eTandem is a form of peer-to-peer learning at a distance. Students can deepen their linguistic and cultural knowledge (both oral and written) by using several tools (videoconferences, WhatApps, Facebook, Instagram, Skype, chat, e-mail, etc…).
CLA (University of Padova Linguistic Center) organizes various eTandem projects which start in different periods of the year.
eTandem for Incoming International Students
The eTandem project is now part of EVE Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange (https://europa.eu/youth/erasmusvirtual), a pilot project launched by the European Commission in 2018 that aims at promoting intercultural awareness through technology-enabled facilitated discussions, and enhancing 21st century skills of students and young people.
