German Outside the Classroom at the UofA

stammtisch german conversation club

Stammtisch is a weekly conversation group held every Friday from 12:00-2:00 in the Arkansas Union. 

Because we believe it is very important for our students to have the opportunity to practice their language skills in an everyday, conversational setting, the faculty and staff commit to attending Stammtisch every week.  From native speakers to those who are learning German and just want to listen to some conversation, everyone is welcome.  This is a low-key environment—we’re just chatting, so there’s no stress involved.  Come and give it a try!

The University of Arkansas German Club

The German Club on campus is an organization where university students may participate in and learn about German language and culture. Our mission is to provide access to and foster a love for German language and culture through campus and community-wide programs.

Regular events include Spielabend (playing card and board games in German), a sausage grilling party in the park, and a film festival.
