What alternatives do I have if I still have not found a tandem partner?

We match tandem partners throughout the semester. Generally, we are able to match 70-80% of all applicants. Therefore, we would like to ask you to be patient if it takes a bit longer to match you with someone.

If we are unable to find you a suitable partner, you can get in touch with native speakers of your target language by other means:
