[German] Practice conversations/exchange for English Zurich

Hi,
I'm a native english speaker looking for someone to practice speaking German with in the Winterthur or Zurich area. I would saym my German is Level A2 - advanced beginner.
Ideally, I would like to hear from native english speakers who also want to improve their german. I would even consider doing exchange conversations with native german speakers who want to improve their english.
Thanks.

Re: [German] Practice conversations/exchange for English Zurich

Hi there,
I just joined the forum as we are moving to Zurich (central, 5 minutes walk from Enge station) in June for my husband's job. I'm also very interested in finding someone to practice my German with - have been learning since about October. I'm not sure the level I'm at but was hoping to get an assessment at Bellingua and take some courses there. Have you found a good German school in Zurich?

I know there is a group that meets occasionally in Zurich for lunches to speak German. Keep looking in the Social Events.

Your neighbors don't speak German..? It might be a great way to get to know them and to show them your willingness to integrate into the system.

Hello

I'm swiss speaking bookseller born in Zuerich. If we can do something like tandem learning I would be glad. I'm used to speak highgerman because I'm married to a Mandinka mothertongue man. Are you interested? Greetings Dani
