German Conversation

We meet some Monday afternoons at the Leader's home.

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.

Elections in Germany have given us plenty to talk about recently. We have also looked at the culture of hunting, the surprising Nazi origins of animal rights, local dialects, the flight of a German cosmonaut in 1978 and an aversion to turnips…

Whilst our aim is probably to speak better German, we also enjoy comparing our personal experiences of German-speaking countries and learning more about our impressive European neighbour. We don’t mind dropping into English if necessary.

We have links with the local Deutsches Kreis (German circle).

New members welcome.
