No, it's "Camille, the stoned ferret". This is the official Mascot of the Zürich German Conversation Group.

No, because it's a conversation group and not a writers guild

This is just the technical site for the Group not the group itself and serves, among other things, mainly to subscribe, get the directions and obtain general Informations. These Informations are best given in a language that most people on an Englishforum are comfortable in and this is, you may have alredy guessed it, English.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hi, what level of German is needed? I'm a complete beginner...
Some knowledge of German is an advantage. But it is open to anyone as you will meet people who are in the same situation as you. You just can pass by and see if the group suits you.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

My time settings are all messed up and I can't figure out how to change them. The meetup says, it starts at 11:30, but I'm pretty sure that's wrong-- do you meet at 19:30?

thanks!

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Today, July 20, we meet as usual at Stall 6 from 6.30pm. Too cold and wet for a BBQ at the lake.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

I reckon we could have a discreet barbecue in the corner of Stall 6 without anyone noticing, as long as we cook only odourless food.
