TandemPlus Summer Events

The summer TandemPlus program is in full swing, we are hosting many events to allow participants to meet each other and use their language skills in a fun, relaxing way.

On July 20, 2015 TandemPlus and the Arabic program co-sponsored an Eid Lunch to celebrate Eid al-Fitr and the end of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting. Approximately 14 Arabic learners and 14 native Arabic speakers, along with staff from the Arabic Department, TandemPlus, and MELP, enjoyed a lunch of falafel, chicken shawirma, tabouli, hummus and other treats from Wally’s Falfel in Dinkytown. Beautiful Arabic music played, students learned about the new Arabic Language & Literature Club (UALLC), and many new conversation partnerships were made.

The next TandemPlus event is next Tuesday, August 4 at Punch Pizza in Stadium Village, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Stop by for some pizza and meet new and old friends. This event is open to all TandemPlus participants, paired or unpaired. It’s a great way to wrap up the semester. See you there!

Summer registration will close on Friday, July 31. If you are looking for a foreign language conversation partner, register today at tandem.umn.edu.
