English conversation

Hi all,






I`m taking the English Proficiency exam in October and still need to practice my conversation skills ( ...a lot).
Is there someone who would give me a helping hand? I could help with German in return.
I`m female, 45, and live in the area of Stäfa. Zürich or Rapperswil would do too.
Drop me a line if interested.


Cheers,
Christina

Re: English conversation

Hi again ;-)


Maybe I should add to my post above that I`m looking for a (native English speaking) tandem-partner. I`m already taking English classes but sadly, we have not much opportunity to speak during class (blame the teacher...).


I offer you the opportunity to speak and practice German/Swiss-German with me (German being my mothertongue) for 30 to 45 min and then switching to English for about the same amount of time. No costs involved other than the coffee or tea we`ll order at Starbucks or wherever we should meet ;-) Meeting in Zurich is absolutely ok for me.


Cheers,


Christina

Hey Christina, have you found someone yet? I'm a native speaker of English and am looking for someone to practice my German with. I live in Zürich near the Haupfbahnhof. Cheers, Gloria

Re: English conversation

Which English test are you taking? Is it Cambridge exam? I have two friends who are also preparing for Cambridge exam and they have a practice group.If you are interested I can give their contact details.

Re: English conversation

Hi Christina - I will be moving to Staefa in September if you are still looking for some practice at that time. I also used to work as an English teacher for students preparing for the Cambridge exam, so I can help you with some exercises if that might help. Let me know via private message if you are interested! - Nicole

Re: English conversation

I`m not in need of a tandem partner anymore.
Just thought I let you know :-)
