Re: Find Your Tandem/Language Exchange Partner on EF!

i) Language(s) that you are learning, including level:
- German (A2; B1 on a good day )
- French (C2; they've even been known to laugh at my jokes )
- Spanish (C1; less joke-making potential but a great language)

ii) Language(s) you speak natively:
- English (UK but after having lived in the US have also picked up funny slang)

iii) Your location:
- Basel (for work); Alsace (for all other things)

iv) Personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc):

v) short introduction about yourself :
Born in the UK, but have lived all over the place. I'm now working in Basel but living across the border in France (as my wife is French). So far it's given me the best of both countries (France = wine; Switzerland = chocolate) but it would be nice to know more people on the Basel side, wherever you're from.

Re: Find Your Tandem/Language Exchange Partner on EF!

First,

Thank you!!
Excellent idea!!

I am a Canadian moving to Bern in one week.

i) I speak German at about an A2 level, but need to improve dramatically!
ii) I speak English fluently, little French and even less Spanish.
iii) Bern
iv) I enjoy waterskiing, photography, traveling, hockey, reading, movies etc


I have been living in Switzerland for three years, but did not manage to attain much High German while here. I am moving to Bern after completing my degree in Tourism and am searching work and seeking to improve my Deutsch!
I am 35, easy going and enjoy pubs and more relaxing places.. Not a big club goer.. Awful dancer!!

If you are a good match please let me know..
Thanks,

Mike

Re: Find Your Tandem/Language Exchange Partner on EF!

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
Currently I'm doing an English C1 and a Spanish A2 course (however I'm going to take a break soon).

ii) language(s) you speak natively
Swiss (preferred)/High German

iii) your location
Zurich (Chreis Cheib)

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Music, films, go out (for a drink, cinema, party), cooking (when I have time), travelling, play games (esp. board- & card-games, billiard), ... I would also be interested in sports but don't have the stamina.

v) short introduction about yourself

I'm 25 yrs old (female) and have unfortunately become a bit of a couch potato what makes it hard to meet new people. To be blunt, I hate people with whom you'll have to set a date a week or more in advance for every insignificance and who are never available to do something spontaneously. Usually I work late on weekdays so I'm often not free before 7 pm.

If anybody feels like meeting up, going for a drink and chattering in Swiss German and English just send me a message.
