A Language Tandem is a type of intercultural exchange which takes place outside of the classroom. Two students with different native languages meet regularly and communicate in their respective languages. Through the Tandem project, participants have the opportunity to improve their language skills and learn about a different culture through frequent contact with native speakers. Furthermore, participants can choose the topics themselves and improve their language skills in specialised fields.
Once they have been matched successfully, pairs meet at a place and time of their choice. Each meeting is 2x45 minutes long, with each target language being allocated a 45-minute slot. Following successful completion of the tandem, including the submission of a journal entry for a total of five sessions, participants can receive a certificate of attendance. During the semester, the Language Center provides consultation hours, material and suitable rooms for tandem meeting.
Please note: participants on the Arabic Tandem do not need to register online because the Tandem is a compulsory component of the language course.
If you are attending the next Arabic course and would like to continue the tandem with your partner from the previous semester, please inform us at the beginning of the semester by e-mail: email@example.com
If matched successfully, you will receive an invitation to the orientation program, where you can meet your partner and receive information about the program and process. Please take into account that we can’t guarantee a match for everyone.
Please note that you have to make an appointment for your final meeting. You can use our new online appointment form (currently only reachable when connected to the university's VPN (manual)). Alternatively you can make an appointment by email firstname.lastname@example.org
