The AAC is not the world’s easiest thing to define. It’s a group of people with a common interest: the English language. Other than that, it’s all about diversity and learning about other cultures.

People at the Stammtisch are typically Austrian students, expatriates working in Graz, foreign students here for a semester or longer, and of course their friends. (It’s best to visit the Stammtisch three or four times in order to really getting to know people, as the group is always different… just one visit is often not enough to get an idea of what it’s all about). Stay in touch via our mailing list, Twitter @Anglo_Austrian, or even better Facebook:

Summer holidays or not, join us for another Stammtisch tonight, from 8 p.m. at Die Herzl!
Anyone interested in trying out their German from 7 onwards, please comment below, so we know if we can get a group together! :)

Stammtisch [ˈʃtamtɪʃ]
A regular, informal get-together of a group of people, often with one or more common interestes. In our case, we love speaking English, either because we are from an English speaking country, or we are teaching/learning the language, or not many people share our own mothertongue so we speak English instead, or for oh so many other reasons! What's yours?

Another warm and sunny mid-summer Stammtisch-night is almost upon us! Everyone who is not on holiday yet, let's get together for a round of chit-chatting over a cool drink at Die Herzl! As usual, we'll start the night with an attempt at some German from 7 onwards and will switch to English around 8 :) let us know in the comments which part you are up for!

It's that sad time of year when we start to say goodbye to some people who are leaving us for the summer or for good so let's all enjoy a drink and some chat together at the Herzl at Stammtisch tonight. We'll be there, as usual, for German Stammtisch from 7pm (let us know below if you're up for it) before we switch to English at 8pm.

If the weather stays this good (no guarantee these days!) we'll be sitting outside and if you can't find us, just follow the noise! See you all later!
