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

i) I´m learning German - now on level B1 and studied it already 3 years in Finland and now also in Migros

ii) I´m a native Finnish speaker but I´m fluent in English too

iii) I´m living near by Winterthur so it would be the best if you would live there too but Zurich I can also work out but not that often

iv) My personal interests are travelling, new cultures and cultural differences, now France as I´m moving there on August!, as a nanny childcare, reading, jogging, zumba, flamenco, dancing in general, getting to know people etc. there is too much to say!

v) Hi! I´m a nanny living now in Switzerland - I´m going to stay till July and then move to France! I love travelling and knowing more about the world. I love to have fun and talk about art and what is happening on the world! I´m an international caracter I´ve never suited to Finland and I guess that there is never going to be a place for me in this world - I just need good shoes to keep on going! I´m maybe considering studying journalism in future maybe in Scotland ( or if anyone has some better tips I´m open for all places where people are speaking English! ) I´m 20 years old and despite my young age I can think maturely and have also deep conversations.

So I can teach you English or Finnish and in exhange I would love to learn more German! Hope to hear from you soon!
