Contact Leader German Conversation

The present group has a pretty good standard of spoken German, without feeling constrained to be accurate. We also have a native speaker in the group to keep us up to the mark. We have 7 or 8 members, although not all can be present at each weekly meeting.

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. This became a bit more formal over the last year and a half when our meetings took place on Zoom, but the material helped to raise our standards.

Now that we are beginning to meet face-to-face once more, conversation can become more spontaneous and more relaxed. We have been able to meet in the garden with a run of dry weather in September. We should have enough space at future indoor meetings for comfortable distancing, but Zoom will very likely remain our safety net.

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. If you would like to join us, please get in touch with the Group Leader as given in the Newsletter or via the Contact above.
