Language Buddy

av Anne Berit Helland sist endret 2017-05-11T11:39:31+00:00
Language Buddy is our new project for those who want to learn a new language while getting to know a new person. As a language buddy, you may "exchange" your language with another person who wants to learn your language.

What is Language Buddy?
Language Buddy is a casual way of learning for those who want to learn a new language. You get to know another person who wants to "exchange" languages with you - that is, if you have Norwegian as a native language and want to learn to speak French, you will have a French speaking friend who wants to learn Norwegian!  This form of exchange is called "tandem education" and has been used both at universities and libraries earlier.  

Become a language buddy!
To become a linguistic buddy, fill out the form below and give some information about yourself so that we can find a language buddy that matches you. It may take some time for you to get a language friend because we try to find people who are best suited to each other. We basically connect only people of the same sex, and if possible in the same age group and with similar interests.

Mutual learning
For the first time you meet in the library, and then choose where, when and how often you would like to meet. Experience shows that it is best to meet regularly, such as once a week, but at least every other week.

  • The two of you find out together how you best want to learn
  • You are welcome to use the library as a meeting place
  • Keep in mind that Language Buddy should be useful to both - for instance by spending as much time in both languages
