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

Hi!
I am learning German and my level is still basic. I do not speak it yet but I understand the most.. I think

Natively, I am Italian

I live in Zurich city

My interests are traditional stuff; dance, music, nature, food, natural medicine

I am looking for a patient tandem partner that speaks German, possibly to meet in the city centre of Zurich, to learn and improve my German. I am also interested to know more about the German culture.

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

Hi,


I'm learning German. Just finished B1, but still having hard times with speaking


My native language is Turkish. And I also speak English at a very good level.


I live in central Zurich.


I am a scuba diver. I do very much like music, reading, traveling, movies, cooking etc.


I would like to improve my German. I'm looking forward to meet someone speaking High-German (not necessarily native, but someone speaking fluently).
If anyone's interested to learn some Turkish or improve English, I will be ready to offer that in return


take care

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

Hi Alister

Have you already found your tandem partner?

I am very much interested in improving my English. Guess I am somewhrre between B2 and C1. I'd like to focus on business situations and language but not exclusively.

I'm German, work as management consultant, live in Zurich, have spent a couple of months in Manchester long time ago.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers
Matthias
