Language Exchange (German/English)

489 posts in this topic

Hello everybody!

Hallo zusammen!

 

. A new language exchange meet up will be held in Prenzlauer Berg. The evening will be structured thematically, using video excerpts in both English and German. This structured part of the language exchange will be for one hour, and of course more informal (and grammatically loose!) chit chat may continue for as long as you are happy to natter!

. Ein neues Treffen zum Sprachaustausch findet in Prenzlauer Berg statt. Der Abend ist thematisch gegliedert, mit Video-Ausschnitten in Englisch und Deutsch. Dieser strukturierte Teil des Sprachaustausches dauert circa eine Stunde, natürlich gefolgt von formlosen Gesprächen, die so lange andauern, wie Du gerne plaudern möchtest!

 

. Everyone who has an interest in German and English is invited. Beginners with less language skills are welcome and can tune in to the language exchange; you may play a more of an observation role as a beginner if you like. Intermediate and Advanced speakers; you are encouraged to let your opinions flow (input is provided by the organisers) and make this evening a noisy one!

. Alle sind eingeladen, die Interesse an der deutschen und englischen Sprache haben. Anfänger mit wenig Sprachkenntnissen sind gerne willkommen und können dem Sprachaustausch zuhören. So kannst Du als Anfänger die Rolle eines Beobachters einnehmen. Fortgeschrittene sind gerne aufgefordert, mit eigener Meinung bei der Gestaltung des Abends mitzuwirken (Anregung erhälst Du von dem Veranstalter) und kannst somit zum Erfolg des Treffens beitragen.

 

. To make it easier for newbies there will always be someone present who speaks both languages to facilitate the discourse and break down the linguistic barriers.

. Um den Einstieg für jeden Neuen zu erleichtern, ist an jedem Abend jemand anwesend, der beiden Sprachen spricht, um die Diskussion zu erleichtern und die Sprachbarriere abzubauen.

‎. ‍‎‍ The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 6th, 2010, at 7.00pm (19.00) in the Gaudy café. The theme of this evening is ”stereotypes”.

. Das erste Treffen findet am Mittwoch, 6. Januar 2010, um 19.00 Uhr, im Gaudy Café statt. Thema des Abends ist „Stereotypen“.

. In addition, you can expect: World class coffee (truly!), cakes, muffins, sandwiches, soup and more at very reasonable prices. Free entry.

There is wheelchair access and smokers can have a fag outside!!!

. Außerdem erwartet Dich: Weltklasse-Kaffee (wirklich!), Kuchen, Muffins, Sandwiches, Suppe und vieles mehr zu günstigen Preisen. Eintritt frei.

Barrierefrei für Behinderte. Raucher können draußen rauchen!!!

Hi! A reminder to all the German and English speakers for the language exchange ... don't worry about your level of language ability ... the language tasks are structured so that you can contribute at the level of your ability. We're doing a popular German song this Wednesday ... a song which was released in both German and English. See you Wednesday at 7pm. Cheers, Dee-Dee

Hi everyone ... tonight (27th Jan) we're going to look at/listen to the lyrics of a very popular German song (the space has a projector set up) ... looking at the lyrics of a song is a great way to remember vocab and learn more tenses ... you'll all have heard the song; it was huge hit and was released in both English and German. See you tonight at 7pm at the Gaudy Cafe, Prenzlauerberg. Cheers, Dee-Dee
