Tandem experience by Fernando

Submitted by on Wed, 01/31/2018 - 14:37

Dear all,

Since today I am here trying to find a tandem to learn german and teach spanish but do not have any reply yet.

What I do not find really positive is that in the profile of anybody we cannot see last time he/she was active.So maybe it is months/years somebody is not active and I waste time writing.This info should be amended and improved in this site.

Thanks.

Deinen ersten Sprachtandem meistern

Wenn Du noch nie einen Sprachtandem gemacht hast und davor Bange hast, dann ist dies verständlich jedoch absolut unnötig. Denn vom Grundsatz wird sich ein Tandem nicht viel mehr von deiner täglichen Kommunikation unterscheiden. Es gibt dennoch einige Erfahrungswerte und Tipps, die es Dir vereinfachen können, die neue fremdsprachige Kommunikationserfahrung zu starten und positiv zu gestalten. Du hast nun mit einem für Dich interessanten Sprachpartner wenige Pings ausgetauscht und es geht auf das erste persönliche Treffen zu.

Master your first language tandem

If you have never done a language tandem and are afraid of it, then this is understandable but absolutely unnecessary. Basically, a tandem won’t differ a lot from your daily communication. However, there are some experiences and hints that can make it easier for you to start the new foreign language communication experience and make it more positive. You have now exchanged a few pings with an interesting language partner and it goes to the first personal meeting.
