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

First, two important things:

- Does this forum thread really work? I see lots of comments, but do these people actually get contacted? I wish there was a search by native language / learned language in this thread...
- The languages that I'm learning, I can also help with. E.g. if you have level A1 in Spanish or B1 in English or you are just starting with German / Swiss German I can definitely help you with those (share useful learning materials etc).

i) Language(s) that you are learning, including level:
English - I am proficient in English (lived in U.S. for 4 years, speak English at work, write in English, translate into and from English on a daily basis), but I want to speak / write closer to the native speaker level.
German Speaking B1, writing / reading B2.
Swiss German - Listening comprehension is A2 but speaking is A1. I have collected a lot of useful learning materials on Swiss German, I can share them with you if you're also learning (you know how scarce they are).

These languages I speak but am not learning right now:
Spanish - C1
French - used to be C1, but I haven't practiced it in ages

ii) Language(s) you speak natively:
Russian - I am not a professional teacher, but I have a linguistic education, so I not only know HOW to say something, but I also know WHY and WHEN you say it this way. I also have some experience teaching languages.

iii) Your location:
Reiden (Between kantons Luzern and Argau)

iv) Personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc):
Hiking, linguistics, psychology / neuroscience, strategic board games, environment / nature conservation, cooking / cuisine / drinking.

v) Short introduction about yourself
Communications consultant, currently work remotely for an international organization, married to a Swiss, lived in 7 countries (4+ years in Laos and U.S., studied 1 semester in Spain, a few months in Austria and Canada, and of course Russia and Switzerland).

Sorry for taking advantage of this kitten, it is here just get attention to my post!

Was wondering if this thread works... but I will try it out nevertheless!

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
Would quite like to learn Welsh! Have started on www.duolingo.com but with a native speaker it would probably be easier. Unfortunately, there do not seem to be any courses in Switzerland where I could learn Welsh - so I thought I would try here

ii) language(s) you speak natively
German / Swiss-German (native language), English (fluent, bilingual)

iii) your location
Central Switzerland

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
in general: reading, music, movies, etc.

v) short introduction about yourself
Student, just about to finish university and starting an internship soon.
