Warrington

German

Group Leader is Barbara Phoenix

If it is Monday, we learn a language and see old and new friends.

Wenn es Montag ist, lernen wir eine Sprache und sehen wir alte und neue Freunde.

The English language is a survivor. Each wave of immigrants be they Romans, Anglo-Saxons, French, Indians, Poles (ET’s family?) brings new words, which our language just absorbs and anglicizes. Thus we have a language rich in synonyms.

So, if you look again at the first two paragraphs you should find very few completely alien words and, even then, you may think of something similar in English: for example “Sprache” and “speech”.

If you recognise some German, from however long ago, come along and you will be surprised how much you have actually retained. Let us stimulate your memory and introduce you to more.

We have two groups, which meet on alternate Mondays at 10.30 in the Lounge at Bold Street Church:

The Tutored Group is taught by an ex English teacher with the help of a textbook. Whilst we aim not simply to repeat the same work each year, we do revise work in September, then move on.

However, if you’ve never studied German, you will need to do some basic preparation to avoid being overwhelmed from the start. Please contact me as soon as possible via this page for information about the textbook we use, and names of helpful websites.

The Intermediate Group sessions have contributions from many of its members with different activities within each meeting. We acknowledge our need to include more conversational German, so would be particularly pleased if anyone who speaks German, or has lived in a German-speaking country, felt able to join us.

You could, like some of us, attend both groups: the Tutored to reassure and revise; the Intermediate to challenge yourself.
