TANDEM Hamburg e.V. has been teaching so much more than 'just' languages in a lively and committed way since 1985. You find here first-class German and Foreign language courses; being an authorised examination centre for the TestDaF, the European Language Certificates (telc Deutsch A1, B1 and B2) and the WiDaF we offer internationally recognised certificates as well.
Our way of teaching
We design our classes in a communicative and activity-based way, using a variety of playful activities and methods. Grammar will be brought to you in a clearly understandable and applied form.
We are placing great emphasis on personal interaction and listen as well as respond to our clients' individual desires and requirements. Therefore we work purposefully in small learning groups of six or seven students on average and train the four skills listening and reading comprehension, writing and especially speaking. You will be working with a carefully selected class book, which will be added to using other current materials.
Our language trainers
Our language trainers have an academic training background, are native speakers and have a broad teaching experience. They enjoy teaching and are happy to share their enthusiasm for their language and culture with their students. Many of our trainers have studied or worked abroad and are therefore experts in cooperating with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
In order to constantly monitor and improve our work, we place great emphasis on keeping up a process of quality management with regards to our offers. This is done with the help of client feedbacks and by independent external sources (Weiterbildung Hamburg e.V., TANDEM International), and also by creating and implementing our own quality management system.
Since 2016 TANDEM Hamburg has been a certified institution for the promotion of vocational training according to Social Code III. Auditing is done by the certification agency 'Hanseatische Zertifizierungsagentur' (HZA).
TANDEM is a method of learning languages through exchange. The idea is simple but fascinating: "I will help you learn my language and you will teach me yours." TANDEM will help you use the language you are learning outside the classroom, make you learn a lot about different cultures and help you make new experiences. Please come and see us to find out at our TANDEM wall whether there is a TANDEM partner for you.
TANDEM Hamburg e.V. is a member of TANDEM International, a network of independent language schools in Europe and overseas.
