Tandem - Partner

Would you like to learn every-day language? Would you like to improve your language skills? Would you like to meet new people? Would you like to teach someone your language? Learning languages with friends is fun!

Learning in Tandem is a form of intercultural learning with a partner. Both partners should benefit equally from the collaboration. The time spent on each language should be divided equally and the partners must both make a similar effort. At each meeting both languages should be used.

Both parties take personal responsibility for their respective part of the Tandem collaboration and determine their own learning objectives and methods. These are rarely the same for both parties. Your Tandem partner can be consulted as an expert in his/her language and culture, can read out texts if so desired, speak about selected topics, correct mistakes, make suggestions for improvement etc.

Please check these possibilities:

– the tandem wall in AM, on the second floor (put your announcement here for free),
– the website of Sprachenbeirat,
– the tandem party which takes place once a semester,
– visit FForst - every Thursday at 4:00 pm (Café International project).
