- Language exchange
Language exchange (sometimes called Tandem language learning) is a method of
language learningbased on mutual language exchange between (usually two) partners. Ideally, each learner is a native speaker in the language the other wants to learn. Many language schools in the world, as well as many universities, are working with this method.
Several series of tandem handbooks have been published in many languages as a result of the
European Unionfunded projects: [ [http://www.slf.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/Tandem/etandem/guides-en.html Tandem and eTandem Handbooks and Teacher Guides] ]
