E-TANDEM

You write emails on specific topics over several weeks (approx. four to six weeks), correct each other and communicate twice via videotool.

E-Tandem procedure

  • Preparation

    After registering for the E-tandem language course via Stud.IP, the tandem team will provide you with the contact details of a tandem partner.

    If the E-tandem is part of a language course, the email topics are prepared as part of the language course.

  • Course schedule

    You write two emails per week to your tandem partner: one in your foreign language and one as a reply in your mother tongue. The latter will contain corrections to your tandem partner's email.

    Each email should be sent in CC copy to e-tandem@llc.uni-hannover.de.

    From the third week of the course, you should communicate with your tandem partner via videotool. These video sessions can be done from home.

    Please note: For some courses two video sessions (60 - 90 min) are compulsory.

    If you would like to receive ECTS credits for this course, you must keep a tandem portfolio during this time.

  • End of course

    The course ends after six weeks.

  • ECTS credits

    Participation certificate:

    • writing eight emails in a period of four to six weeks with error correction of your tandem partner's emails.

     

    Certificate of achievement: two to three ECTS points (no grade).

    • in addition to the requirements for the certificate of participation, two video sessions of 60 - 90 minutes and the submission of the tandem portfolio.


VIDEO TANDEM

You will communicate with your tandem partner three to eight times during the semester via videotool.

Video tandem procedure

  • Preparation

    You register for the video tandem course.

    The tandem team will give you the contact details of your tandem partner.

    • First you write an email to your tandem partner.
    • In this email, you discuss with your tandem partner on which day and at which time you would like to conduct the video tandem sessions.
    • Together with your tandem partner, find a suitable time for both of you.

     

    When doing so, please always put the coordinators in CC: e-tandem@llc.uni-hannover.de

  • Course schedule

    You should prepare for each video tandem session.

    After the first session, you will attend the language learning consultation.

    You will have three to eight video conversations (depending on the course) with your tandem partner during the semester.

  • End of course

    After the end of the course, send the video tandem portfolio (video transcripts with glossary, reflection of a video conversation and evaluation of the tandem work) to e-tandem@llc.uni-hannover.de.

  • ECTS credits

    Participation certificate:

    • writing an email
    • three to eight video tandem sessions (depending on the video tandem partnership)
    • language learning consultation after the first video tandem session

     

    Certificate of achievement: two or four ECTS points (no grade)

    • submission of the video tandem portfolio: video transcripts of a video conversation and evaluation of the tandem work

FACE-TO-FACE TANDEM

You meet with your tandem partner and work independently with him or her in direct contact. This means that learning together takes place at face-to-face meetings. The tandem pair decides how often, when and where they meet. Face-to-face tandem learning is not bound to semester times.

Face-to-Face Tandem procedure

  • Preparation

    You meet with your tandem partner and discuss together how you want to organise your meetings.

    You will then attend the language learning consultation (first meeting) together with Ms Schelm or in the tandem office to discuss your learning goals. If you would like to receive ECTS credits for your tandem participation, draw up a syllabus with the language learning consultation and create a tandem portfolio.

  • Course schedule

    You meet once or twice a week for 90 minutes to study together. Each of you will keep a tandem portfolio in order to receive ECTS credits at the end.

    After about four to five tandem meetings, you will attend the language learning consultation again (second meeting). If necessary, you can make use of the language learning consultation more frequently.

  • End of course

    After eight joint meetings of 90 minutes each, the tandem course is finished (for the Spanish AVE courses there are a total of five meetings of 90 minutes each).

  • ECTS credits

    Participation certificate:

    • five to eight meetings with your tandem partner and one language learning consultation.

     

    Certificate of achievement: two to three ECTS points (no grade)

    • one additional language learning consultation with Ms Schelm or Ms Manrique (Spanish) and submission of the tandem portfolio.

LANGUAGE LEARNING CONSULTATION

The aim of the language learning counsellors is to support the tandem pairs in their foreign language learning and to help them to take responsibility for their own learning process and to find efficient ways of learning together.
