Macclesfield

German 1

Leader: Kate Bonson

The members of German Group 1 meet twice a month on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays at 2pm - 4pm.

We currently have 12 members and for practical reasons there is a limit of 12 members. Our members have a range of language abilities, we are very informal, and the content and format of each meeting varies. The only certainty is that we (attempt to) carry out our proceedings in German.

At each meeting a different member is leader for the day; this person decides what we do for that meeting. This could be reading a piece taken from a book or magazine, or from the internet, or listening to a broadcast (via iPod) of an item of interest, or simply talking about a selected topic.

As a way to get our brains 'plugged in', we often start with "Was gibt es Neues?" ("What's new?"), where each person reports on something that has occurred recently in his or her own life.

This group is suitable for anyone with some conversational German.

DEUTSCHE GRUPPE 1

Die Mitglieder der deutschen Gruppe 1 treffen sich zweimal in Monat, am 2. und 4. Dienstag des Monats, von 2 bis 4 Uhr.

Zur Zeit haben wir 12 Mitglieder, und es ist praktisch, nicht mehr als 12 Mitglieder zu haben. Unsere Mitglieder haben verschiedene Sprachfähigkeiten, wir sind sehr informell, und das Thema jedes Treffens ist verschieden. Sicher versuchen wir alles auf Deutsch zu tun.

Jedes Treffen hat einen/-e anderen/e Leiter/in, der/die entscheidet, was wir an jenem Tag tun. Es kann das Lesen eines Artikels aus einem Buch, oder von einer Zeitschrift, oder vom Internet sein. Es kann auch das Hören einer Sendung (durch iPod) sein, oder wir sprechen nur, über etwas das uns interessiert.

Um unseren Kopf anzuregen, fangen wir oft mit “Was gibt es Neues?” an, wo jede Person berichtet, was neulich in ihrem eigenen Leben geschehen ist.

Die Gruppe eignet sich für jeden der mindestens etwas Deutsch sprechen kann.

Koordinatorin: Kate Bonson
