Language Learning in Tandem

Learning a foreign language in Tandem means that two people with different native languages meet on a regular basis in order to learn their partner's language and to find out more about his or her cultural background.

Learning a language this way, you can

  • learn individually according to your interests and needs.
  • learn from and with a partner and practice/improve your foreign language skills in authentic conversations.
  • learn how to organize your learning.

All information about the tandem programme and courses as well as our counselling sessions for tandem and/or individual language learners can be found HERE.
