Toronto Esperanto Circle




We meet nearly every Monday on the 2nd floor of Loblaws, 60 Carlton Street, at the northwest corner of Carlton Street and Church Street, one block east of Yonge Street (College subway), from 18:00 to 19:00 to drink coffee and enjoy conversation in Esperanto. At 19:00 some of us go to one of the nearby restaurants to eat and continue the conversations.

All issues of our bulletin, La Torontano, are accessible to our members using Google Drive.

Esperanto Conversation for Beginners (ECB)

ECB is a different kind of meeting from our social meetings, the goal of which is to help beginners to feel comfortable speaking Esperanto, with the help of a few fluent Esperantists who speak slowly and clearly, but only in Esperanto (while beginners should feel free to use English words as needed). Check our calendar for dates, times, and other details.

Biblioteka Vespero (library evening)

From time to time we gather together at the home of one of the club members, which also serves as the library of our club, and there we discuss interesting issues, enjoy some fine refreshments and get to know each other better.
