Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - HU International

Language exchange market

You would like to improve your German and teach your own mother tongue? Or you speak German, would like to share your knowledge and talk to international students in their first language?

You want to learn more about another culture and tell someone about your own? Then sign up for the language exchange market of our international club “Orbis Humboldtianus”!

How does it work? You just fill out the form online or at the Orbis and Juliane will try to find a suitable tandem partner every Wednesday from 12 to 14, depending on supply and demand. If two persons are successfully matched, the two of you will be introduced to each other briefly via mail. Then it’s up to you: meet up, get to know each other and let the conversation begin!
