Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

The group should be easy to find - just look for the large group of people speaking in short sentences, looking somewhat bemused, with a fair amount of if-I-nod-and-smile-it-may-seem-like-I-understand-what's-going-on faces.* Normally we're in the corner at the back, on the right.

*Disclaimer: I can only speak for myself, but I find this technique works well.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

As the group is too big to handle we will try a different approach for the next meeting, March 16th. Someone suggested to discuss in groups of two or three people and switch partners after 5/10min. Just for the first hour, then back to freestyle again.

Any feedback or suggestions are welcome!

And thanks all for showing up. Please try to RSVP til tuesday midday before the meeting as I have to make reservations at Stall 6.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Great idea. I guesss 5 people/group would be good enough, each with a native german supervisor.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hopefully next time I will be on time.. or you guys can arrange meetings in the weekends!

Hi!

I want to join to you. Can I go? I'm from Hungary. I learnt at a German High School 4 years ago in Budapest, so my german is not so bad, but i want to improve it.

Yeah, funny, where can we get the native german supervisors from? Most will be without supervision, I will be there to help out if there are questions.

But I see you are forming an Hungarian Gang within the group.

The bar staff? They can comment as they collect glasses. We'll have to increase our beverage intake so that they have to continously clear the tables, though.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

On March 16th we will be at the tables, left side after entrance. They have an exhibition and no place left in the rear part of the bar.
