Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Does anybody know if the Canton of Zurich sponsors some German classes for immigrants? They used to have one in the French speaking part where we used to live. There were as well some classes given by an NGO which I used to attend and I met a lot of great people there.

There are some courses that are sponsored or partly sponsored:

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Thanks Prof. Taratonga! But it seems like the Kulturlegi only sponsors people who are under Sozialhilfe?

Will this group still meet in February? We will arrive in Zurich on February 4th and I am interested to meet for conversational German practise (and a chance to meet people in town) as soon as possible.
Please let me know.
Thank you.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hi.

German is my mother tongue. I am willing to help some of you with their German studies and use this chance to get to know new people from and around Zurich.

Cheers
Janine

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Is it too late to RSVP for tomorrow? My German is terrible but I need to force myself to practice! Been here a month already and it's not coming back as quickly as I hoped!

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hi Daniel, there is always enough room, its very open and informal. Starts at 18:30 we try to only talk German until 20:30 but it goes on as long as there are people willing to talk to each other. Address and details are at the top of this page. See you tonight. Toby

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Sorry this is specifically a Wednesday evening thing, you are always welcome. You could look on the Meet Up forums http://www.meetup.com/cities/ch/z%C3%BCrich/, I know there are many groups meeting in Zürich, maybe another one would suit your times better.

May I ask what is the level of Deutsch conversations in general? Would love to join but a bit intimidated as I am not at all a fluent German speaker...

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

They have all levels - from "Hallo, ich bin Elsa", to discussing current political events.

Just go!

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hello guys

I'm a native (Swiss) German speaker and I would love to join your group for meeting new people. Do you have some places available? Can I join you spontaneous?
