Tandem Learning

Tandem learning is a cooperative way of learning a language and discovering a culture. The Tandem partners support each other in an individually organized learning process, eg. the German speaking partner helps with German, the Incoming student with his/her mother tongue. Tandem learning is considered to be informal learning, thus you are free to decide on the activities that seem interesting for both of you. Many students combine their Tandem session with leisure activities. You are free to choose the activities yourself, make your own timetable etc. Tandem learning covers both language and intercultural learning. It is up to you which of the two is more important and interesting for you.

You may gain 2 ECTS credit points for „Tandem Learning: Deutsch” / “Tandem Learning; Informal Language Learning”.
