What we're about

German conversation and camaraderie
Polyglots is the only Toastmasters International Club in the United States that conducts its meetings in German.
If you speak German and want to keep it fresh or improve it, visit our club.
Our membership consists of native Germans as well as adults who learned German as a second language.
Some of our members belong to other Toastmasters clubs, but just as many never heard of Toastmasters before joining.
We have members young and older alike, who are fluent in German. Others struggle to say a correct sentence. It doesn't matter! We are not a language school. We are a place where you can speak and listen to German and, above all, have a good time!

Visit our website at www.polyglotstoastmasters.org/ and follow our Twitter account (@PolyglotsTM)‎!
