Tandem Program

Project for international students and VSE students. To break down the language barrier, the national and international students are paired according to their preferences to exchange knowledge of their mother tongues and get to know other cultures.
It is a great opportunity:

  • to experience different cultures
  • to become more familiar with the Czech language
  • to meet someone who has been studying your native language and who is interested in your native country and all the things you can tell them about it

Usually there are pairs, sometimes smaller groups of students, and they meet once a week or as often as they can/want and whenever they want (school, pub, party, dormitories, etc.). It is up to you to enjoy the time you spent together!
International students that participate in this project can get a language certificate saying that you have worked here as a voluntary teacher from Buddy System!

If you want to take part in more language activities with Czech students, follow the information about Buddy Café Lingea – social evenings devoted to various languages.

Language Courses

At the beginning of each semester exchange students get a great opportunity to apply for a voluntary teaching job at VŠE. As a native speaker you are the right person to teach in one of our language courses.

The offer of foreign languages is broad:

  • English,
  • German,
  • Spanish,
  • French,
  • Russian.

Being a teacher for a semester enables you not only to earn valuable work experience proved by a certificate but also to become closer to local students and Czech culture. The classes take place once a week in 90 minute sessions. An average number of students in one class is 8. For further information do not hesitate to contact us on: bp@buddysystem.cz
