The present group has a pretty good standard of spoken German, without feeling constrained to be accurate. We are lucky in having two native speakers in our group, one from the north and one from the south of German-speaking lands.

Using material found on the internet we are able to discuss such topics as customs and festivals, history, German speaking minorities, food and drink, places to visit and peculiarities of the language itself, indeed any topics members like to contribute.

During Lockdown when permitted the Group has met outside during warmer months up to late October. When it cooled off, we moved indoors via Zoom, with meetings having 2 sessions of 40 minutes each. We have found this works well and plan to continue this as we have too many members for the garden meetings. However when permitted these will resume.

Whilst our aim is to speak better German, we also enjoy comparing our personal experiences of German-speaking countries and learning more about our impressive European neighbour. We are lucky to have our native-speakers in the group,but we don’t mind lapsing into English if necessary!
