After registration is closed, we will try to find a matching tandem-partner for you. If this is successful, you can start the programme at the beginning of the semester.
Core Components for all Participants
At the beginning of the semester, you take part in a one-time introductory session at the University Language Centra (ZFA). Here, you will learn more about the main principles of tandem language learning (e.g. learning strategies) and how to utilise the Tandem-Portfolio and further resources.
Throughout the semester, you will meet with your tandem-partner regularly (normally weekly) for individual tandem sessions (at least 13 of min. 90 minutes each) which you are required to plan and devise independently. By way of a complementary Moodle course, you have access to resources for tandem language learning. Moreover, you need to keep record of your sessions in the Tandem-Portfolio.
About midterm, you will get together with other participants in a reflection session in order to reflect on the development of the tandem and your learning experience so far.
Further components and requirements depend on whether you intend to obtain a confirmation of participation or credit points. Which components are mandatory for each case is outlined in the following sections and, in detail, in the module description (CP-variant) and syllabus (certificate-variant) respectively.
