Esperanto Explained

I am surprised that I have not made a post about this before, but the best video that I have seen so far about the constructed international auxiliary language Esperanto and its creator L. L. Zamenhof is by the YouTube channel Human Interests and is called Esperanto Explained:

Esperanto Explained

I am surprised by how well Human Interests did with this video compared to most videos that I have seen about Esperanto.

A Man Talking About Esperanto Courses | Talking To A Former Classmate

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I forgot most of my dreams from last night.

Dream 1

This dream involved a large man complaining / talking to someone (maybe a woman) about the need for maybe high quality beginners Esperanto audio language courses like the Pimsleur Language Programs et cetera, and maybe some other types of Esperanto courses for beginners that gives a good overview of the language and can help people improve their listening and speaking skills et cetera.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream other than me wondering if the man knew about the Duolingo Esperanto course and Kurso De Esperanto et cetera.

Dream 2

This dream took place during the day, maybe outside The D High School, but I am not sure.

I remember talking to a former classmate of mine about our lives and the lives of some of our former classmates, and I remember our former male classmate AM being mentioned and / or talked to.

I remember it being said that AM was married, had a kid, worked in the sports medicine job field, and was doing pretty good in life.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Moment? | My Coworker JB | Esperanto | The B Van

I got awakened by my alarms twice with clear dreams on my mind but I went back to sleep each time without recording them, and I did the same after this so now most of my dreams are forgotten except for a few dream fragments.

Dream 1

This dream possibly involved Moment (Lost Truth) but I could be wrong, and that is all that I can remember of this possible dream.

A Blanket For My Former Classmate CH

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the night and I was inside my parent’s house, and my mom told me that my former female classmate CH and maybe my male cousin ME were learning Esperanto or Spanish and maybe Duolingo was one of the services / apps that they were using to learn the language but I am not sure.

My mom then handed me a blanket and she told me to give it to my former classmate CH who was at The E House spending the night which did not make sense to me even in the dream because that house is abandoned now, but I assumed that maybe she just needed somewhere to stay for the night.

I guess it was a somewhat cool night and so my mom thought that giving my former classmate CH a blanket to use for the night would be a good idea, and so I walked outside to The E House to give the blanket to her.

When I entered the yard of The E House I noticed that the screen door and main door were open in the front of the house, I knocked anyway, and on a couch on the right side of the living room I saw my former classmate CH sleeping and she already had a blanket.

She did not hear me knocking and so I said her name several times but she still did not hear me, and so I slowly entered the house speaking out-loud to let her know what I was doing and who I was until she finally woke up.

I told her why I was there but she told me that she already had a blanket that she got from maybe one of her aunts who she said by name (probably a nickname) but I did not recognize the name, and so she did not need the blanket but she thanked me.

I left the blanket there even though I wanted to bring it back, just in case, and when I returned to my parent’s house I told my mom.

Later my mom asked me to go get the blanket, but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was in the back employee area of the old D Tourist Center or BP Tourist Center that I briefly worked at part-time back when I was in high school, and I seemed to be working or doing something and this area was not part of the Tourist Center.

A woman with light-color skin with long yellow hair who was a tourist entered the Tourist Center area needing help but the assumed Tourist Center employee was busy helping someone else so I walked over to help the woman.

The woman needed directions and maybe a map, she was in a rush and speaking quickly so I did not know where she needed to go or which map she needed exactly, and so I tried to find one and I tried to figure out how to help her while hoping that an employee would come help her soon.

But I woke up.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day at my former male classmate AM’s parent’s house during maybe a holiday, and my former classmate AM was there visiting his family I assume and I assume that I was not in the dream.

Some of his family members probably arrived to visit, including maybe an uncle with light-color skin with dark slicked back hair wearing a suit who was possibly involved in the mafia, and my former classmate AM was not comfortable with or happy about that assumed uncle visiting because of his assumed mafia ties and some other personal reasons of my former classmate AM that were not revealed.

My former classmate AM told him mother that he did not want his assumed uncle at their house and he wanted him to leave, his mother was against this, and so they argued about it.

The next thing that I remember is maybe my former classmate AM and this uncle being at W Park in the back parking lot near maybe an empty float for a parade, the uncle was trying to talk to my former classmate AM, but my former classmate AM did not want to talk and he yelled at his uncle about things from the past involving why he does not like his uncle.

The uncle was trying to let my former classmate AM know that he cares about him and the family, but I woke up as they talked.

The United States Of Languages: An Analysis Of Duolingo Usage State-By-State

The Making Duolingo Blog has an interesting article about their analysis of some of last year’s language learning patterns on Duolingo that I read called The United States Of Languages: An Analysis Of Duolingo Usage State-By-State:

https://making.duolingo.com/the-united-states-of-languages-an-analysis-of-duolingo-usage-state-by-state

It was nice of Duolingo to release that data because it is interesting learning about some of the language learning patterns on Duolingo, I was able to predict some of the outcomes, but some of the data surprised me.
