Meetup Group, to speak German

Just had an idea. Would anyone be interested in meeting socially to speak German exclusively. I could learn German until I'm blue in the face, but I'm not speaking it, then it won't sink in.

Wo?

I'd also recommend signing up for Duolingo, where there are some excellent German language links, a recent one on the A1 certificate from Goethe:

to give an idea what is needed for a basic level.

I use duolingo and I have it as an app on my phone. My wife is semi fluent in the language, but meeting others to improve our German would be fun.

Anyone else interested? And out of interest, is anyone else trying to learn additional languages? I'm having a look at Danish and Swedish.

I am interested in learning other languages (Irish and French are the next two on my list), but at the moment I am just concentrating on German.

Checkout www.meetup.com. There are several German groups where you can meet native German speakers.

The only issue with those groups is they are normally ex-pat native level speakers and there are usually very few (if any) German as a second language learners at the meet-ups (in my experience anyway). That's why I would rather a language learning group meet-up instead.

There is a group in Cork called Stammtisch that meet up weekly/bi weekly for German learners to meet up and speak in a social setting. All levels welcome! Cork German Stammtisch is the name of the facebook group

I'm in the same boat as yourself. I can learn verbs, vocabulary and phrases until I'm blue in the face, but without conversation, it's going to waste.

I don't know to be honest. I suppose the majority of people interested in learning German would be in Dublin. So I imagine that's where an form of a social group would meet up.
