answers and questions

faq´s

1 | What do I have to do to get a Tandem-Partner?

The first step is to register under the following link: Registration for Stuttgart or Registration for Bietigheim-Bissingen.

In the next step, we will look for a suitable tandem partner for you. Therefore, we usually pay attention to the tandem partners having a similar age and, if possible, that they live close to each other. Once a tandem partner has been found, we will contact you.

2 | How long does it take until I have a Tandem-Partner?

Finding a tandem partner can take some time and patience is required. We try to find a suitable tandem partner for you as soon as possible.

 

 

3 | What do I do with my Tandem-Partner?

You can decide that together. At your first meeting, talk about what you expect from or hope for in your tandem. Be it learning the German language or getting to know your new environment better. Clearly state your wishes so that your partner can address them. What can you show her? Are you for example particularly good at cooking? Together, think about how you would like to exchange – whether with regular walks around the neighbourhood, at dinner or in the library. It is important that from the beginning both of you know what the other wishes and hopes for.

4 | I am looking for an apartment – Can my Tandem-Partner help me with that?

In principle, this is possible if your tandem partner agrees. We can warmly recommend that you clarify your expectations at the beginning of your tandem partnership so that both sides know what to expect. In addition, when registering you can already specify what you expect and wish from your Tandem-Partner under the point “What would you like to do with your tandem partner?”.

5 | I want to get my driver’s license and then make an apprenticeship – Can my Tandem-Partner help me with that?

We are happy when you set your goals. However, please discuss beforehand with your tandem partner to what extent she has the time and desire to support you in learning. Everything our members do is voluntary; they are not paid for it and spend their free time with you. 

 

    • Alles was unsere Mitglieder tun ist ehrenamtlich, sie werden dafür nicht bezahlt und verbringen mit dir ihre Freizeit.
6 | I can neither talk German nor English – How can I communicate with my Tandem-Partner?

So far it has never been a problem, even if you can’t communicate so easily, you often find a solution (you can for example still cook or go for a walk). There are always women at our events who are happy to translate. Feel free to talk to them directly whether they can help you with your Tandem-Partner.

    7 | I am having a tough time getting along in Germany (authorities, doctor appointments…) – Can my tandem partner help me with that?

    In principle, this is possible if your tandem partner agrees. We can warmly recommend that you clarify your expectations at the beginning of your tandem partnership so that both sides know what to expect. In addition, when registering you can already specify what you expect and wish from your Tandem-Partner under the point “What would you like to do with your tandem partner?”.

      8 | How can my Tandem-Partner support me?

      It is important to us that both sides benefit from our tandem matching and learn from one another. When you get to know each other, feel free to talk directly about what your tandem partner can support you with and what you – for example – are good at.

        9 | My Tandem-Partner and I – we just don’t really fit together. What should I do?

        It is not bad at all if you realise after one or two meetings that it does not fit with you at all. It is only important that you talk about it. If you don’t want to talk to each other about it, feel free to contact us. We would be happy to act as a mediator between both of you and – if wanted – put you back in the index of “tandem seekers”. Even if you’ve met several times and at some point you realise that you don’t really have time for meeting up with your tandem, let us know so that we can take care of your partner and match her with another woman as soon as possible.
