Language-Tandem: Accompanied Tandem-Learning

What is Tandem?

  • a bicycle for two :-)
  • a method of language learning: A language Tandem allows you to join forces with someone who speaks the language you want to learn, so you can both benefit from each other's skills.

How can I benefit from Tandem?

A language tandem has many advantages:

  • You can refresh "rusty" foreign language skills or even learn a completely new language
  • It allows you to use the foreign language outside of the classroom, in authentic and realistic situations
  • You can make friends with people from all over the world
  • You get to know other (learning) cultures
  • And the best part: It’s free!
  • On top of that you have the opportunity to collects 6 IPs for the practical component “Intercultural Engagement” of the Zertifikat Internationales . Just arrange a meeting with us and reflect your tandem experience in a small written text (1 page).
