Specialist modules for STEM students

Italian-English face-to-face tandem modules

Tandem modules offer native speakers of two different languages the opportunity to work together in order to learn each other's language and to develop a knowledge of the target culture and community. Participants meet face-to-face with their partner once a week, in their own time and place, and help each other through friendly corrections and advice, completing a series of tasks based on their learning interest and needs as identified with the module supervisor.

These modules are usually offered in the Autumn semester only. English native speakers can only take these modules for credits, usually in addition to the corresponding general language module above. Erasmus French native speakers can, but do not need to take these modules for credits. Places on these modules depend on the availability of a partner in the target language. Please contact the Language Coordinator for further information.
