Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hey,

I've not been to the conversation group yet, as it clashes with my formal class. But its the Autumn holidays so I thought about giving this ago... is it still on for Wed 19th?

Also, my brother is coming from the UK on that day so instead of missing it altogether I was thinking of bringing him along.....would that be a problem. I think he has little to no German experience.

Yes, the Conversation Group never sleeps. We will be there.
No problem bringing your brother along. Just sign up, pass by, have a
few beers. I will give you personally a lecture about the legal implication of weed in Switzerland. Cheers

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

I've not been to any of the conversation group evenings but the people I meet when the group migrates to another watering hole are always a jolly bunch.

I may even come along one night and converse in foreign. You seem a nice crowd

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Yippee, this sounds great! I was going to pay huge amounts for Bellingua's conversation lessons, but maybe I'll try this with you first I've been studying german 8 years at school, but haven't used the language that much in the past few years.. Maybe my boyfriend will attend too We're both from Finland and been living in Zürich only a month. Can't wait!

There's no entrance fee - just show up, crowbar yourself into one of the "spaces" on the couch and get chatting. You can also buy a coffee or a beer from the bar at your own leisure. CAVEAT: first-timers must bring a goat to sacrifice.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Pen and paper will be enough as we usually just stay there, talk and have a few drinks ..

the pen and paper are useful for the new words or if you want to ask how do you say something

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Just out of curiosity can I ask, what is the usual ratio of German speakers/learners?
Do you agree a subject in advance or chat about current topics?
