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:

Time to rejoice, it's Stammtisch Night once again! We'll be in the Herzl as usual (in the non smoking section) chit chatting in English from 8pm. Let us know in the comments if you're up for joining the German practice-sesh between 7-8!

See you later Stammtischers!

Hello everyone! It's Stammtisch tonight as usual at die Herzl and it's sure to be a good one! If you're up for it we'll have a little German practice around 7pm before switching to English at 8pm.

If you can't find us (or hear us) just ask the friendly staff to point you in our direction! We'll most likely be in the non-smoking room at the very back. See you later!
