German conversation

The German Conversation Group is one of the oldest IWCH Activity Groups. It was established with the aim of fostering language learning and cultural exchange in a friendly and informal setting. The group gathers every second week at a cozy café, where participants indulge in conversations while sipping a cup of aromatic coffee.

During the meetings, we engage in a variety of activities designed to improve our German language skills. We read and discuss articles from German magazines, which span a wide range of topics including current affairs, culture, travel, and lifestyle. This helps us develop our vocabulary, comprehension, and speaking abilities in an interactive and engaging way.

The group comprises individuals of varying proficiency levels, from beginners to advanced speakers. This diverse mix allows for a supportive and inclusive environment, where everyone can practice speaking and listening at their own pace. Native German speakers are also present, providing invaluable guidance, corrections, and insights into the German language and culture.

If you are interested in joining the German Conversation Group, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Ritva at She will be more than happy to provide you with additional details and answer any questions you may have.

So why wait? Embark on this linguistic and cultural journey with us and enhance your German language skills while making new friends along the way! Wir freuen uns auf dich! (We look forward to seeing you!)

Activity groups are for members only.
