Language Tandem Program

German and international students, PhD students and scientists can  participate in our language Tandem Program. The Tandem teams can be  formed, for example, from German and international students or  international students from different language and cultural areas.

Within our program, we do not only offer the opportunity to find  Tandem partners. We also support the Tandem teams with an introductory  session and a Tandem excursion. Here we give the opportunity for  exchange, reflection of the learning process, consultation and  assistance in methodology and didactics of foreign language teaching.  Participation in our program is free.

The participation in the Tandem program is free. Participants in the Tandem excursion will have to pay a small contribution to the travel costs. The Tandem  events will be held in German and English. More information regarding registration and dates are available in our brochure.
