This is not just another chat room. We are here to improve our language skills, German or English, and to encourage a spirit of community. All who share those aims are welcome.
In the immortal words of our founder, odondon irl: «ein Faden, in dem Deutschsprechende auf Englisch und Englischsprechende auf Deutsch schreiben können, um zu üben, um Korrekturen zu ergattern, um des Spaßes Willen».

Wik, Pottkieker, virus, RenaRd, Goldammer, Jabonah, Amy-MiMi, Jesse_Pinkman, mbshu, karla13, penguin, Dixie, Miss Anthropy, Masu, Martin--cal
Randomly picked highlights (to be complemented by whoever is missing something)
virus has a big family which she describes as a „Sack Flöhe“ or, likewise, a can of worms
RenaRd is still on his HUGE PROJECT Music Review and pops in as his time allows it.
Amy-MiMi’s new school year is 500% better than the one before
The snails are entertained with dog stories by Amy-MiMi, RenaRd and Wik
Wik broke his ankle, started a new job, and then it came out that his ankle wasn’t broken after all.
Goldammer moved back indoors for sleeping in her true bed.
Jesse is trying to sell his house (to be continued)
karla 13 outs herself as an old CC lurker, starts participating actively and entertains the snail community with an autobiographical novel in sequels (to be continued)
Jesse eats moules frites in De Haan, penguin has done that, too, years ago.
Travel vulture, while being pretty much in control of things and Jesse, successfully pretends to look like a frail old bird to outsiders.
Wikling is bi-lingual and on her way to being tri-lingual
Wik’s winter veggie stew is being cooked by various snails, the ingredients are discussed in the snailhouse.
Amy-MiMi’s plans for the Thanksgiving holiday have been ruined by illnesses (corona, among others)
A choice of topics turning up after #200 (you remember: I had already been composing around #200…..):
A lively exchange about cooking, cooking routines and cooking relationships is still going on.
Jesse will definitely move down south for his future residence, Cologne wasn’t working out….
What the hell are Christmas balls??? Serious ornaments or something to giggle about?
Travel destinations: Jabonah has been to Israel, and by mentioning it, lured an old CC celebrity back in: Martin—cal who plans a journey to Israel next year with a German travel group and feels like polishing up his German a bit. As a consequence, the old virtue of giving and receiving correcturitos is being revived a bit.
Israel is becoming quite a topic, since many snails have been there already.
RenaRd is celebrating a "round" birthday and states that „Altwerden ist nichts für Feiglinge“....but is nevertheless curious what the future will have to offer him.
Come on in and have fun!
