Bielefeld University Tandem Program

1 Comment

I learnt about Bielefeld University’s Teutoburger World Tandem Program at the Welcome Center’s  international spouse and partner coffee morning (see post below). This is a great program if you are interested in having a conversational partner to speak German with. They recommend you are able to speak German at least around B1 level . The program is open to any native speaker of a foreign language who would like to be paired with a german student.  You also don’t have to live in Bielefeld to particpate as some students are happy to converse by Skype.

The Welcome Center at Bielefeld University offers a wide range of services for visiting academics and their families. Eleni and her team offer a warm welcome and speak great English.  I recently attended their  international spouse & partners coffee morning which was really informative and a great way to meet other international spouses like myself. The next coffee morning will be April 11th 10 am, details will be on their website and you can also email welcome@uni-bielefeld.de if you would like to attend or with questions.
