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

hi there,


i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
french, level B2. I can understand more than the level due to having lived in a francophone nation when I was younger . But spent 10 yrs in the UK without speaking french so forgot alot of it which is starting to come back to me.

ii) language(s) you speak natively
English.

iii) your location
Vaud. Have a car and willing to travel depending upto an hour in car.

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Like doing snowboarding, lacrosse and most sports. Also enjoy watching football on TV. In general I enjoy most things such as reading, wakeboarding etc.

v) short introduction about yourself
I grew up in francophone nation so have a good understanding of French but as I did not speak french for 15 years whilst in UK , my understanding is currently more advanced than my speaking.

I have lived in switzerland since 1.5 years. I work for a swiss company in Vaud.

Currently taking lessons, reading french books to improve.

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

Hi

here it goes:

Languages learning: German: have done some at school to GSCE level but was a while back and dont remember much, but would really like to finally get it nailed

Language you speak natively: English, Russian - and French on a good day

Location: Zurich

Interests: hiking, chilling out, socialising, yoga, art and culture, international affairs (a bit of a geek on that one) and all sort of random stuff

Short introduction: am over here finishing my PhD in IR before starting a post-Doc. Looking forward to getting to know Zurich and keen to get my German to a decent level, but only just moved over here.

PM if you want to learn German / English in tandem (am a qualified TEFL teacher in my spare time too)
