Have you ever heard of the two main Esperanto organisations, UEA and TEJO? Are you curious about what they do and if they are worth joining. I wrote an article (in Esperanto of course, but perhaps I could translate it to English) explaining why I think they are worth joining. So click on the link if you are interested in practicing your Esperanto and learning more about the community.

This is my last year in TEJO because of my age :(... Esperanto is more than only a language, it is a social movement and a rasing of a modern international culture. Those organizations are one of the best way to be updated whit events around the world, and to be an active part of that movement. I like reading the magazines Esperanto and Kontakto, (a high level of Esperanto with many real-world stuffs in the language I love...) Mi dirus: Se vi estas malpli aĝa ol 35, nepre aliĝu al TEJO, cetere se eblas, aliĝu ankaŭ al UEA.

I've been a member of the UEA for 3-4 years now. I'm (a little bit) too old for TEJO, but as of this year I'm a TEJO patron.

This is the first time I have ever heard of these, but because I am a beginner I can't read it, so would anyone mind telling me?

I took the time to translate his post to English -- more as an exercise than anything -- but it occurred to me that @rapn21 might either not want me re-posting it here or prefer to post it himself.

In short, UEA (Universala Esperanto-Asocio) does cool things to support Esperanto, particularly by sponsoring the yearly "Universala Kongreso" gathering. TEJO (Tutmonda Esperantista Junulara Organizo) is geared toward "junulara" (young people) and while I've heard a whole bunch of good stuff about it, lets just say for me "being under 35" was a while ago ;).

Basically UEA is the World Esperanto Association, the main organisation for promoting Esperanto and supporting the community. TEJO is its youth wing and both of them are excellent organisations that do a lot of good work. I would recommend everyone to join (if you are under 35, joining UEA automatically makes you a member in TEJO).

Both groups have translated their websites into English
