"Tandem" Service The Italian Language and Culture Center is associated with the "Tandem" network of international language schools. "Tandem" is a method which permits the expansion and development of language skills through inter-linguistic exchange. A "Tandem" is composed of two native speakers of different languages (Italian and another language) who are highly motivated to meet on a regular basis to improve their knowledge of the second language through an exchange of conversation in the two languages. These meetings, in addition to providing for the application and practice of what has been learned in class, offer the opportunity of becoming better acquainted with Italian culture through personal contact. The "Tandem" service puts partners with reciprocal language interests in contact with each other. This service is offered free of charge to students and can be requested at the beginning of each course.
