What we're about

We started this group to share our love of speaking German with people in the Greater Toronto Area of all levels of skill in pleasant and relaxed settings. Although this group was started on Meetup in November 2012, the Stammtisch and Brunch events have been taking place monthly for many years.

We have six regular, monthly events:

• the Mississauga Pub Night on the second Monday of the month, which began in April 2013;

• the German Parents and Children Group - Deutsche Eltern- und Kindergruppe on the second Friday of the month, which began in September 2014;

• the Deutscher Stammtisch on the third Wednesday of the month, which began in October 2005;

• the Saturday Brunch the third Saturday of the month, which began in 2007;

• the Oakville Pub Night event on the fourth Monday of the month, which began in March 2014;

• the German Conversations event for people learning German on the fourth Wednesday of the month, which began in November 2012;

• We schedule other cultural and culinary events from time to time.

Two of us, Robert and Stephan W, have been organizers of social events for German speakers, and for other interests, with other groups on Meetup for many years. We have since welcomed Anne, Ethan, Martin, and Mustafa to the team.

--JANUARY 2022 EVENT ON-LINE--

Please note: This event is intended for participants from the Greater Toronto Area. If you are not from the GTA, and/or have not participated before, please message me to say hello and explain why you would like to take part.

Please be punctual: you take away from all participants by being late. We will start on-time and will be using breakout rooms. If you'd like to help out by being a breakout room assistant, please let me know.

Our theme this month is RETURNING, so please come prepared to talk about one (or more!) of: an interesting type of return, like returning home after being away for a short time or a long time, or returning to a hobby, or returning to a job, etc. Second, bring a German word (noun, verb, adjective, whatever) related to RETURNING that is important or interesting for you. Anything will do! Feel free to interpret the topic for both exercises as broadly as you wish. The objective is to talk about something, so we're not going to quibble about exactly what that is! 🙂

If you are participating for the first time, please come prepared to say a few brief words about yourself and why you are learning German (say 30 to 45 seconds).

SCHEDULE
7:00–7:10 Welcome and Introductions
7:10–7:15 Divide into breakout rooms – will limit to 3 per room for more conversation time
7:15–7:30 Tell your RETURNING story in the breakout room and ask questions of your other breakout roommates. Who? What? Where? When? Why? – Wen/Wem? Was? Wo? Wann? Warum?
7:30–7:35 Back to general session, divide anew into breakout rooms
7:35–7:45 Talk about your RETURNING vocabulary word in breakout room
7:45–8:00 Back to general session, general questions
8:00–8:15 (approx.) Optional continued discussion

REGISTRATION
Please make sure to register no later than 6:59 PM on Tuesday, January 25, 2022. Cancelling after this time will be considered a no-show (see penalty later in this paragraph). Participation will be limited to 20 (plus me) from Meetup, and preference will be given to those who have regularly and/or recently attended events on-line or in person. Any no shows will be penalized by a six-month exclusion from future on-line or (god-willing) in-person events. I reserve the right to cancel any registration. Participants should be 18 or over, and you must use your video camera while in the Zoom meeting.
