Cheltenham German Club

For everyone interested in German language and culture

Herzlich willkommen!

Hamburg

The Cheltenham German Club (now called the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprache und Kultur Cheltenham in German) was founded in 1949 and its purpose then was to promote interest in German language and culture: in those post-WWII days many similar German Clubs sprang up throughout the UK, the first of them being the Coventry German Circle.

Today, 60 years on, our Club is still about promoting interest in the language and culture of German-speaking countries.  With the enormous appeal of Germany, Austria and Switzerland as study, work or travel destinations many of our members have joined to learn more about the countries they've visited and love.

We hold monthly meetings at Parmoor House, Montpellier, where we socialise and listen to talks on a wide variety of topics, always with a German focus.  We also meet twice a month for very informal Konversationabende at a venue in the town centre.

We aim to speak only in German at our meetings: some of our members are native speakers, some are very fluent and some of us struggle.  But no-one should feel intimidated - newcomers will find a very friendly, supportive atmosphere.

UNSERE WEBSITE

 

Liebe Mitglieder, falls Sie Lust verspüren,  senden Sie mir einen Artikel in deutsch oder englisch über etwas, das mit unserer Gesellschaft oder mit deutschsprachigen Ländern zu tun hat. Es kann auch ein Lieblingsgedicht sein oder ein seltsamer Brauch, eine empfehlenswerte Reise, eine kurze Geschichte, ein Witz, Bauenregeln, ein Rezept, eine Buchkritik oder was auch immer Sie interessiert. Und es kann etwas Leichtes sein, etwas Schönes oder etwas Witziges.

Ich wünsche Ihnen viel Spaß beim Surfen auf unserer Website.
