PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE FOR SATURDAY!   

Summer time in the US has already started.   It begins in Germany later than in the US.   In order to permit the native speakers to attend, we moved this week's hangout to one hour later.  This is temporary, but necessary to give the learners the best possible experience.

Please join this week and pay attention to the notes in the event.  We're going to use a Deutsche Welle audio segment to guide the topics this week.   Perhaps this tool will give us more structure for your learning.   Let's give it a try! 
 
NOTE:  TIME CHANGE BECAUSE OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS CHANGE.  THIS WEEK ONLY! ! ! 

PREPARE:  Listen and discuss:  http://www.dw.de/wieso-nicht-chapter-01/a-215520

Next week, we're going to attempt something new.  

In the event, I have added a link to the Deutsche Welle website with one of their lessons for the intermediate learner.   For the Hangout next week, we were thinking we would try a topic and discuss it.  This audio lesson should give us a place to start.

http://www.dw.de/wieso-nicht-chapter-01/a-215520

Listen to the audio, be prepared to discuss the topics covered in this audio segment.  If people like this format, we'll continue to use them until we get all the way through the course.

Story
Tagline
Zwanglose, freundliche Unterhaltung um Ihr Deutsch zu üben. For travel, for work or just for FUN...Practice your German with us.
Introduction
Come and listen, try a few words, or speak volumes

For travel, for work or just for fun.....

Der Zweck dieser Seite ist es, es Menschen aus aller Welt zu ermöglichen, in zwangloser, freundlicher Atmosphäre ihre deutschen Sprachkenntnisse im Gespräch anzuwenden und damit zu verbessern.

Um regelmäßige Informationen und die Einladungen zu den Hangouts zu erhalten, ist es erforderlich das Sie diese Seite in ihre Kreise aufnehmen.

Informationen über die anstehenden Hangouts erhalten Sie mit einem Klick auf EVENTS in der Seitenleiste.

Many people study German for pleasure, business and technical reasons, but lack a way to practice on a regular basis. The German Language Practice Hangouts are for students of German to hang out and practice speaking with native German speakers.  It's a great way to have fun, learn and meet new people in a friendly, stressless environment.

Native German speakers are very welcome, as students learn a lot by being exposed to different accents, cultures, ages and experience.

It's quite simple.  Circle this page (not FOLLOW).  Every German Practice Hangout is an Event.  You can simply see the Event and indicate that you "Are Going".  That will put it on your Google calendar or you'll get a notification in your stream when the Hangout is beginning.  

When you circle our page, it would help tremendously if you would write and provide:
1)  Where you're from?
2)  Where do you live now?
3)  Experience with German (reading, writing, speaking)
4)  Interest in German
      a)  Professional interests
      b)  Family interests
      c)  Travelling interests

Don't stress about your answers, just give a quick response.   No answer is wrong, we just want everyone to know a little about the community they're joining.
