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

Cool thread this ... get in touch if you would like to improve your English or share any common interests.

i) Language(s) that you are learning, including level:
German - finished half of A2, but still have trouble with participles and syntax
Spanish - studied it for 7 years in my childhood, but as I do not use it in Switzerland, my Spanish is getting worse and worse.
Swedish - studied it for 1 year at university, tested into the A2 level but have not studied it since. I would be keen to improve my Swedish, though.
ii) Language(s) you speak natively:
Native English speaker, am also an English teacher to schoolchildren
iii) Your location:
Thalwil
iv) Personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc):
Running, watching football, playing ultimate frisbee, reading, journaling, traveling, language learning!
v) Short introduction about yourself
I am a 28 year old male from New York. I have been working in Switzerland for a year in an English-language environment. As such, I do not hear much German (Hochdeutsch or Schweizerdeutsch) and am finding it hard to make real progress. I am a generally quick language learner, having tested into the latter stages of A2 having taken only 1 A1 course, but perhaps this does not provide a complete picture of my many areas for improvement.

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

Hi all; my wife is Brazilian and came over here in Zurich with me because of my job. I'm entering a post here in case there's somebody willing to learn Brazilian Portuguese, or Portuguese in general and know someone nice to talk with...!
So the following doesn't refer to me but to my wife.

Looking for Language Exchange Partner for German/English in exchange for Portuguese

i) Language(s) that you are learning, including level:
German, absolute beginner
English, some knowledge from school

ii) Language(s) you speak natively:
Brazilian Portuguese, Portuguese

iii) Your location:
Dübendorf, Zürich

iv) Personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc):
Her lovely and handsome husband :-), Movies, Brazilian Music, Rock Music (she knows all the tunes from the 70s and 80s...), Justice and Law, travelling, talking (and talking, and talking...)

v) Short introduction about yourself
My wife is 31, has a degree in Law from a Brazilian University, loves travelling and road-tripping, and is an expert in all the issues and topics from Brazil. She really enjoys talking. She loves Zurich. She's doing a course both in English (self-learning) and in German (starting soon), she'd love to find a tandem partner as she doesn't get on well with grammar and would like to learn a language by speaking. She has a very big memory though, so doesn't fear to learn too many terms together.
