• English Debate Club

    Cafe Dox

    This week's topic: Phobias and fear How can you get rid of phobias? Why do we seem to have phobias for very specific things? And if time permits, a discussion of fear. Directions to the place Ⓣ Metro Station - Gamla Stan The English Debate Club: Challenge and improve your English skills with lively discussions and debates! Sometimes we stick to debate format, other times it evolves into a general discussion. Participants are welcome to prepare beforehand or wing it - but everyone will be encouraged to contribute to the discussion. Focus will be on crafting arguments in English, phrasing for emphasis and expanding vocabulary at an advanced level. Native English speakers who would like to brush up on their debating skills very welcome also! It's okay to interject and to reply directly as long as it does not get out of hand (in which case a speaker's list will be more strictly enforced). People who have not spoken much get precedence. If you just like to sit and listen that is fine too. For the few who really like to talk at length: You may be interrupted and asked for clarification, or it may be pointed out that you're repeating yourself. First hour is usually a bit more free form, looking at the subject from different angles, and then we may home in on specifics more during the second hour For previously discussed topics, see: https://debateclubtopics.wordpress.com/

    Café Dox in Gamla Stan

    Welcome to the regular Sunday group for Swedish conversation at a basic and intermediate level. As this is a conversation group it's good if you know the basics of the Swedish language, like presenting yourself and asking some simple questions. Herefore check out our links to learn swedish: http://www.meetup.com/intercambio/pages/useful_links_to_learn_swedish/ Everybody will be able to practise the Swedish language with other people willing to do the same. We will achieve this through conversation on current topics as well as games and topic cards for exempel. Feel free to bring any ideas of input with you, topics for discussion, questions or any games you think may work.

  • Advanced SWEDISH conversation

    Needs a location

    Welcome to the regular Sunday Swedish group at an advanced level. NOTE!!! The event host(s)/helpers are far from always able to attend this meetup. Due to forgetfulness and/or bugs in the Meetup app hosts might falsely be indicated as "attending". Therefore, please check for comments on how to find the hosts, or other people standing in, before heading for the event. This will typically be posted a day or more before the event. NOTE!!! As this Meetup is held in a café, you are expected to buy something from the café - so we aren't just freeloading/loitering. It might be something as simple as a cup of coffee. NOTE!!! This meetup is intended for people at an ADVANCED level of Swedish. This means you should at the very least be able to keep a simple conversation in the Swedish language (perfection not necessary; we meet to learn) and be able to follow most of what is being said in a Swedish news broadcast. If you are not at this level, go to the beginner or intermediate groups instead. Everybody will be able to practice the Swedish language with other people willing to do the same. This will be achieved through conversation on current topics which will assist in making sure there is always something to talk about. After this advanced group, you are more than welcome to help with the intermediate and basic groups: helping people who are looking for words, correcting them when they make mistakes... or just speak with them. Note that helpers are not teachers, everybody in the group should help the discussion running. Feel free to bring any ideas of input with you, topics for discussion, questions, or any language game you may think may work... *** WARNING: pickpockets *** Phones, laptops and wallets have been stolen, so please watch your stuff (even in the pockets of your jackets that hang on your seat)! ************** Please be considerate of other members by keeping your RSVPs up to date and attending events when you indicate that you will. If you're on the waiting list, please check your status in case you've been moved up to the Attendees list.

  • Intermediate ENGLISH

    Café 60

    *** Just thought I'd inform people that from time to time I won't be able to make it to the event. Hopefully some of the regulars will be able to help the newer people find the group/respond to comments. *** Welcome to the Sunday group for intermediate level English. This is a casual conversation group where people who want to improve their English can come, chat and have a coffee (or another beverage, if you so desire). There will be no set topic or structure to the meeting aside from coming to the cafe and chatting about whatever's on your mind. Advanced and native speakers are also welcome to come and help out. It should be noted that helpers are not expected to be teachers, however, if you have some questions I'm sure they will be more than willing to try to help you out. Please be considerate to other members by keeping your RSVPs up to date and attending events when you indicate that you will. If you're on the waiting list, please check your status in case you've been moved up to the Attendees list.

  • FRENCH conversation

    Needs a location

    This group will meet for those people wanting to practice their French with a native French speaker We will focus mainly on the flow of conversation. This will be achieved through conversation led by Jonas and if the group is large enough through games, which will assist in making sure there is always something to talk about. As we are meeting in a café that doesn't earn anything from our presence, we ask everybody to buy something, even if it's something small. *************************************************** Cher ami francophile, Tu as appris le français (à l'école, lors d'un voyage en France ou autre...) et tu aimerais le pratiquer ? Quel que soit ton niveau, rejoins notre groupe pour continuer à utiliser la langue de Molière... Si tu es francophone, que tu viennes du nord ou du sud de la France, du Québec, d'Afrique ou d'ailleurs, tu es également le bienvenu pour partager tes connaissances linguistiques et culturelles afin d'aider ceux qui veulent apprendre le français sous toutes ses formes et avec tous ses accents. Il ne s'agit pas d'un cours, nous essayons simplement de parler de tout et de rien, de sujets d'actualité, de différences interculturelles ou linguistiques... Suivant le niveau des participants, tous les thèmes sont les bienvenus mais le but principal est simplement de discuter et de pratiquer la langue ! J'espère vous voir bientôt et nombreux assister à notre groupe francophone !
