ETandem logo


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) in close cooperation with  the International Relations Division organizes  the eTandem project twice a year, prior to international students’ arrival.

eTandem for Incoming International Students

The eTandem project has been recognised as part of E+VE Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange (, a pilot initiative of the European Commission (2018-2020).



With the “eTandem Learning – Pre-Mobility Project“, the University of Padua is among the 15 winners of the European Language Label 2016, a prestigious prize awarded by the European Commission to the most innovative projects that can contribute to language  learning through effective didactic practices.
