German/Spanish/Engli­sh/French | Experimental Meetup | From 19.00

Hi Everyone,

So, how about another mixed language meetup? I keep getting asked about them, so let's organize another one. =) 

We will be speaking and practising a mix of languages, mainly Spanish, German and English. As for French, as mentioned before, I don't know exactly how many possible teachers and learners are going to show up. [Though I know we have plenty of both in the group.]

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 my co-hosts/co-organizers. Don't worry about breaking conversations, we're definitely not deciding the fate of the universe. ;)

Please note: An RSVP / being on the attendance list is required for attending this event [this does NOT include being on the waiting list]. The event organizers reserve the right to screen the RSVP list. Also 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.]

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Cheers,

A+

    I liked the meetup, Starbucks was a little loud so It was hard to hear people sometimes. But other then that, it was great. Thank you very much to all the hosts :)

    Hi guys, just a very simple and practical question: this is the first time I participate, is it a way to recognize the group? Did you "book" one of the 2 upper floors? By my experience, usually Starbucks central at this time is pretty "crowded"...

    Hi! first of all, thanks to the organizers...to organise the event!
    Just a question... why is it limited? A couple of people will end up not showing up anyway. So many events are not limited and work just fine. (bigger meeting place?) Some people cannot confirm until one hour before (Impossible to say when work is finished)
    or even to say 3 days in advance if they will be in Zurich that day... Ok I speak about my situation here, lol But I cant be the only one like this :)
    Again, thanks for the organizers... and hopefully see you!

      Hi Pablo, thanks for your comment. =)
      I know that there are many questions as to why the events have limited attendance, why RSVPs are mandatory, why we use Starbucks central and so on... To explain the reasons would be too long for a comment here, but let's just say that we've been experimenting with the options for a long time now, and the way we do things is a result of what we have learnt from our past experiences, so there are some very important reasons. If you'd like more specifics you can come find one of the hosts and speak in person...

      Cheers!

    Heyy,
    I would really love to come once to those meetings! I speak all four languages and I love to mix them up :D (especially French and Spanish!!) but so far the event has always been full and I never had the chance to come... What about doing the meeting more regular, like every Monday, so that everybody can show up once?

    Un abrazo et à bientôt!

      Hey Jelena, if you sign up for the event as soon as it is announced or the first couple of days you usually will not have trouble finding a spot. You just have to be quick. Also I doubt the frequency of the event can change because the group also has other meetups and the organizers have a life too. :) But usually if you really want to come, if you get in touch directly with Ahoo she would probably give you a spot if it is possible.

    Hey everyone, this event is pretty over-booked, so if anyone on the attendance list thinks they might drop out, please do it now so that people in the waiting list can have a chance to attend.

    @Jakub- I will try my best!
    Question, how do you know if you can come?
    I signed up yesterday have no clue if it got accepted?

      Hi Moni, welcome to the group. =)

      As to what you need to bring, depends on how you like to practice languages mostly. A dictionary for your language of choice, and something to take notes on, is generally a good idea. Some members also bring news articles to discuss, or their homework if they're taking courses, or something they've written on their own... It's all up to yourself basically.

      As for joining the event. On the right side of this page you can see the attendance list. Members can join the event when they have a reserved spot, meaning on the attendance list and not on the wait-list. You're currently on the wait-list, but since it's your first time I'm going to change that and give you a spot anyway. ;)

      Cheers!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
