What is the UNIVERSEH-eTandem?

In the UNIVERSEH-eTandem partnership, two students from different partner universities with different first languages will work together using digital media to improve their language skills in English, French, German, Polish or Swedish. UNIVERSEH-eTandem learning is an autonomous learning method, in which both partners take responsibility for their own language learning.

The partners define their learning goals, contents, and schedule. It is not about formal teaching, but rather an informal language exchange where you can decide on methods and forms of learning. UNIVERSEH-eTandem is the perfect complement to more formal language classes and an attractive way to learn about your partner’s cultural background. However, the participants should be aware that the sessions need to be well prepared and should take place on a regular basis so that partners can gain maximum benefit from their learning.

You learn when and where you want using digital media.
You adapt your learning to your own needs and interests.
You make your learning dynamic, autonomous and flexible.
You get to know a new person and his/her culture.

UNIVERSEH-eTandem is also an excellent preparation for a stay at a partner university! If you are planning an academic exchange or an internship, the UNIVERSEH-eTandem Program gives you the opportunity to make connections beforehand.
