An additional program is in preparation for newbies, with games, conversation circles and presentations of the Esperanto movement and culture. Moreover, in the program you will find several activities marked as suitable for beginners of Esperanto.


During the event, so called “angels” will help to guide newbies (those who have never attended an international Esperanto event). Angels will have a name-tag with a different color and will be introduced on the first evening. Angels can help new attendees to navigate through IJK: suggest useful parts of the program to attend, explain how things work, discuss problems, etc. Angels are usually experienced Esperanto speakers who are familiar with events like this one. Don’t hesitate to talk to an angel if you have a question or a difficulty, because they are there to help you!
