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.
