Welcome to the Esperanto website for Geneva and nearby Regions! 

We hope your visit means that you are interested in learning Esperanto. It is very easy to learn - the grammar has only 16 rules, there are no exceptions and it is very logical. It is also great fun and a wonderful way of meeting people of all nationalities without having any language barriers. Despite its simplicity, Esperanto is a very versatile language.

Our conversation group, The Monday Group (la Lunda Grupo) meets every Monday at 18h00 in the restaurant "Le Galicia", 21 rue des Gares, Geneva (behind the Cornavin Station opposite the Montbrillant Post Office). 

If you would like information about Esperanto and hear it spoken, everyone is welcome - whether they are beginners, fluent speakers or anyone who would like to improve their spoken Esperanto.

Message from Sans family :

Our family is happy to invite you to the 17th Kasta-Festo.   We welcome all Esperantists in Geneva and the region and even from further away, irrespective of age or language level.  The main aim of the evening is that participants discover and use Esperanto together with Esperantists in Geneva. 

With the Kasta-Festo, our family wishes to create friendly get-togethers - eating together and listening to diverse presentations and to exchange the latest news about our movement.
