What is a Sprachtandem?

In a Sprachtandem two native speakers of different languages meet - independent of a language class - to support each other in improving their foreign language skills.

Tandem learning follows two principles:

  1. Mutuality: Both partners benefit equally from the meetings.
  2. Learner autonomy: Everyone is responsible for their own learning. Each decides what and how s*he wants to learn and respects the decisions of the partner about their learning process.

In a Sprachtandem you focus on your individual needs and you progress at your own pace. How you structure your meetings depends on you and your goals. You may want to discuss topics of interest to improve your oral skills, read texts together, get help with your language class or in preparing for an exam. You can also discuss topics that are usually not dealt with in a language class - it's entirely up to you. In any case, while communicating with a native speaker, you also learn a lot about the culture your partner grew up in. And it's definitely fun!

If you're looking for ideas on what to do, check out http://www.seagull-tandem.eu. Here you'll find lots of material for 15 languages at all levels.
