The group operates weekly even if the posts on the thread are from past days (weeks), only make sure to sign up for the event and you will get more info for the reunion. All levels are welcome but if you already speak a little bit of german makes the experience a little better.

Hope to see you one time on this thing
Cheers

No, it's freestyle. We will be around 30 people from all around the world. There is no way you can control this crowd. Maybe we will have a few more native speakers around who can help.

Still waiting for someone who can challenge me on the tablesoccer.

Hmm, can't say I'm very good at table soccer. Will have to hope for a spell of beginner's luck...

Regarding the native speakers, I asked my OH to come around if he is free, and he'll confirm later either way. He is a native speaker and I think it would be fun.

Regarding the table soccer...

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Two years ago MariaMARIA started the German Conversation Group.
German Conversation/Practice

The first meeting was at the Imagine at Hauptbahnhof. Three people showed up: MariaMARIA, HelenT and me. After 2 years the number of people attending the group slightly increased. Nowadays there are usually around 30 people squeezing into the lounge at Stall 6, including sometimes babys and dogs.

Thanks MariaMARIA for the great idea, HelenT for her steady presence (hope you learned something) and taking over whenever I couldn't make it and all the others for creating a good, laid back atmosphere at the meetings.

This last two years I met more people then the ten years before and made many good friends of which some already went back to their home country.

I really enjoy leading this group as it's like a little holiday every wednesday evening.
