After the registration is closed, we will try to find a matching tandem-partner for you. If this is successful, you can start the program at the beginning of the semester.
Core Components for all Participants
At the beginning of the semester, you need to 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 use the Tandem portfolio and further resources.
Throughout the semester, you will meet online on a regular basis (ideally once per week) with your tandem-partner for individual tandem sessions (at least 13 sessions of min. 90 minutes each) which you are required to plan and organize by yourself. In the accompanying moodle course, we give you access to additional material for successful tandem language learning. During the whole time, you need to keep record of your sessions in your Tandem portfolio.
Around the middle of the semester there will be a reflection session where all participants get together in order to reflect on their process in the tandem and your personal 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 version) respectively.
