Tandem Language Exchange

Spouses/partners of graduate students are eligible to participate in the Tandem Language Exchange program at the Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research (CELLTR)

“Tandem” is a method of language learning that pairs up two people who want to learn each others’ languages. Let’s say you want to learn French and can teach Spanish, or you want to improve your English and help someone improve their Mandarin. This program pairs you up with someone on campus and facilitates casual language learning and conversation sessions.

It's free, and runs through a period of 8 weeks, typically starting at the end of the first month of the new term (i.e. end of January, May, and September).

Registration is required.
