German Language Practice Meetup

Come introduce yourself, play a game, and have some open conversation to help improve your use and understanding of German.  If you're a native speaker, it's a great way to help others and network.

You can be at any level of study, but at least a basic vocabulary and sense of grammar helps.  You may otherwise want to bring:  a notebook, a writing implement, and perhaps a German dictionary, book, magazine, or newspaper.  If you want to prepare, try to be able to answer in German at least some basic facts about yourself, like where you live, what you do for work, and anything interesting that happened to you recently.

We generally have a group conversation or game from 1:00 until 2:00 or 2:30, and then folks break up for one-on-one or smaller-group conversations.

    Unfortunately, we didn't learn of the barricades until we got there, and Meetup doesn't allow you to leave messages or email members from their mobile app. Victoria was able to leave word in her check in on how to get through the barricades, so six of us met and then moved to a quieter block.

    Between the drumming and the police blockades, I assume this is a no go?

    If you can, bring current German magazines and newspapers, and we will have a discussion about current events.

      I'll try to buy a couple on my way in, so if you're bringing in current editions of Der Spiegel or Zeitungen, let me know so I don't duplicate.
