WeÂ joined a German meetup group a few weeks ago and we had our first meeting last night. I was really thrilled that someone had finally started a new German meetup group here. I was hoping to meet some new people, possibly Germans :)
There was a huge response for this meetup group and 17 people had RSVP’ed YES for last night’s meeting. It ended up being “only” 9 of us, but I think that was a decent size for a first meeting.
We got coffee at Starbucks and then sat outside and just introduced each other and chatted about anything and everything. It was great! There were 6 Americans and 3 Germans. The Americans all really made an effort to speak in German the whole time. I thought that was awesome, because you tend to easily slip back into your native language when conversation becomes to difficult. But those guys really made an effort to live up to our group’s name “German speakers of S”.
I think this is going to be a fun group! We’re planning to meet about twice a month and I am already looking forward to our next meeting.
