Learning in Tandem

Do you want to enhance your language skills?
Would you like to develop your intercultural competence?
Are you preparing for a study-abroad program?
Have you already thought about leaning in a tandem project?

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

Tandem learning is a great chance to expand one's language competences by meeting regularly. In tandem learning, you can do two things: independently set your own language acquisition priorities and topics and get to know another culture in a direct and personal way.
