Do you miss practising a foreign language? Do you need some extra hours but you don´t want to pay for it? There is an event called Language Tandem. It is a method of language learning based on mutual language exchange between tandem partners and that´s the best way of practising. We ESN KE had one of them on 28th of March 2017. It has taken place in Irish pub where not only Erasmus+ students but also public could choose between 11 different languages such as German, English, French, Slovak, Spanish, Russian, Turkish and the others to learn new words and phrases that you need not only during your Erasmus+ study but also during the summer vacation. There is an old saying: „The more languages you speak the more times you live.“ Many Slovak guests and great amount of Erasmus+ students and ESN-ers who participated were good evidence that the event was really successful.
How did Erasmus+ students like it? Evelina Glinskyte from Lithuania said: „It was the first tandem in my life, but it was amazing. I like that idea, it helps me to improve my language skills. Today I am learning Slovak language mostly cause I am missing some important phrases. Well, I really enjoyed this event. I liked that people were interested in Lithuanian language, they have learned at least few words. I had a chance not only to learn others languages, but also to spent great time with new people. ESN KE people are really helpful and it's cool that they organise such an events!“
During the one evening you can learn a lot of languages and make a lot of new friends. ESN KE thinks that´s the best way of spending your evening. If you didn´t participate don´t be sad there will be more tandems in the future :) !
