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

Hi all,

I'm looking to learn french. I learnt it in school for many years, know the rules, and understand the language when spoken but cannot speak much myself, so I'd like to practice conversation.

I can offer in return to teach English and German, both of which I speak fluently (mother tongue)

I live in Morges, Vaud, but could also meet in Lausanne if necessary.

Personal interests include travelling, wining and dining, socializing, water sports.

I am from South Africa and lived in Zurich for 10 years and have now moved to the french part of Switzerland.

Hope to hear from you!

1. I am interested in learning French. I am a relative beginner with some knowledge.
2. English is my native language, and my high German is excellent so it would be possible to do an exchange for both.
3. Am in Nidau near Biel but willing to travel within reason.
4. Am a professional classical musician and love to talk about, well, music. Other good topics include personal develoment, psychology, life in Switzerland ... Hobbies include meditation, film (looking forward to Harry Potter!), relaxing and drinking coffees in Switzerland's numerous cafes, decorating my apartment.
5. Originally from the US, 30 years old.

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

I was looking for a thread like this!

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
German (just started A2 course in school)
English (I do not know my level... maybe so so?)

ii) language(s) you speak natively
Japanese (Yes, I am a Japanese!)

iii) your location
Basel

iv) personal interests(eg sport, film, music etc)
music, reading, writing, taking pictures, etc.

v) short introduction about yourself
Currently I live in Basel since last Nov. I go to language school but it is not enough for me. I also want to practice my English, so it would be great if we talk in German and English.
To tell the truth, this is the first time for me to teach Japanese.
But I write articles for a website in Japanese recently, and have worked as a PR for a fashion company in Tokyo for 2 years, so my experience might help you to learn Japanese!
