Forums for German students "auf Deutsch"?

I'm looking for forums in German that are geared toward German students. My club is really quiet and I want to practise my German somewhere. All I can find are forums for native speakers and I'm relearning my high school/university German, so I'm out of my depth.

Danke sehr! I've looked at the listed communities and no mention German language forums, but illinvestigate further.

If I ever stumble upon something specific, I"ll do my best to let you know. Of what I saw listed, my best bet was reddit, where you could perhaps start a thread as an advanced beginner? Not ideal, but many Germans are so friendly, it may be worth a try. On Duo, I've recently saw someone mentionning they follow German Twitter accounts about matters of interests to them: the danger here is the slang, but the very short format can be interesting…

Oh, that makes me think about a site I'm more familiar with than reddit, which is Quora. Not exactly a forum, but a stimulating place to be. Here is a page with general informations about it http://angelikasgerman.co.uk/how-to-use-quora-to-improve-your-german/

And here is the link to the German speaking version https://de.quora.com/ If you wish to have a look before you create an account, click "Sitemap" then choose a subject.

Hope someone will show up with something just like you asked, though, I can't believe it doesn't exist on the whole wide web :)

Thanks. I'm actually an answerer on Quora, so I'll check that out. I also started a German Twitter, so I just need to figure out how to find German accounts about my specific tastses. I'm having a hard time finding accounts, but I'm keeping on!

I'll check out reddit! If I have to, I may make a thread. Or maybe I'll start my own forum. If I do, I'll post it here.

Danke schön!
