I am a native German from Amberg in the Oberpfalz and have lived in the U.S. for the past 22 years. I often miss being around other Europeans and want to keep up my native language.
These meetups are a good way for native German speakers to meet other people from their homeland and for non-native German speakers to really practice their speaking and comprehension. Furthermore, the people you meet come from so many different walks of life, that it is hard to run out of interesting topics to talk about.
