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

Hi all,

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
German, I'm probably at A2 level now, although about 10 years ago when I did my German A Level I was a lot better than I am now, so fingers crossed it will come back quickly!

ii) language(s) you speak natively
English
iii) your location
Wiedikon, Zürich
iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Travelling & exploring Switzerland, going out with friends, reading.
v) short introduction about yourself
I've been here almost a year, but my new year's resolution is to improve my German & make new friends, so this seems the perfect opportunity!

Let me know if you're interested!

Hi Polly,

I've just seen your post about a language exchange partner and I think we'd be a pretty good match, although I think your English is much much better than my German, so that could be an issue for you! Let me know if you're interested in meeting up and if not, good luck finding someone!

Julia

Tandem to teach Spanish and learn basic German (and/or advanced English)

i) Language(s) that you are learning, including level:

2. Advanced English - Score in TOEFL iBT = 100 of 120 (before 2 years of English-immersed life)
