What is your native language and which languages do you want to practice?

Native: German. I understand several German dialects, including Swiss-Alemanic-dialects, but learning to speak them is not a priority for me. I speak English and Swedish quite well (C1-C2), with a slight accent, but otherwise ok. German and English I practice enough in a typical week, so I would not go to a meetup only for the purpose that I am learning or practicing these languages. Interest: Russian (A2), Norwegian (B2), Swedish (C1-C2), Spanish (B1-B2), French (A2), Italian (A1) These I know already to different extents, but I want to practice and improve them. French and Spanish have groups specific for that language, so I do not see so much need to do those in this group. But my highest priorities are Russian, Spanish and Norwegian.


I am living near Zürich, working for my own IT-company. I find both programming languages and human languages interesting. I like human languages, because they allow me to talk with people in their native language and gain much deeper experiences..

What Karl B. is saying about this Meetup Group

This is my favorite meetup group. I visit more meetings in this group then in my other 103 groups combined. :-)
