Regulars' Table (Stammtisch)
What’s a regulars’ table? Of course first of all a table. But more important than the table are the people who meet here regularly to talk, share their experiences and discuss all kinds of things. You chat, you converse ‘unterhalten’. ‘Unterhalten’ has a second meaning in the German language: to enjoy something, to not get bored and to have a good, entertaining time.
At the ‘Unterhaltsamen Stammtisch‘ we speak German, but we don’t talk about grammar or homework. In an informal group over a coffee or a beer we talk about topics we are interested in and things we experience. It is not so important that every word or every sentence is correct, it is much more important simply to talk. Because as a German proverb already says: “Speak, so you learn to talk”. (Rede so lernst du sprechen.)
