Stammtisch and Kaffeestunde
The University of Washington’s German Club is organizing weekly meetups (Stammtisch) for students to hang out, practice their language skills, and play some German board games. Recently, they facilitated a ‘Study Slam’ to help prepare 100 and 200 level language students for their final exams.
German Club will continue to meet for Stammtisch every Thursday in Fall Quarter from 4:30 to 5:30, starting the second week of the quarter in the upstairs section of Cafe Allegro. Come and join us to play board games, socialize, and learn some German.
Starting October 14, you can also join us every Monday at Denny 359 for Kaffeestunde, 4:30 – 5:30pm. Our weekly social hour gives you the chance to mingle with students and faculty and to practice your language skills.
We are delighted to offer a forum for our vibrant community of German speakers. This weekly social event provides students from all levels of German with the opportunity to practice and use their language skills in a relaxed and unstructured setting. Drawing on an important aspect of German culture, Kaffeezeit, students have the experience of socializing with friends and meeting new people over a cup of coffee, all while improving their language skills.
Students from other fields and working professionals on campus who want a chance to converse in German and make connections to the Department of Germanics are also welcome. Whether you are a native speaker or a brand new language learner, a shared passion for German brings people from all different academic backgrounds and interests together at the Kaffeestunde. We look forward to seeing you there!
All students, alumni, instructors, or other associates of the University of Washington are welcome!
