In Each One Teach One (also known as Tandem in some universities), the students teach each other their languages and culture in pairs or small groups. The course brings together students from various cultural and language backgrounds. The pairs or groups schedule their meetings independently, and each student keeps a learning diary on his/her teaching and/or learning process. It is recommended that each student acts both as a teacher and a learner, but it is also possible to participate only as a teacher or a learner. The pairs or groups are encouraged to meet in different settings and engage in various activities during the course. The students develop their skills in a given language, learn about other cultures, as well as improve their teaching and group work skills.


The students
- plan their meetings
- meet 10-15 times (1-2 hours at a time)
- produce a learning diary on their learning and/or teaching process and outcomes

The students are encouraged to find suitable partners or small groups (max. 6 people) by themselves. However, after the enrolment, which must be done via the separate enrolment form (https://lomake.tamk.fi/v3/lomakkeet/26304/lomake.html, fill in the form before 27.1.2019), the coordinators of the course will give every student recommendations for suitable pairs or groups. Please note that sometimes it is not possible to offer every student a suitable pair or group (for example due to the lack of students teaching a given language). All students accepted to the course will receive information by email, and they should attend the kick-off info on 30.1.2019 at 15:00 in G00-10. Please do not enroll in Pakki before you receive an email stating that you have been accepted on the course!
