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

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
I'm learning German. I am beyond B1, but I have some way to go to reach B2, especially in terms of vocabulary.
ii) language(s) you speak natively
Greek is my mother tongue, but I also speak English flently (C2). I also write English professionaly, for a US-based marketing firm, but I wouldn't dare to consider my self a native speaker as I've never lived in an English speaking country or spoke the language regularly.
iii) your location
Zurich, near Oerlikon
iv) personal interests
My personal interestes include sports (primarily basketball, but also football), politics, history, languages, travelling

v) short introduction about yourself
I've been in Zurich for almost three weeks, looking for an engineering job, but also trying to improve my German language skills (I study 4-8 hours daily, plus try to engage in conversation with locals-luckily they are kind enough to answer in Hochdeutsch).

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

Hello all, forum newbie here!

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
I'm learning French and have a fairly basic level, but not starting from scratch. I'm able to string sentences together, but conversation is a bit tricky!

ii) language(s) you speak natively
Happy to offer my native English

iii) your location
Lausanne

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
I'm interested in all kinds of things, but here are some - creative writing, politics, psychology, history, football, US comedy (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development etc), cricket, philosophy. Oh and cake!

v) short introduction about yourself
My name is Pete and I've moved to Switzerland under three weeks ago. I don't know many people here so feel tandem could kill two birds with one stone in terms of socialising and learning at once. I guess I'm a fairly inquisitive person, always learning and reading (mastering very little!). Enjoy good conversation, which has obviously been a bit tricky since moving out here and something I already miss.

Hi there,

Language ability: - Fluent English (Native)

I am a 37 female and Married. Please message me if this suits you too. Thanks.

I've been living in Zurich for over two years, currently working part-time as an English teacher (teaching adults), which means I can be quite flexible when it comes to meeting times.

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

I want to learn German. I am a complete beginner, though I have been *slowly* absorbing rudimentary vocabulary in the year I've lived here

English

v) short introduction about yourself
I moved to Zurich from London in August 2015. I don't work here, though I am a journalist by profession -- I spent 12 years prior to the move to Switzerland working for a national broadsheet newspaper in London, mainly editing other journalists' copy but also occasionally writing too. I'm therefore pretty well versed in the finer points of English grammar
