German conversation group in Bern

Hi all.
Would anyone be interested in joining me for a German conversation group in Bern? I am looking into improving my German skills, especially for conversation and would like a forum, where we focus on talking about every day stuff without necessarily focus too much on the grammar.
Would anyone be interested in meeting at a cafe or so in Bern (or surrounding area - I am living in Murten) on a monthly basis for an hour or two? Preferably an evening, like Monday, Wednesday or Friday.

Kind regards,
Lotte

Re: German conversation group in Bern

Hello Loka! I would be interested to chat in german, i am in Dudingen and i take twice per week german since last year. I start a new job next week and haven't got a schedule yet, Wednesday nights i teach yoga in Bulle so that night is out until the new yr. But maybe we can meet in the following weeks and maybe start a chat/activity (in german) group in Murten area...

Re: German conversation group in Bern

There seem to be enough of us to start a group. From what people say above, Friday nights in Bern once a month seem a possibility. Would that work for everyone?

Re: German conversation group in Bern

Is anyone on facebook and willing to open a group which would probably make it easier to organise something?

You can organize an event in our social events section. All you need is one person to take the initiative. Pick a date, time and location and off you go with the first meet-up.

Re: German conversation group in Bern

May I propose the first meeting takes place at the Coop Ryfflihof restaurant, on the top floor (4th ?) of the big Coop shop, near the railway station in Bern?

We can begin on Friday at 5 pm, so you can come straight from work, it will repeat every Friday, except holidays. The restaurant closes at 19:45.

http://www.coop.ch/pb/site/vstinfo/n...ex.htm?id=2069

Coop Bern Ryfflihof, Aarbergergasse 53, 3011 Bern. I will sit at a table by the long window, wearing a green baseball cap. If nobody arrives, I will go home at 18:20.

As nothing is happening on this thread, I have now made this a regular social event, please reply there!

Re: German conversation group in Bern

Giving this a quick bump for Sbrinz's event. I can't make it but there seemed to be a lot of interest so it's worth a little reminder.

Re: German conversation group in Bern

I have sent e-mails to the 10 people, who showed interest on this page. Now we have to wait and see who will come!

Please sign up if you intend to come along.. if nobody signs up by tonight at 23:59 then I will cancel the event for this week.
