As usual, let's get together on Tuesday to practise German and have some fun. =)
About The Advanced Discussion Tables:
As of the beginning of 2014, we have a new "feature" in our meetups for members who would like a bit of a more serious practice. Mind you, this does not mean that you have to have advanced language skills to join, only that you are serious about improving your skills.
Members who are interested in joining these tables, will prepare a theme or a subject of their own interest to discuss. How much you "prepare" is your own choice, what matters is that you have something to bring to the table. [Could be a book, a movie, something out of your profession or studies, your hobbies, or even a news article you skimmed through on the train.] So you don't really have to do homework for this, just have something on your mind to talk about.
Depending on the number of participants at the table, each person will have a specific amount of time to discuss their topic, so that everyone will have a chance to talk. After everyone has had their turn, if there is more time left, we can go back to whichever topic we'd like, and talk some more.
If you are interested in joining the advanced discussion tables, please come find me.
If you are a native German speaker, it would be fantastic if you could join the meetup and help us improve. Or if you know any native German speakers who are willing to help, please bring them along. With the growing number of our attendees, we are always in need of more native speakers.
If at any point during the meetup, you have a question, suggestion or need help with something, please feel free to come and talk to me [Ahoo] or one of my co-hosts. Don't worry about breaking conversations, we're definitely not deciding the fate of the universe. ;)
If you're planning on attending, please do us a favour and RSVP. We do not limit the number of RSVPs due to various reasons, including the fact that we never know how many seats we may have available to us at Starbucks. Therefore please keep in mind that when the group is large or the venue is crowded, there might be a "first come first serve" situation in regards to the seats. [This is rare, but could happen.]
