(Zürich) Language Exchange (High German to English orMandarin)

I am looking for someone (in Zürich) who´s willing to help me improve my German. I am currently at the level of B2 now. In return I could help with you with English or Mandarin. By the way I am from Taiwan.

Ich suche nach einem Tandem-Partner oder Partnerin, der mir helfen könnte, mündliche und schriftliche Deutch zu verbessern. Gelichzeitig können Sie auch Ihr Chinesisch oder Englisch einüben.

Wenn Sie Lust dazu haben, können Sie mir schreiben.

Hi Wendi

I've just discovered your post now. I opened my own thread in the forum.
I would be very much interested in teaching you German as a language partner while you teach me Mandarin!
Hoping to hear from you,

Simon

Re: (Zürich) Language Exchange (High German to English orMandarin)

Hello all,
I would also like to do a German-English verbal exchange (and, well, if anyone wants to learn Bulgarian I can offer that too!!).
I am a native English speaker (originally from Bulgaria but lived in NZ for most of my life) and I just need relaxed conversational practice to break the 'shyness' in speaking German...I'm at B2 level and can read and write so so, but am not getting enough speaking practice!
The problem is that friends/colleagues are generally not patient enough to listen to you talk like a 4 year old so I would like to meet someone patient enough to listen to me and also willing to correct me...

have a good week!
Assia

PS I'm also in Zurich

Re: (Zürich) Language Exchange (High German to English orMandarin)

Hi assiak,

Just stumbled upon your post and think I can offer you some help with practicing conversation in High-German. It's not my mother tongue (which is Russian by the way), but I think my German is pretty fluent.

It would be a nice opportunity for me to improve my English skills as well

Let me know, if you're interested...
I live in Aargau, not far from Zürich.

Cheers,
Juri.

Re: (Zürich) Language Exchange (High German to English orMandarin)

Hi,

I am also looking for someone in Zurich to practise speaking German with. I am English and currently learning German, but don't feel I am practising speaking enough. The only language I can offer in return is English. I have just completed Berlitz level 1 German, so am at quite a basic level still, but very keen to improve!

Anna
