Seeking conversation and company in Winti

Hi,


My funds are fast running out for German lessons and despite being here for nearly two years, by conversation skills are still (shamefully) seriously lacking.


I would love to meet up with people - male and female - for a drink and a chinwag in Winterthur - preferably those who speak a little English so I could relax a bit now and again!


Please help an English girl in distress!


Sarah (42-year-old mum of three)

Re: Seeking conversation and company in Winti

Why not start up an EF English club in Winterthur? You can use the EF Events feature above, and hopefully someone will turn up. Try different times during the week until you get a group.

Select, <Events> <Social Events> <Add New Event> <pull down, select Ranged Event>
Then you need to complete the form, Title, date, times, place, write an introduction and invitation. You can edit the page.

About 4 years ago I started the Bern dinner club, and once a month the EF meet in Bern at a restaurant I choose. It hasn't been a roaring success but we have about 10 regular members, & once we achieved 23 members.

Bern Dinner Club, Tuesday 1st September. Asian Restaurant.

Bern Dinner Club, Tuesday 6. October 19:00, Domino, Lebanese Food.

Re: Seeking conversation and company in Winti

I'd be happy to join you! I'm also a mom in Winterthur who could definitely benefit from some extra time to speak German. My best evenings are Tues or Thurs currently or Saturday mornings. Sara

Re: Seeking conversation and company in Winti

Thank you for your lovely responses! Hey Sara, so nice to hear from you. Do you fancy meeting up sometime soon? Thursday and the odd Saturday morning would be the best option for me but my husband is a shift worker so I have to work around that. I'll take a look at his rosta and drop you a line Hopefully see you soon!
