v) short introduction about yourself

i'm currently living and working in PAP haiti. i met a swiss girl and she convinced me that switzerland is the best place on earth. so now i'm planning to go to switzerland after i'm done with haiti.

if someone wishes to be my tandem, we could do it in writing. if that is okay. i figured, writing would also increase your knowledge of your language if you add that to the courses that you're taking.

will be waiting for a partner!
danke! merci ! thanks!

My name is Lorna, I'm a 23 yr old female graduate from Ireland come to Zurich to au pair for about a year. I just arrived this week so I don't really know anyone apart from my family here (who are really nice thankfully!)

Also, I think a language exchange is a great opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, get a bit of a social life going! Lol

Look forward to hearing from any interested people
Lorna

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

Came across this thread and found it very interesting, so here's a couple of things about me.


i) language(s) that you are learning, including level:
German Niveau B1 from Klubschule Migros

ii) language(s) you speak natively : English and Hindi and (Malayalam spoken only)

iii) your location : Baden

iv) personal interests: would love to learn how to bake different kinds of cakes and pastries , enjoy photography quiet a bit, exploring different places , going for treks (eventhough i am not the sport freak ), love to improve my german, and recently addicted to Sudoku but that's not just it. Got a 6 year old who keeps me occupied quiet a bit. So between household and family its a fresh breather to be able to do something different and learn from it at the same time.

Cheers
Mary.

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

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
French.

I'm working my way through the Rosetta Stone French series, which I like a lot, but it's not so good for conversation.

ii) language(s) you speak natively
English

iii) your location
Currently in St-Genis, France, but hoping to move to Meyrin or Geneva soon.

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Classic and foreign films, reading, cooking, traveling. Sleeping in.

v) short introduction about yourself
My husband is a new CERN employee; we'll be here for two years. We got here last month and are staying in temporary housing while looking for a place of our own, hopefully in Meyrin (his preference) or Geneva (mine). I'm a freelance editor, so I set my own schedule and generally toggle between too much work and nothing to do.

Looking forward to meeting some of you!

Juliana

Hello, I'm Marco, and I was born in Lugano; so my mother tongue is Italian.
I really would like to find someone intrested to have a language tandem ITALIAN-ENGLISH.

Are you far from Lugano?
Doesn't matter, I'm intrested to have chat conversation too, or Skype conversation.

I'm looking forward to find someone intrested.

Marco

I'm 20 years old... Just moved to Muttenz (I'm an au-pair here until the middle of December). So I'm just looking for people to hang out with, practice languages and just have fun.
