Autonomous Learning - German

Our recommendations

With a Partner


Tandem learning is a great way to improve your language skills and make friends.

You look for a tandem partner who speaks exactly the language you want to learn yourself and help each other to learn the respective language. You are not tied to any course and can choose the learning time and content yourself. In addition, you get a more intensive insight into the culture of the target language. After all, you don't learn with a textbook, but have the expert right in front of you and can ask him what you want to know.

  •     You can search for tandem partners on the RIH website: Tandem Partners
  •     On the Seagull website you will find a variety of worksheets and suggestions to make your tandem-learning successful.
