What we're about

Hello! This is a group for learning and practicing languages. We have free of charge meetups as well as paid ones.

Here are approximate types of meetups we’ll have:

-Free of charge language meetups and language exchange meetups. They are free but I encourage members to help by also bringing topics and materials to the meetups or buying a drink to an organizer. Event organizers also help me to pay yearly meetup fees.

-Paid study or conversation meetups where an organizer is learning the language and prepares materials for everyone to work on and leads the session according to the material. The cost can be about 5-10chf per person per session.

-Language classes or activities organized by native speakers. The cost can be about 15-25 chf per person per session.

To organize paid meetups you need to be able to work in Switzerland and take care of taxation of your incomes through my group. If you do a paid meetup or just want to contribute to my efforts and payments for the group you can send me small amount once a year. I pay around 60$ a year and it takes time to manage the group.

I encourage you to suggest language meetups and organize them. Write me an e-mail with your suggestion of a meetup for a language of your choice and let me know if you want to organize it. I will give you an Event organizer role or look for someone who wants to organize it. That can be also any cultural event, dinner or anything what helps you to learn about country of the language or speak more in it.

If you have any questions about hosting of meetups let me know.

Let's do it!

Chinese Language Meetup

Online event

大家好!

We meet once a week to speak in and about Chinese. Most participants are advanced speakers, or of Chinese descent.
Your are a beginner? By all means give our meet-up a chance and drop by! We'd love to help you navigate through the first steps into this fascinating language.

我们每周二晚上七点在火车站附近的某个餐厅聚会,一边吃晚餐(已吃过的也可以只喝一杯),一边用中文聊天。本着开放原则,参加者资格和话题不受任何限制。

我们特别欢迎各位华侨、华裔和来自中国的留学生参加我们的活动,扩充我们对中国的了解。不见不散!

Beginner German Practice (A2)

Coffee bar Porta d'Oro

This is a casual introductory meetup for all A2 German speakers, we will talk about anything of your interest and drive multiple conversations. The only requirement is that you should have A2 German level and that only German is allowed during the meeting. The idea is to force yourself to think and speak in German by communicating as much as possible in it. At the same time, meet new people with similar objectives.

The Attendee limit is 8. We will see how it goes and increase the limit for future events.

Note on venue: I selected a cafe bar near Oerlikon Bhf for easy reachability and to ensure we will have a place for everyone at the meeting.
