As someone once said, English is the easiest language to speak badly. Come along this weekend to iron out some of the mistakes you may have been making without realising it. We will concentrate on some advanced points of grammar that are particularly difficult for German speakers to get right. There will also be a good look at false friends and some interesting intercultural aspects you need to be aware of if you want to avoid making embarrassing mistakes.
