TANDEM - that's a bicycle, isn't it?
It is, actually, and it's a very special one, as it was made for
two riders, both pedalling forward together. In order to make it work properly and to take
it where the two of them want to go, they should of course have the same goal. If this is
the case, the bike will soon pick up an amazing speed.
And this applies to our TANDEM, too.
TANDEM is a method of learning languages through exchange.
The idea is simple but fascinating: "I will help you learn my language and you will
teach me yours." A learning duet, a fast, efficient, and pleasant way to pick up,
improve and enjoy the foreign language.
You and your TANDEM-Partner will meet at least twice a week
for an hour or longer. Half of the time you will speak in one of the two languages,
followed by the other half using the other one. You will both be teacher and student in
There is even more to a TANDEM language exchange, more than
"just language learning": Its communicative approach as well as its
intercultural character give both learners ample opportunity to gain more insight into
each other's culture through direct communication.
TANDEM is the most active way of learning for anyone who
wants to learn creatively, have fun and make new experiences at the same time.
how do I get to know a TANDEM Partner?
When requested, Tandem Hamburg will try to find you a
TANDEM®-partner who is learning your mother tongue.
There are 3 things you need:
1. a basic knowledge of the language you want to learn
2. a willingness to help your partner practise in your mother tongue
3. a questionnaire - here Tandem Hamburg asks you for details about yourself, your
previous knowledge, and your expectations. You may request the questionnaire through the
contact form at the bottom of this page.
what will this cost me?
You will pay Tandem Hamburg for the first time, i.e. after
the first mediation, a fee of 15,00.
This fee is valid for a full year, therefore following partnerships are free of charge.
And by the way: This service is absolutely free for participants of TANDEM Hamburg courses
