Initiative "Language builds bridges"

"Language builds bridges" consists of three programmes:

Language tutors

Volunteers proofread the scientific works of students from abroad in German, such as project works and final thesis, but also application letters, if necessary. The service is completely free of charge. The volunteers are citizens of Freiberg – pensioneers, students, employees.

Language mentors

Volunteers from Freiberg (pensioners, students, employees) meet with international students who want to improve their German. They spend free time and do something together, practising German listening and speaking skills.

Language tandem

Two people, each of them is teacher and students at the same time. Both teach her or his mother tongue to the tandem partner.

Would you like to learn and practice a foreign language in an uncomplicated way and, in return, teach your own mother tongue or any language you mastered? International students often practice their German skills with a German student.
The programme offers first-hand intercultural training.
