Any good German chatrooms for learners?

Hi- Just thinking of adding chatting as another way of perfecting my German skills.

I wonder if there are any German chatrooms out there, the open public ones where everyone chats at the same time, and you don't necessarily have to chat one-on-one?

It would be good also if there were some specifically for german learners, with people of various levels of fluency.

Thanks!

And there might be a local meetup dedicated to German where you are, too (or you could start one if there isn't). :D

I'd try to google it or maybe look on langblr on tumblr.

You can chat with natives using interpals.net, lang-8.com, busuu, verbling, etc.

They used to have them (like in the early 2000s), but I haven't seen any in a while. They would be very useful. I'm an introvert, so I'm not all that comfortable chatting with one random person.

I'm part of a Facebook group that chats only in German... Ilkin's Deutsche und spa├čige Gruppe. It's a closed group, but you can ask to join. It's not exclusive or anything. They share jokes, sometimes post helpful charts, etc. I find it really helpful.

In the United States, there are many clubs for people from other countries, or speakers of that language. I belong to a German-American club, here in Florida. I would hazard to guess that other nations may have similar organizations. I have found that many members, once they determine your proficiency level, will adapt accordingly. However, by far, the best primary method of learning a foreign language is formal education, augmented by as many other methods as possible.
