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

Hi
i) language(s) that you are learning, including level - French B2/C1(ish)

ii) language(s) you speak natively - English

iii) your location - Aubonne area

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc) - Cooking, computers, crafts, calligraphy (It appears that anything beginning wtih a C!)

v) short introduction about yourself - I am female and 54 years old. I have lived in Switzerland a number of years and did French lessons for some time. Since I stopped my lessons I have found I am not using my French enough as most of my friends speak English. I have taught some English here but would love to work on my french conversation either in tandem with a French speaker who wishes to improve their English or even a small french conversation group locally. I have transport to travel if necessary.
