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:

Happy Feiertag, everybody! Hope you're all enjoying the beautiful weather after yesterday's downpour! Stammtisch is taking place as usual tonight in the Herzl from 8pm. If the weather holds we could maybe even sit outside.

We will also have the German stammtisch from 7pm for those who want to practice - please post below if you're up for it!
