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

i) language(s) that you are learning, including level
English, advanced level (hope)

ii) language(s) you speak natively
Russian

iii) your location
Saint Petersburg, Russia (Time zone UTC+3).

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Chess, boxing.

v) short introduction about yourself
I'm looking for a mate to practice English via WhatsApp, Skype or something of the kind. As I mentioned above, my level seems to advanced (self-critically). Anyway, I can watch video in English and even understand something. Reading, writing are ok. Listening is worse. But speaking skill is rusty.

The idea: we'll take a general textbook (teaching reading, writing, listening, grammar) + a textbook on phonetics. And we'll imitate just an ordinary class: some 20 minutes of phonetics, then checking homework and discuss it. Three times a week at the time convenient for both of us.

As for textbooks or materials, I have already found some. If you don't like it, I'll try to find something else. Anyway, everything will be free for you. Or you suggest something.

Looking forward to your answer.

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

French A2-B1
Spanish A1
German C1 (High German mixed with Swiss German)

ii) language(s) you speak natively
English

iii) your location
Zurich

iv) personal interests (eg sport, film, music etc)
Current events, films (MCU, comedies, fantasy), hiking, travelling

v) short introduction about yourself

Looking to improve my French. I learned it in school for nine years and did a month immersion in Quebec, but over a decade of non-use and the introduction of German into my brain has taken its toll. The online Klubschule placement test put me at A2, but I feel I should be better than that. I want to be able to converse in the language again.

I can help you with your German at an intermediate level if you don't need English. I work in German and am very comfortable speaking it. It is mixed with Swiss German, but this might be exactly what you need if you're transitioning from High German classes to speaking with the Swiss on the streets.

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

Hallo , Here comes mine !

i) Language(s) that you are learning, including level:
German: Intermediate. Can comprehend and read well.
But Terrible at writing and Speaking.

ii) Language(s) you speak natively:
Fluent in English, Swedish, Tamil. Can also help in other nordic languages minus the Finnish. That is an odd one that one.

iii) Your location:
Stockholm

iv) Personal interests
Outdoors near rivers and mountains, photography and read and write a lot
I enjoy driving much, exploring places and very much purse meditation related science and activities.

v) Why?
I am here because i just love the Swiss/Alpine-German sounds and way of communication. The intonations, the accent all are sheer joy to my ears. First fell in love with the language on my work trips to CH and ever since so, I try to keep in touch with it It's just a lot of SRF and documentaries now but hoping to meet and speak to a fellow human instead ...

vi) Me ?
27, M . Liveing in Sweden since 2015 and I work in Electrical Engineering and Research activities. But far from being purely that, I enjoy art and poetry and philosophy (overused term) very much

Merci vielmal,
/K
