Regular English Language Events

 

Karlsruhe's very own English-Speaking Meetup Group (sponsored by expat-karlsruhe.com) is an informal platform allowing for the organization of events, activities and adventures. The most popular regular event is the monthly German-English Stammtisch where you can practice your English and meet nice people in a relaxed atmosphere. Start is 6:30 p.m. until around 9:30 ish. It's a mix of young and old and all those in-between, who come and go throughout the evening.

The American Library has regular events in English for kids and adults: LitNite (December 4 & 18), Poetry, Please! (November 27), MovieTalk (Date has changed:  New date is December 5),  Storytime for kids 3-5 (December 12), Teen Time (December 14) and Storytime for kids 6 and up (December 14). The American Library is closed from December 23rd through January 7th.
