my name is Julia Underwood and I am the organiser of this group.
I am a qualified, native German language tutor, based in Milton Keynes. I teach German for school, business, travel and fun.
Five years ago, I set up "Speak German", now called "Treffpunkt Deutsch" to meet other Germans and German speaking people in the area. We have almost 150 members now and meet regularly to speak German. It is a lovely group with many German expats, native and near native speaker members, so the level of German is high.
To help people who are still learning the language, and need a little more support, I now created this group, "Practice German", 'the little sister of "Speak German'
The purpose of this group is to help you to practice and improve your German.
It is an informal group where I as the tutor will provide an exercise and a topic for us to do together as well as give you the opportunity to just chat in German. We meet once a month in the in the Shenley Inn, Shenley Church End. http://www.tobycarvery.co.uk/shenleychurche....
So, if you know a little German, if you spoke the language years ago and would like to get back into it, if you would like a little structure as well as meet and speak with other like minded people with the same interests, then this group is for you.
If you are actively learning German at the moment and want an extra opportunity to practice, you have found the right place.
Costs are £5 per meetup per person. You will benefit from my expertise as a professional tutor and I will help you learn as you practice. You will also get the chance to meet like minded people with the same goal; to improve their German.
If you are an advanced or native speaker of German check out "Treffpunkt Deutsch"
Important, please note: Only apply to join if you live in the Milton Keynes area, close enough to attend our meetings, speaking a little German already helps, please also add an actual profile photo of you, so I can look out for you when you come for your first Meetup.
I regret that requests which don't meet these requirements will be declined. This is to ensure only people with a genuine interest to practice German and who can come to our meetings, join. I have had to put this measure into place because I had too many people requesting to join who are not living in the UK or companies trying to sell or advertise. Thanks for understanding. Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions.
I am looking forward to meeting you soon.
Tschüss, bis bald

Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
