I have just watched the video where Evildea ( a guy who has an esperanto youtube channel with huge numbers of short films in esperanto and who occasionally shows up here - just google Evildea Esperanto youtube) has said he is only going to be making films every other day from now on but they will all have english subtitles.

This might help a lot of people who think he talks too fast for them to understand (actually I found if you stick with for a while after watching about ten to fifteen of them there is a sudden click and it magically starts becoming totally normal and comprehensible) .

What this does mean is than beginners can get exposed to the sound of naturally spoken esperanto much quicker and you don't need a dictionary to look up unfamiliar words so often, so with a bit of luck your vocab will grow naturally.

I don't know how often Evildea visits the forums, but as I said on the video and his fb page, this is a great idea!

Lol. Mi supozas ke Evildea ne estas via dio.

Ne. La vera Dio estas mia Dio. Mi ne ŝatas kiam li diras tion kaj mi esperas ke unu tago li ne diros tion denove. :(

Tamen, li ŝajnas esti bonega instruisto de Esperanto.

Well...... he talks about interesting topics but he loves the F word and a few others so that might be an issue.

It sounds similar but is not the english word but actually a much milder esperanto word , but still it is swearing. Same stuff i hear in playgrounds, streets and cinemas all the time but still forwarned and all

I missed that one and am not entirely sure i can decipher what it is supposed to mean ...but i have an idea so i am not going to ask for clarification, lest some take offense or duo rules get broken. But yeah, Kaja is cool too.

Yeah, you've got a point. Since it came up as a sub-topic I figured I'd give it a mention. Don't remember which video it was but it stuck with me (there was acting involved)

Just tought homie deserved a shout for his creative word-play

If you are a parent I would take a look first, he swears a little bit and the end of each video comes with an amusing and improbable threat to you if you don't watch the next video. So depends on the age of the kids. I would have said maybe 12 and overs but i don't know , some people have different ideas about what is acceptable and it depends on your style of parenting.

EDIT: actually i have changed my mind, any parents would probably want to watch each one and make up your own mind. I have just seen one that might have made my teenage kids laugh ( a lot) but IMHO it definitely would not have been suitable for their slightly younger siblings.

Mem pli utila estus Esperantaj subtitoloj, por kompreni la vortojn kaj pensi en Esperanto.

Ĉiuokaze, mi dankas al Evildea por fari la filmetojn!

My favorite video of his is the one about kangaroos ("Stultaj Demandoj kaj Laser-okaj Kangauroj" or something like that). It has some swearing, but the story is funny and the vocabulary is repetitive and simple, since he's just ranting about how kangaroos for a while.

Evildea diris: "do ŝajnas ke nia tuta lando [Aŭstralio] estas regata de kanguruoj: jes, nia prezidanto estas kanguruo".
