German conversation in Zug

Does anyone know about German conversation table in Zug, just like there is one in Zurich? If there is none, would anyone be interested in? Obviously then, we have to find a German native speaker to lead the conversations, but that should not be a problem...

Let's do it!

hi everyone,

My name is Claire. I've just moved back to Switzerland after the last 3.5 years in Australia. I'm now living in Unterägeri, near Zug.

I'm very interested in German chat sessions. I'm at an intermediate level.

I'd also be more than happy to help organise something as I'm not working at the moment.

Choose one option from the following:
1. weekend/week day
2. morning/afternoon/evening
3. meet for a drink/meal/park
4. easy going/structured sessions
5. split into different levels/everyone together
6. committed/flexible

Has anyone been to a Spanglish session before overseas? It's where people who speak both English and Spanish come together, you pay a small fee, and then you speak 5min in English and then 5min in Spanish (so that both sides have a chance to learn).

I was thinking about setting up something like that here, but wasn't sure if the interest was there. "Swinglish" or "Deutschlish" haha. The small fee covers administration costs and usually includes a drink.

I look forward to hearing from you all.

Ciao,
Claire

Re: German conversation in Zug

Hi Claire,

I would definitely be interested in either the normal conversation style class or the mix of both.

i would prefer a weekday evening drink or dinner, need to be flexible as have to go back to London for a week every month, would prefer easy going as do a structured private class already and think that as it is conversation it doesn't necesarily matter what level you are. beginners can listen until they get enough vocab etc to join in. it's not a lesson after all it is a chat group.

i would be very happy to help you set something up so do let me know if you need me to. keeping my fingers crossed it comes to something.
sophie

p.s if you just want to meet for a drink anyway please also let me know.

Catch up for a drink in Zug

Hey Sophie,

Thanks heaps for replying so quickly.

i'd love to catch up for a drink, or even some tennis (I noticed you like tennis on your profi). Anyone else want to join?

Thanks for answering the q's - evening sounds great for me and keeping it flexible works well.

Why don't we meet up for a drink and then we can chat about some more. Does next week work for you?



Ciao,
Claire

Re: German conversation in Zug

I'd be interested in joining too (or just meeting for a drink). My German is somewhere in the middle, with grammar a work in progress.

Re: German conversation in Zug

I am still interested, and can do evenings. I don't know any native speakers to join us though...

Re: German conversation in Zug

Sounds like a good idea. At the risk of sounding like a dodgy dating site, how do we all spot each other? (No red carnations in buttonholes please!)
