Tandem language exchanges
What is a Tandem?
Intercultural exchange is a key to successful language learning, which is why we encourage our language students to get in touch with German Tandem partners.
Within a Tandem language exchange, two language learners with different mother tongues get together for a mutual language exchange. Ideally, Tandem partners meet once or twice a week. Each partner should make sure that both his/her native language and the language he/she wants to learn is being used for an agreed period of time.
For example, Pedro from Spain and Katrin from Germany meet for a coffee once a week. They agree to speak German for 30 minutes, and then they switch to Spanish.
How to get involved

We will then get in touch as soon as we found an adequate Tandem partner for you.
