We are looking forward to welcoming our first visitors from Metzingen for some time. Events include a visit to Vindolanda and a dinner in Langley Castle.



Face-to-face conversation: fortnightly at 12pm in Caffè Nero, Fore Street, Hexham, with a German native-speaker, Edith, at a table on the first floor. Please buy a drink downstairs and join us on the first floor. The next session is on 10th May 2024, please write to Penny through the contact page.

Our German conversation group on Zoom has members from both Hexham and Metzingen. The usually fortnightly meeting is on Thursday evenings at 7pm UK time, next one on 30th May 2024, to chat in both German and in English. If you’d be interested in joining in, please contact Penny as above.

All standards of German and English are welcome – everyone is an expert in at least one of them. There are no set topics – this is informal chat and is an ideal way to keep in touch with people whom we know and to meet others.

Face-to-face conversation: fortnightly at 12pm in Caffè Nero, Fore Street, Hexham. The next session is Friday 31st May 2024. Just buy a drink downstairs and join us on the first floor. Please write to Stephen through the contact page.

The discussion group is very informal and is more of a chat. We may cover films, the weather, holidays, and much more.

The level of French spoken is varied, with some speaking little, if any, but happy to contribute in English.
