Hi all,

I just moved to Zürich (near Wipkingen) about two weeks ago and I want to have some practice speaking German. I took four semesters of German in college and I've been to Switzerland several times; I'd say (read: guess) my level is somewhere between A2 and B1, but closer to the latter.

The frustrating thing here--and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has experienced this--is that it feels impossible to practice speaking high German here. Everyone wants to speak Swiss German or English!

I saw some older posts for conversation groups, but I don't know what has happened with that. So what I'm proposing is:

If there are other German learners out there who want a chance to practice, let's start up a conversation group and meet a few times a week. If there are any native speakers who would like to help the group, that would be fantastic. If there are native German speakers who would like practice in English, we could do some kind of exchange. Is there any interest out there for such a group?

Re: German Conversation Group

Hello! I just got back to Zurich and would love to join the conversation group! I will start intensive class again at the B1 level in a week or so (I completed A2 a couple months ago). Thanks!

I'm in Bern, but would love to attend something during the day, even if I have to take the train to Zurich. I'm an A1, not quite an A2. In fact, since I have to travel, I'd really want it to be during the daytime.
Hey, I am near Bern as well, are there any native German speakers out there who would like to meet with us around Bern?

Re: German Conversation Group

That's a great idea you guys! You can organize your own German speaking group here on the EF, it's very easy, and the both of you could start it whenever you want. Just go to the Social events section and then to "new event" and get started Wish you the best of luck!!

P.S.
You are always welcome to the Zurich one, of course
