As a conversation group, we ask that members are not beginners and have had some experience of making themselves understood in German. We will be a mixed ability group – so yes, plenty of mistakes but the object is to attune our ear and thinking to German rather than English. We will be encouraged to speak entirely in German (except during our tea break) by our good fortune in having one or two fluent speakers come along for moral support. Some material will be circulated by email before the meeting if members wish to prepare something on a chosen topic with a nudge towards useful vocabulary, but otherwise are encouraged to bring along material of their own choosing.
Meetings are held in the Lounge at the rear of St Thomas’ Hall, Holtspur, starting at 1.45pm for about an hour and a half, on the first Tuesday of the month.
