"I will donate radio controlled CASIO watch WVA-105H to you but only if 1 you will master the basics of Esperanto."
— Jan Popelka, ĉeĥa esperantisto
Deadline to sign up by: 31st December 2007
0 people signed up, 1 more was needed
Rules are simple - to master Esperanto basics:
0) You live in North America so the radio signal reception will work for you (I received the watch as a gift but I am too far:)
1) You will honestly assure me that you have never learned Esperanto
2) You will learn the basics of Esperanto till the end of this year, preferably by completing the 12 lessons of Kurso de Esperanto: http://www.cursodeesperanto.com.br/bazo/...
3) You will prove your knowledge by a real-time chat with me
4) If more people fulfill the task only one will get the watch (either randomly drawn or a winner of some simple contest I would create) and others (I am not rich so let's say first 20) will get some smaller presents relating to Esperanto and/or the Czech Republic.
5) If no one fulfills by the end of the year the offer is still valid - however the watch will be given immediately to the first one.
For details, pictures and discussion see http://www.ipernity.com/doc/popojan/1004...
The watch is radio controlled from Fort Collins (USA) up to the range of 600-2,000 miles. It is not bribe but a reward and you will soon realize that quite insignificant compared to the Esperanto language itself.
