Porthcawl

German

Led by John Murdoch, the group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 10.30 at Porthcawl Rugby Club. In the past we have had a Foundation group and an Advanced group. However, the two groups now meet together.

******************************** Meetings cancelled until July at least due to Coronavirus *********************************

We practise basic conversation skills that would be useful when visiting Germany, as well as discussing historical and cultural aspects of German-speaking countries. The second part of each session consists of reading story books designed for learners, to see the language in context.

Anyone, with just a little prior knowledge of the language, however rusty, is welcome to join this group.
