German Conversation – April

As a former Beetle owner I was sad to learn that VW will end production of the highly recognisable car this year.The announcement marks the end of seven decades of success. The name Volkswagen-meaning People’s Car-was supposed to make Germans buy in to Hitler’s grand designs for the Fatherland and the then new Autobahns.

None of us has a Beetle nowadays,but a variety of cars bring us to our weekly meetings.
