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

Hello,
I'm an English teacher at a public school in Vevey. I have a student looking for an English tandem for herself and her younger brother, she's sixteen and her native language is French. Please write me an email at jane.cheng[at]post.harvard.edu if you know someone similar in age who might be interested. They could also pay a little for tutoring (CHF 16/hr).
My students all live in this area.
Thanks!
Jane Cheng

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

Looking for Italian tandem against either French or English

In Neuchatel area (I live in the mountains above- but have a car)

I am looking for native Italian qualified teacher, and someone who would have family interested in eventually doing exchange hosting. eg we could stay there to practise and be shown around their area, and vice-versa.

I am C1 level (not done any Italian for 4 years) and OH at A2.

We are both retired, but very active- age not important. We like skiing, walking - OH is a keen photographer.

OH born in Cape Town, brought up in UK (Surrey), me born and bred in French speaking Switzerland but lived nearly 40 years in UK- 2 grown up daughters, one in London, married 2 children. One living with partner in Tenerife. I am a UK qualified and experienced English/French and German teacher. We live in an old farm in the mountains.
