The Tandem Program

I did during all the year a Tandem program with a German student in the University of Zwickau, where I realized my Erasmus. The objective of the Tandem program is to create a group of two people which will help each other to learn languages.

In my case, I was with a German girl who study French and who will do an Erasmus in France.

Anna Elisabeth come from Cassel, in the west of Germany, and she study business administration and French since September. She is in the first year of a bachelor. We were both shy with each other when we started the program in October but, after few meetings, we started to be friends.

Generally, we meet each other at the library or in a café. We were talked during one or two hours, we asked for advices in German of French to each other, and shared our paperwork in those languages. We did all the corrections together. We have spent a lot of time to talked about our culture and the differences of our countries

Also, we had to realize a sort of diary together. We had to wrote articles in German of 300 words each week. We described in it all the activities, work, subjects of discussion we had done together. We had to send it at the end of the semester and we will get four ECTS at the end of the year.

I really enjoyed to do this program with Anna-Elisabeth because I learned a lot with her and she have significantly progressed in French. Now, we can easily talk in French together and she understand everything. Personally, she helped me a lot, especially because I started German in September 2016. Now, I’m able to understand some conversations, administrative papers and I start to talk a bit.
