Fluent in reading German (e.g., novels of Thomas Mann, Fontane, Goethe) but little little conversation ability due to being self taught on the U.S. I would love to be able to speak German, not just read it. Passive vocabulary is very large. Active speaking ability is small. I would like to remedy that--having recently returned from a week in Berlin.
Hi, I'm new to meetup groups, but now that I've attended two meetings of the German Language group I realize this is a great way to practice German and meet interesting people. I am an editor/publisher with a small business publishing company.
