Being newly in Moscow, naturally I want to speak German, to prevent my knowledge of that language from disappearing!

Does anyone know if there are active get-togethers for people who want to speak German in this city? I mean (more or less) free events, like in pubs, restaurants or similar places. If so I'd like to know about them.

Try contactacting the Goethe Insitut - they used to run courses down at 4 Raushkaya Naberehznaya opposite the Kremlin and Hotel Rossia.

Sorry, don't have a phone number; but can give you directions if you need.

Apart from that, we (expat) were trying to get something together, but it seems to be on hold at the moment.

Don't know of anything else - maybe people are too busy speaking Russian?

Thanks, that's the sort of thing I'm interested in - not a course or any kind of formal instruction. Just talking & drinking beer!
