD disks with four lessons each, plus two CDs; one of the lesson texts in PDF format, and one of the accompanying exercises, also in PDF format. Both versions are available from the Esperanto-USA bookstore ( http://esperanto-usa.org/retbutiko/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath... ), a non-profit 501c3 educational charity.
In each lesson, an introduction by a teacher offers a brief review of the previous lesson and outlines the main grammatical points to be covered in the current lesson. On the video tapes, this is entirely in Esperanto; but on the DVDs subtitles for the words of the teacher are available in several languages: Esperanto, English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, German, and Japanese. Subtitles in other languages are in process of being added for other regions of the world.
The drama continuously builds interest in the character and intrigue for the many plot twists throughout the 15 lessons. The continuity of situation and character development of a television-style drama make students eager to follow the adventures of the Bonvolo family and their friends and acquaintances. The Bonvolo family is no ordinary family. The father, Georgo, La Bonvolo familio is a Greek philosopher and the mother, Filisa, a dancer. The harmony of this somewhat extraordinary family is upset when a young shepherd, complete with sheep, decides to take advantage of the Pasporta Servo and comes to stay. The resulting complications and misunderstandings provide the basis for fast-moving and lively story which will hold the attention of learners -- and of more experienced Esperanto speakers -- until the closing song in lesson 16.
To reinforce and practice the new material introduced in each lesson, the recapitulation by the "teacher" at the beginning and end of each lesson looks in detail at the principal grammatical points presented in the drama and prepares the learner for the written exercises which accompany the course. The written exercises, created by Stefan MacGill, complement the lessons and provide the reading and writing practice essential to the learning of any language.
Esperanto is used exclusively throughout the video; individual teachers will decide how much explanation to permit in the national language. The direct method -- exclusive use of the target language -- means the learner is exposed from the outset to Esperanto as it is spoken throughout the world. To this end the actors in Pasporto are drawn from various language backgrounds: Chinese, Croatian, Danish, English, Japanese, Hispanic and others.
