German Conversation Group Winterthur

Is there someone interested in being part of a German Conversation Group in Winterthur?
I might be able to organise a meeting (at least the first one!), with a native swiss german than can help.
It would be probably in the late afternoon.

For all the trailing spouses like me with pleeeeeeeeenty of time, we might organise something in the morning or afternoon.

Who is interested?

Re: German Conversation Group Winterthur

I'm working on the B1, I have a friend who is at the same level.

Not many others interested at the moment...or maybe they are too shy to accept the challenge??

No german, no party....I want to work on it !!

I speak German, but I want to improve. Let's do a first german meeting and see how it works.

Bis später.

Re: German Conversation Group Winterthur

Evenings would be best for me since i would not need to arrange for a sitter. I can most easily arrange for a sitter during the lunch hour.

Re: German Conversation Group Winterthur

Hi I would be interested. Mornings or evenings would be better for me as I have 2 kindergarten and school aged children. Also my level is quite basic but Im happy to be listening to attune my ear more

Feel free to help

Re: German Conversation Group Winterthur

Hi everyone,

It seems that the German Conversation Group will start soon.

For better understanding how large is the participation, I need to have a feedback from who is interested with the preference for a morning (10am) or for an evening meeting (8-8.30pm).
There's the chance that both will be running, so let me know which one is suitable for you.
I have set up a dedicated email address:
GCGWinterthur@gmail.com

Please add your contact details (and your EF nickname)

I'll try to organise the first meeting for next week.

Silvia
