The "30 Golden Hours" project was launched in Italy in 2021, in cooperation with the Italian Esperanto Institute.
Its aim is to teach Esperanto and its culture to teachers currently working in Italian high schools through a video course of 20 hours, with additional 10 hours of independent study.
After this introduction, they are in turn ready to teach the material to their own students.
A simple and logic tongue as Esperanto allows a clearer understanding of what constitutes a language and how it works, with possible propaedeutic effects on a range of different subjects.

di apprendimento e aiuto nello studio di altre lingue (Esperanto: Easy to Learn and Helpful in Studying Other Languages)".
The project is currently been adapted to other cultural contexts. Report in the FIPLV Newsletter of July 2023.
