This weeks discussion will be on how to write an advertisement to sell a trailer, so please bring your drafts for us to discuss.

Can you summarise exactly how it was used? This is crucial.

Winkelschleifer:


That's either one hell of a Winkelschleifer or a seriously small trailer...

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hi guys,

I just need some help of some people who already attended the Conversation Group. I will set up a new group within my company and need some feedback to put in a newsletter. You can PM me. Maybe I will take some photos next wednesday.

Thanks for your support.

You want a model, because I'm sick of being asked to take my clothes off.






Seriously, happy to help.

It'll be easy to spot the group, at least. Look for the glo-sticks and nipple tassles.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Y'all, what a fun night that was even though I arrived when you'd all finished conversing in German for the night to watch the...erm...football on the big screen together. Who won in the end?!

Had a blast with everyone but special mentions for: -

@AussieBear: You and Mr AussieBear totally ROCK! We gotta hang out together some more - real soon!

@Mr "Compton Cookie" from LA: Dude, sorry but I can't even begin to remember your Forum handle. Too complicated to say, let alone spell! Anyways, you are awesome and at least have some appreciation of street "performance" art ideas. Also, have you cooled down now after that pho? Hehehe!

Take it easy y'all and till soon.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hi all - just quick question. My girlfriend and I are in Zurich for the next 2 years. I did German for 5 years in school, but we're talking almost 15 years ago. My GF has almost none.

Just wondering - would it make sense for her to do some classes first (something like the Migros courses?) before coming to this group? Like would she get more from it that way?

Sorry if stupid question, just our first time ever really trying to pick up a language for real!

Thanks
Graham

Hi Graham,

it makes sense to start a course and then join the group. Because we will not do grammar, just conversation, answer questions and correct a bit.

It's ok to pass by and find out if the group suits your expectations. People are welcoming and from my point of view it is a good way to socialise.
