Berlin Friends Club is a place to meet and make friends internationally in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We meet every Tuesday without fail at 19:30 at Tolerance Café in Friedrichstr. 211 just across the entrance to Kochstr. U-Bahn station near Checkpoint Charlie. Max, Ralph and the others will give you a cordial welcome.
Our club is non-commercial and non-partisan. There is no entrance or membership fee and no membership application. You just drop in and have a good time. No programme schedule, no chairman. There is only one objective: People making contacts, talking, exchanging information, helping each other out and accepting each other.
For more information, contact Max at PSMaxyusuf@aol.com or Ralph at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Berlin Friends Club is now meeting at Tolerance Café in Friedrichstr. 211, just across the entrance to Kochstr. U-Bahn station, just around the corner of our old location.
Hope to see you there!
Last week cold and rainy – but today in Berlin: Sunshine, heat, best weather. The right atmosphere to really celebrate a FRIENDS meeting in the evening with a cold beer or whatever. So see you then!
In German, there is an idiom for remembering something by using a picture or sound. If you translate it literally into English, it would be “donkey´s bridge”, but this does not make any sense, of course. We have lately discussed the English word in a Berlin Friends Club meeting, and someone came up with something like “memory device”. At least this was what an electronic translator had to offer.
According to LEO, the English word would be “memory hook”, but “mnemonic rhyme” seems also a good alternative.
So, as an example let me cite a teacher´s saying in regard to English Grammar:
He, she, it without ‘s’ is shit!
The weather these days in Berlin is not very much summer-like! Few sun, many clouds, strong rain showers and thunderstorms… This makes it worth while to gather together on Tuesday evenings to talk, make and meet friends. This goes also for those who are spending a few days or a holiday in Berlin. See you tonight and generally on Tuesdays, everybody will give you a warm, cordial welcome.
It does not exactly look like it today, but it is undisputable: summer is here! We have had many nice, warm to hot days here, although today it looks a bit dull. Still, Friends meet on Tuesdays to talk and have fun. So why don´t you have a nice footwalk or bike ride to Kochstr.? Everybody will welcome you and have a nice time.
Berlin Friends Club would like to wish everyone a happy new year and lots of health, luck and success.
As in the past years, we will meet every Tuesday without fail to talk and exchange information in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Even on the last Tuesday of 2011, some members were meeting to have a good time. So make it a point to join us once a week; all nationalities welcome to meet German nationals to keep up with English usage and make contacts.
Best New Year wishes from Max and Ralph
