Although I watch movies and read books in English for a long time I often can’t just say verbally what I want when I want it. Smalltalk isn’t the problem but when I want to talk about deeper things and express myself the same way as in German I can’t move on. That’s the reason why I started to improve my English with Tandem in July 2016.

Tandem is built around social learning. You have the chance to discuss and debate with natives and other language learners from all over the world. You can choose if you’d like to communicate written or verbally. Plus every written text can be corrected by your communication partner who helps facilitate discussion and encourages you along the way. This is why I wholeheartedly believe that language learning is best when it’s social – at least in my case.
