In addition to conversation groups, TandemPlus can be a great resource for students to practice their speaking and listening skills. In the case of the following languages, we currently have more native speakers seeking partners than we do learners: Arabic, Chinese, Korean. If you are learning one of these languages, you are very likely to find a native speaker partner on campus.

If you would like to use a variety of languages in a fun, informal setting try the Small World Coffee Hour every other Friday.

To become more deeply involved with a language at the University, join a language-related student group.

Any groups we missed? Email tandem@umn.edu so we can help spread the word!
