Episode I: Learning a foreign language by eTandem

How many times have you wondered where can I find a mother tongue in order to help me
learning a new language?
Certainly you can learn a new language at private school but it's expensive and time consuming...it could be tricky.
If you have a bilingual friend, you are very lucky because without paying while enjoying yourself you can learn a new language, but if you have an Internet
connection... you are lucky too!
Indeed you can join the eTandem community in which you will find other people, like you, interested in learning a foreign language.
How does it work?
Suppose you are Greek native (so you can teach Greek) and want to learn Swedish, by joining eTandem, you could find someone who is a native Swedish speaker and interested in Greek.
Then by helping one another you'll learn the foreign language.
Moreover it is an opportunity to know someone who lives in another country with traditions and background different than yours.
To achieve this, first, you have to sign up at the eTandem Project, and fill in your profile (name, language you want to learn, language you can teach, etc.)
The eTandem system will match as best as possibile your profiles with other members and establish a contact (by email) between you and your partner.
About one month after my registration, I have been communicating with my English partner for 7 days with email,and we'll start as soon as possible chatting and speaking...
