What is the “English Round Table” (ERT)?


If you don't use it, you lose it...

This has always been the motto of the English Round Table (ERT).


The ERT provides the opportunity to practice and improve your English language skills in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You can shake off your daily stress with some small talk, a cold beer or a smooth wine.


This very sincere statement, mailed to us by one of our long time members, sums it up the best.

"Where non-native speakers get a chance to practice every-day English with patient and considerate native-speakers, giving in reverse some knowledge of local customs and habits"


The ERT meets at least twice a month, every second Thursday, at different locations and every last Tuesday at our standard location.


We also plan and announce special events throughout the year.


Who can join the ERT?


The English Round Table is open to everyone, from "Native-speaker" to "Vacation-speaker"


We have only one rule! Naturally, we all speak English!


Of course if your English is not the best, you will have plenty of time to simply listen in, until you feel comfortable enough to join into one of the many conversations.


So call the baby-sitter, throw away the remote control(s), turn off the PC and come join us for some laughs and a good time.


After all language is like your own voice “if you don’t use it you loose it”.


How can I join the ERT?


There are many ways to find out where and when we will be meeting.

What does all this cost?


The English Round Table is FREE! There are NO registration or membership fees, ever.

Of course, if you eat or drink at the meetings you will need to pay for that or if you participate in a special event you may need to pay for an entrance fee.
