In a tandem, you decide how often, how long and where you meet. We recommend meeting at least once a week for 1 hour. Half of the meeting should be in one language and the other half in the other language. What you talk about is up to you: Music, leisure, study, travel, food.... It is best if you agree on a fixed weekly date right at the beginning.
Where can the tandem take place? You can meet wherever you feel comfortable. On campus, for example, in the LUK, in an empty seminar room, in the cafeteria or café, outside in the park, etc. Of course, you can also arrange to meet virtually, for example on Zoom.
To be able to hold a conversation, you should already have a good basic knowledge of the language so that you can hold a conversation. If you are an absolute language beginner, then it is recommended that you first attend a language course, for example a language course in cooperation with the VHS here at the TUHH.
The Tandem program is open to all TUHH students.
