The film was taken during a summer camp in Europe. Some children were fortunate enough to travel to Family Esperanto Meetings several times, play in Esperanto, and truly enjoy the experience of gaining fluency in Esperanto.

Esperantists from birth
About 99 percent of Esperanto speakers choose as teenagers or adults to start learning the International Language Esperanto. In contrast, I spoke with my daughter, Vered, in Esperanto for a few years to age four, but circumstances proved that I could not provide the support needed. Some Esperantists marry a partner, often after meeting them at international conferences, and teach their children Esperanto and one or two other languages. Most of the children in this film fall into this category.
