This is a public Portland German language conversation group. We have the following regular meetups:
- Intermediate small-group conversation, first and third Saturdays of the month at Taborspace in SE Portland. This meetup is primarily for learners to practice casual conversation. Patient native speakers are welcome; beginning learners are welcome to come and listen but may find conversation difficult to follow.
- Women's conversation group, occasional Sunday afternoons: This is a meetup specifically for women at both native speaker and learner levels to chat with one another. It is usually at Fehrenbacher Hof in SW Portland, although meeting in private homes or other coffee shops is also a possibility.
In addition, members have gone on field trips (e.g. to the Weihnachtsmarkt at the Oregon Garden or to the German Film Festival in Portland) and hosted other meetups at their homes, at bars, etc. If the current lineup doesn't meet your needs, please feel free to suggest a meetup of your own. We have hundreds of members on the books, so you'll probably get interest!
This is an informal conversation group for women only, in the tradition of the German Kaffeeklatsch. If you're a woman with enough German skills to hold a conversation (peppering with English phrases is fine), you're in! Bring a friend!
And don't worry about using Sie. Wir dutzen einander.
Every first Sunday of the month, at 12:30 PM. We meet at the Goose Hollow Inn next to the Fehrenbacher Hof coffee shop.
