German Conversation Get-Togethers

German get-togethers are for members and friends to practise conversational German at any level. Beginners to advanced are very welcome.

Friends of Alzey offer members two types of German get-together:

  • A Stammtisch takes place on the last Saturday of every month.
  • German conversation evenings take place monthly, in a member's home or via a Zoom call.


The concept of a Stammtisch (much loved and used in Germany) is that the same table is always reserved in a bar or café for the use of the particular group at the same time every week or month. The group members simply go to that table at that time without the need to notify the group organiser. Our Stammtisch for conversation in German is at the The Harpenden Arms 188, High Street, AL5 2TR from 10 to 11.30 a.m. every last Saturday of the month. Please note there will be no Stammtisch in December 2022.

German Conversation Evening

We held many successful conversation evenings over zoom during the pandemic but we have resumed the practice of Conversation evenings taking place at members' homes or via zoom around the middle of the month. Start time is 7:30 pm. Announcements will be made on a rolling basis near to the date. Please phone the host for the particular evening either on the day or the day before the meeting. If this is not possible please don't let it stop you from attending. There is a charge of £1.50 per evening which includes a glass of wine or soft drink and nibbles. You will be very welcome to participate in as many or as few evenings as you like.
