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?
Hi, the usual ratio is normally 1:15, the last time it was 3:23. As the group is pretty large there is no specific subject, people are free to talk about what they like. Believe me, we tried it the other way...

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hello everyone,

I am kind of new here and would be happy to join for the next conversation group meeting, if this is fine with you. I have taken quite a few German courses, and always got overloaded with grammar, with no focus at all on speaking. Finally I got tired of grammar teachers and would like to learn to communicate in German;D Looks like this is the right place. I could bring 1-2 friends with me.

See you soon hopefully,
Adrian

Hi Adrian,

you are free to join the group and bring people along. I guess the purpose of the Conversation Group is exactly what you are asking for. Please subscribe and you will get detailed information tomorrow.

I'm definitely a beginner in German, but looking to improve. I will hopefully be there by 730.

It's a great group, with all kinds of levels. I am very happy to say that my German has greatly improved since I have joined the group.

That, and perhaps having a German...ehm..."private tutor"

Looking forward to chatting!

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Stall 6 has concerts tomorrow from 7.30pm. Maybe we have to find another place (which is difficult for such a large group). I will post here if there is a change for tomorrow and pm to all subscribers.

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

UPDATE FOR TODAYS MEETING (Nov 30, 2011):

We'll stay at the tables left side next to the entrance.
As the concerts start at 8pm we will have to shorten the meeting.

Tickets for the gigs are available for CHF 15 before 8pm. There will be 3 swiss bands (on from the Romandie, one from Ticino and one from Deutschschweiz).

TWEEK from Vaud play a mix of HipHop, Rock, Funk and Electro
TAWARA SHEN KOOL from Graubünden play a mix of Reggae and Rock
and IN THE DEAD CAR from Ticino play some Folk-Country-Blues

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Thanks for the update. I am afraid I won't be able to make it on time, due to something running until past 7pm. See you next time!

Re: German Conversation Group Zürich

Hello Prof. Taratonga,
Hi, Please i like to ask you about this group and how it works. I am planning on setting one up around where i live as it is outside zurich. Please can you tell me anything that can help, like what you discuss about, and is it run. Do you give them topics to prepare for every meeting. Looking forward to your reply.
