What level German do you speak?

Near native...I would say intermediate to advanced

Where did you learn to speak German?

German parents, visits to Germany as a child, Grandpa who lived with us and didn't speak English and could invent endings to Grimm and Andersen's fairytales. I studied for 3 months in Vienna, taught as a Fulbright Teaching Assistant in high schools in Graz for a year, and studied translation at the Institute fior Translators and Interpreters

Why are you interested in attending this Meetup?

Would like to speak in German about things I read and also share children's books I'm trying to translate from German!

What would you like to see the group do?

Have discussions about books and other topics, enjoy good food and coffee together. If you live near Cuyahoga Falls, visit the Blue Door Cafe, which is my brother's German bakery... a great place to eat if I do say so!


Ich habe deutsche Eltern, lese gerne Deutsch und moechte mich gerne ueber Buecher und Kultur unterhalten. Ich gebe Nachhilfe in Deutsch. Auch bin ich Musiker und habe in Wien studiert und in Graz Oesterreich Uebersetzen studiert.
