Language learning in tandem takes place when native speakers of two different languages work together in order to learn each other´s language and develop a knowledge of the target culture and community. Partners have the opportunity to give each other help through friendly corrections, advice, questions etc. Tandem learning is underpinned by principles of reciprocity - both partners should benefit equally from the exchange - and autonomy - each partner is responsible for their own language learning, establishing learning goals and deciding on methods and materials. Originally developed in Face to Face mode, email tandem learning is also used successfully by Sheffield students and their partners in EU institutions.
