hey fellow language hackers, I can really recommend this web site, since it's a site packed with encouragement and “language hacks tips” about speaking languages as quickly as possible.

Until approximately 8:30pm, conversation is carried out in German, and all levels are welcome.

After 8:30pm, we start speaking all kinds of languages, depending on who is speaking to whom, and, among those, there is also English.

So you see, if you come, you'll kill two birds with one stone (or, as we say in my country, you'll "catch two pigeons with one fava bean" ).

Hi cbaldi

Why don't you try the language corner? You may find a suited teacher there?

In Zug there are quite a few language schools and they offer courses late in the evening too, e.g. Castles, LiZ, Dialogica, etc.

Good luck

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hello Guys and Gals learning Tüütsch ,

how far are you with German? I am an intermediate level, I can probably explain what I want to say, though not in a very sophisticated way.

Would it be OK to join (also more like to meet new people :-))?

Seems like the group is tailored only for you. There are all levels, from beginner to natives. You sure will meet new people as there are usually from 30 to 40 people attending.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Had an excellent first experience with this group last week, but have got stuck in work this evening. Apologies that I couldn't make it.

Away for a couple of weeks but will definitely return after that.

Thanks.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

As the German Converation Group is working very well and is running smooth I was thinking about having a small group within the group for SWISS GERMAN CONVERSATION.

This means max. 4 to 5 people. Decide what school book to use. Working through the book on wednesdays with my help.

If you are interested let me know.
