How does it work?

    You have created your profile

    You can modify your profile at any time. For the TANDEM to work as intended, please only indicate the languages for which you hold a spoken level that will allow fluent conversation (level C1 Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

    Search TANDEMs

    The profiles shown relate to the persons who offer a language(s) you are looking for. If you have chosen several languages, the sort field, located above on the right, will allow you to select the profiles by language offered.

    You have a found a profile that interests you.

    When you have chosen a profile that corresponds to your requirements, click on Request a TANDEM. This action sends an automatic notification to the person indicating that you are interested in forming a TANDEM with him/her. The person can then accept or reject your request.

    Received requests

    In this section, you will find the TANDEM requests that have been sent to you and to which you can reply by accepting the request. Your profile, together with your email address, will be accessible to the person and you can contact them directly in order to arrange the manner, location and date of your first TANDEM meeting. You can also reject the request. In this situation, the person will not have access to your profile nor your email address. He/she will be notified of your rejection by email.

    Requests sent

    If the person accepts your request, you will receive an email confirmation. You can then find the person’s profile who has accepted the TANDEM in the section My TANDEMs. The email of the person will be visible and you can then contact him/her and arrange the manner/location and date of your first TANDEM meeting.

    Request rejected

    Your request has been rejected. The person has decided not to make a TANDEM with you for whatever reason. His/her profile will not appear in the section My TANDEMs and you will receive a notification by email. Please contact a different person.
