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”!

Here's how it works: You'll 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!

Registration form for language exchange

Due to the current situation, in-person office hours during the lecture period for the language exchange market in Orbis are cancelled until further notice. Additionally, the kick-off event at the beginning of the semester must unfortunately be cancelled. However, we will still be taking care of matching tandem partners so that online language tandem meetings can take place. 

  • Language exchange meeting

At the beginning of each semester everyone interested can get to know each other at a language exchange meeting. Through communicative games, you can meet new people and find new friends or language partners through conversation. The language exchange meeting takes place on .... in the International Club "Orbis Humboldtianus", room 1068 of the main university building, Unter den Linden 6. You're most welcome to come by and join the fun!
Use this opportunity to learn other languages, brush up your language skills and broaden your horizons!
