German Group 1

*** Coronavirus update 6 April 2021

All meetings of this group in member's homes have been postponed for the current time, do check this page on a regular basis as we will post here once conditions have improved to such an extent that we can restart meetings. We are running Zoom meetings and are open to new members, until the restrictions on physical meetings are removed and we can again meet in homes and hosts will then be required. We will probably be using Zoom till the end of May and beyond, until people are comfortable meeting again.


Meetings are held in members’ homes on Tuesday evenings.

Everyday conversation with opportunity for items of special interest. There is no formal tuition, but we have several native speakers willing to help. As a group we meet to practice, not to teach. So it is necessary that you have enough German to hear and understand everyday conversation. We don't expect new members to start speaking much for the first few weeks.

We expect each member to take a fair share of the hosting in the home, for this group it is between 3-4 times per year that each member acts as host.

We hold a number of social events, as a group, through the year. These include meals together with partners (in English), a trip to a German speaking City (long weekend) and Carol evening just before Christmas where we sing both English and German carols.

Berlin 2016

Group visit to Berlin - well worth the trip.

German Group Party - January 2015

As every year the German Conversation Group had a New Year get-together with a generously loaded table contributed by the members.

Berlin is worth a visit: (Berlin ist einen Besuch wert.)

This was a slogan in Cold War days when West Berlin was isolated in the middle of the hostile territory of the DDR – Deutsche Demokratishe Republik, which was allied with the Soviet block, not entirely in accordance with the wishes of many of its citizens.

Regular Tuesday evening conversation group

The LALG German Group meets every Tuesday evening throughout the year to enjoy two hours of informal conversation one hundred percent in German language. The meetings are in members' homes, alternating each week, and some wine, tea/coffee and cakes are part of the evening.
