Re: German Conversation Group

So you are proposing some structure...hmm. Yes, we could do something down that line. For example I copy a short article and then read it loud in front of the group. This way you would hear how the words are articulated. Afterwards we can discuss it and some of you can have a try.

Das ist gut!
My advice was also intended to anticipate a bit the topic. So, if you have a chance to do it, people can join the group a little bit prepared

no, I'm not! Because you didn't tell us the topic of the short article

Don't worry, I was joking. See you tomorrow

Hi Everybody!

Will look for an english speaking job at 1st but keen to learn german and also to study sthing later... (f.e. online marketing as i was working in HU as senior account manager by a BTL type marketing agency).

Thanks in advance for any help!

Gabi

Yes you can join the group. But it's a lot better if you already have a basic knowledge of the language. Just pass by and have a look.
