I am professor in social health sciences at the Lausanne University and I would like to improve my english language skills, particularly conversation skills in daily life. I am coming back from a stay of 4 months in England (Devonshire) where I fell in love with english language! In England I had two tandem partners, one English/Spanish and one English/French. I am always keen in meeting new people in order to discover other areas that I do not know about.

I speak Japanese natively, and good English.

Moved to Aarau a year ago from Kuwait because of my husband's job.
I have worked as a teachers assistant at one of the well known British schools in Kuwait ,and taught English in Japan. I'm now trying to learn German which I find quite hard. To speak German outside of school is very difficult as we only speak English at home. If anyone fluent in German is interested in learning Japanese ,we could exchange German for Japanese lessons. Thank you.

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

Would like to improve my German and perhaps pick up a little bit of Swiss German to make daily communications understandable! Everybody is so friendly that I feel a little guilty for not fully understanding them...

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
German (B1), Swiss-German (A1)


ii) language(s) you speak natively
English, also know Latin quite well but that's not much use...

iii) your location
Solothurn but am willing to travel to Bern.


iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Fencing (the sport - not building an actual fence, as many of my students have mistakenly believed ) , films, History, photography, art and museums/galleries, travelling and food (especially cake!).


v) short introduction about yourself
I have recently moved from Scotland to Solothurn to teach English at the Kantonsschule. I am a CELTA qualified English teacher (pass B) and would really like to improve my German and learn some Swiss German so I can start looking for internships in the art world. I would also quite like to meet some new people and explore more of Solothurn! Also willing to take private tuition if you feel you don't need English tuition.
