Language Tandems at ASH Berlin

Do you want to learn German or another language with a native speaker outside the usual classroom setting? Welcome to Language Tandems!

A language tandem is about learning a language and experiencing cultural exchange at the same time. Two people with different first languages or very high proficiency in different languages meet and get to know each others languages and cultures. Both teach and study at the same time – outside of the classroom with a focus on individual needs and wishes.

ASH Berlin offers the language tandem programme with the goal of bringing international and local ASH students together. Language tandems do not only motivate local students to go abroad, but tandems may also turn into friendships and social networks that last, even after the end of the tandem.

Language Tandem Forum (Tandem Wall)

Our Tandem Wall will be replaced by the Language Tandem Forum from now on. This link leads you to the self-enrollment for the Moodle course, which you can join with the password "tandem".

The forum will be updated after each semester and is open to anyone interested.  From English to Turkish to Korean, more than ten different languages are offered each semester.

In our language tandem forum you can search for tandem partners or post your own tandem offer, no matter if you want to improve your language skills or learn a completely new language. In the forum, anyone can start or answer a conversation, and you will also find a video meeting point for students, so that you can get in touch with each other at any time.

Participation in the Tandem program can be acredited with 30 points in module 1 for the International Certificate. For more information on this, please visit our website.
