How do I earn credit points?

Currently only students can participate in the Sprachtandem program!

Kick-off for the summer semester: mid-April 2022

Note: You can always sign up to find a Tandem partner via the database and work together independently.


Follow these three steps:

  1. To find a Tandem partner, create a partner search in stud.ip (see "How do I find a Tandem partner?")
  2. Sign up for the class "20.01.100 Sprachtandem".
  3. Participate in the last kick-off event (date see above) for this winter semester. If you want to earn credit points, it's mandatory since it explains the entire program. If the database hasn't suggested a learning partner, participate anyway because you may find one during the kick-off.

A reminder: If you are a degree-seeking student of this university and your program includes "Professionalisierung", you can earn 3 credit points for this section. But since the exam regulations vary, find out from your academic advisor if your degree program accepts these credits for sure. Note that Sprachtandem counts as one of the four free foreign language courses that you are entitled to as a student. German language classes do not count!

If you are an exchange student, Sprachtandem is free. Your home university most likely accepts these credit points (3 ECTS) as a language class, but if you want to be sure, check with your academic advisor.


If you don't want credit points: Kick-off event is recommended!

  1. Create a partner search in stud.ip (see "How do I find a Tandem partner?").
  2. Sign up for the class "20.01.100 Sprachtandem" to be able to join an online kick-off event. Participation is recommended because here you find out how to get the most out of your Tandem. And if the database hasn't suggested a partner for you by then, you may find one during the kick-off. 
  3. Sign out of the Sprachtandem class within the first two weeks of the semester. This way the Tandem doesn't count as one of your free foreign language classes. You work entirely on your own and won't receive a certificate.
