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:

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...wait, it's the wrong time of year for that sort of nonsense!

Why not take your mind off the wailing wind at Stammtisch tonight? We'll be in the Herzl as usual from 7pm for the German hour before switching to English at 8pm sharp!

Let us know if you're up for joining tonight!

Stammtischers unite! Thursday has rolled around one again and demanded our attention!

You know the drill by now - we will be trickling down to the Herzl from 8pm for drinks and chat in English with friends old and new. If you feel up for a bit of German practice then we have that too, from 7pm. See you later! Bis dann!
