The Duolingo Pittsburgh German Meetup is open to German speakers and learners of all levels. Relaxed and laid-back environment focused on a good conversation and willingness to help learners. The goal is to speak as much German as possible, so try and limit your English speaking to clarification questions. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Please no solicitations or selling at the event. Usual phrases for beginners attending their first event: ich heiße [your name] - I am [your name] Wie heißt du? - What is your name? Woher kommst du? - What do you come from? ich komme aus [Where you are from] - I come from [where you come from] Wo wohnst du? - Where do you live? Ich wohne in [Your Town] - I live in [your town] ich bin in [Hometown] aufgewachsen - I grew up in [hometown] Was machst du von Beruf?- What is your occupation?
