What we're about
This is a playgroup for German speaking children to provide an opportunity for them to speak German with other children and not just their German-speaking parent(s). We are not a school nor do we exist to teach your children German. Parents bare the responsibility of raising German-speaking children. Recognizing that not both parents of German-speaking children are German speakers themselves, the intention is to provide an environment where German is the primary language being spoken at meetups. It has also become an opportunity for native Germans or those with a strong connection to the language and culture to meet and celebrate German cultural events.
This is not a group for those wishing to simply introduce themselves or their children to the German language, but rather for established speakers wishing to speak or perfect their German.
In warm weather, we meet at playgrounds and other fun outdoor places. In cold weather members with houses large enough volunteer to host. And sometimes we take advantage of fun indoor Milwaukee places like the Domes, indoor playgrounds, or Betty Brinn's.
