About the Group
Our friendly German group currently has eight members, meeting on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month.
We all have a previous knowledge of German and are also fortunate to have a native German speaker in our group. The focus for each session is generally chosen by the host, so we have an interesting mix of activities, e.g. general conversation, reading German articles, poems, doing crosswords and quizzes, watching videos, translating - in fact anything German language-related. At the moment, however, we are going on a virtual tour of Germany, learning about a different 'Land' at each session. So far we have explored Baden-Württemberg, Bayern, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Bremen, Brandenburg and Hamburg, thanks to a very interesting book entitled 'Deutschland: Alles, was du wissen willst'.
‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ seems to have become a regular feature at our meetings now too. We also organise outings from time to time.
