How much German do you know?

I studied German for four years in high school and then studied at the Goethe Institut in Prien, Germany. I lived in Germany for a few months and in Austria for two years. When I lived there, I was fairly fluent and could communicate pretty easily, but in the past few years, I haven't practiced it at all, and I can tell that I've forgotten a lot of vocabulary!

Have you ever been to Germany or lived there?

Yes... I've been to Germany several times and studied and lived there for a few months... I also lived in Austria and had to get used to the different dialects there...

What activities would you enjoy with this group?

Anything that involves practicing German and doesn't cost a lot of money!


I've lived in Richmond for a long time and am just looking for some ways to meet people and to practice my German. My grandmother was from Germany and lived in a little village near the border of Poland and Czech Republic.

    Hey Jill! Did you survive the orienteering? I ran for a whole hour and I'm beat! What fun! Oh, I see you do the German meetups too. Maybe I'll do that as well. Good to meet you.

    Glad you're joining. Diversity is key to an interesting group. Right now, we have some vertical people, usually have a few horizontal people, and a couple of leaners. I think you're the first perpendicular. Seriously, welcome to the group.
