Language Exchange Market

Would you like to improve your German and teach your own mother tongue? Or do you speak German and would like to share your knowledge and talk to international students in their native language? Do 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 it works: You fill out the form online or at Orbis and we will try to find a suitable tandem partner, depending on supply and demand. If two persons are successfully matched, the two of you will be introduced to each other briefly via e-mail. Then it’s up to you: meet up, get to know each other and let the conversation begin!
