Ledbury & District

German Conversation

We meet every Monday afternoon at 2:30 in 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.

Recent topics have included German attitudes to timekeeping and daylight-saving, how the former East Germany is still a foreign country and the diminishing number of swallows in Austria - as elsewhere in Europe.

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 don’t mind lapsing into English if necessary.

New members welcome.
