Learning in Tandem

Would you like to improve your German?
Do you want to enhance your language skills?
Do you want to develop intercultural competences?
Do you want to prepare for studying abroad?
Have you already thought about leaning in a tandem project?

In a language tandem, two students study together in a partnership:
one student’s native language is the other student’s foreign language.
The students learn with and from one another.

Tandem learning is not recommended for total beginners. It is oriented to everyone who would like to expand their language competences by meeting regularly. In tandem learning, you can do two things: independently set your own priorities and topics, thereby helping your partner, and you can get to know another culture in a direct and personal way.
