Information for Osaka University students|タンデム学習プロジェクト(大阪大学文学部・文学研究科)

What is Tandem Learning? In Tandem Learning you will be paired up with someone who is 1) proficient in the language you are learning and 2) learning a language you are proficient in, making it possible for you to learn from each other. Advantages of tandem learning: You can choose the content and method of learning. 2. How do you learn in tandem learning? Example: A 90 minute session of a pair of Japanese and English speakers Reflection (5-10 mins) Talk about what you have learnt by yourself over the past week. Learn from each other (60 mins) Learning English (30 mins) Learning Japanese (30 mins) Making plans (5-10 mins) Arrange a next session: when to meet, what to do, which resource you need, etc. Tandem learning with more than three people has proven to be less effective. Please divide the tandem session into two parts: one for your learning and the other your partner’s. 3. Learner autonomy Your partner in tandem learning is not a language teacher.

5 Free Language Tests To Boost Your Learning Power - 90 Days to Language Learning Glory

I used the Spanish test numerous times while doing my 90-Day Challenge at LingQ, and although I didn’t always test well at first, I kept at it until I got a better score. That didn’t mean that I suddenly spoke Spanish at an intermediate level just because the test said I did, but it did boost my confidence as my score got better. I found several other proficiency language tests around the web, and decided to channel my inner polyglot by trying them out in different languages. Transparent Language Test Transparentlanguage.com is serious about their language testing. I decided to give their Swedish test a go since Danish (my native language) and Swedish are pretty similar. The test starts out with multiple choice grammar questions that are actually pretty hard. It turns out that I am intermediate in Swedish. Bridge Online Language Test.
