Language Tandems

Are you learning a foreign language and would like to improve your language skills?
Then sign up for our tandem programme and find a suitable tandem partner through our portal!

The principle is simple: You and your tandem partner speak your native language half of the time, your partner’s native language the rest of the time. This way you are not only learning to use the language practically in everyday life, but you also learn a lot about the other culture. Both languages are spoken equally, so you are alternately a learner and a teacher.
