Counseling

Individualised advice can be given to intermediate and advanced students regarding language learning for English.  This can be helpful to students who require support concerning:

  • planning your language learning programme
  • effective language learning
  • special needs
  • autonomous learning

Please note that this service is not available for beginners.

Appointments can be made on Wednesdays from 16.00-17.00 hrs (englisch@sprachen.uzh.ch).

Before the meeting, you will need to provide information on the languages you have learnt to date and your aims in learning English.

Tandem Lernpartnerschaften

In Tandem Learning, two people with different mother tongues work together to improve their foreign language competence.
Tandem learning is independent from participation in a language course. Placement with a tandem partner is free of charge.
