Different settings

There are several different forms of learning in tandem partnerships at the RUB:

  • In a face-to-face-tandem the tandem language partners individually arrange a time and day to work together or they meet each other as a part of a group. In group tandem courses up to 25 tandem language partners meet daily for two to three weeks. Group tandem courses are part of the courses regularly offered at the ZFA and are organized in cooperation with other universities.
  • The eTandem provides the opportunity to learn with learners via email (non-simultaneous communication) or via chat, messenger or Skype (simultaneous communication) - individually or in groups (group eTandem courses).
