Take your German to the next level
When I found out we were moving to Germany, I thought it only fitting to try to learn the language. Classes and mobile apps are awesome! However, I really needed ongoing practice. I shop on the economy and we have German neighbors, so I thought I would get lots of practice. HA! Many are trying to be kind and will speak in English. In my head I’m screaming, “No! I’m in your country. Bitte sprechen Sie Deutsch (please speak German)!!”
Thankfully, I came across the perfect solution. The Mehrgenerationenhaus in Kaiserslautern hosts a language meeting every Thursday 10 to 11:30 am. It allows non-native German speakers a chance to hone their skills in a relaxed environment. Questions are more than welcome. They’re even so kind as to slow down to allow my English speaking brain to properly translate the conversation. I don’t know about you, but this is one of my biggest challenges! The best part of all, there is absolutely no charge for this program!
If you want to speak like a local, head on over to Mehrgenerationehaus. They’ll have you feeling more comfortable in no time.
