The FH JOANNEUM are looking for tandem partners for their staff for a cultural or language exhange.
"The Tandem4Staff program is intended to promote the cultural, experience and language exchange of our employees. To this end, employees with an Austrian cultural background meet with colleagues of international origin. The language of communication for the tandem meetings is determined by the tandem partners themselves and can be German or any other language".

Partners can swap languages like in a traditional tandem, or just talk in their native language and enjoy a cultural exchange with no German needed.  Partners are free to decide what activities they would like to do together - museums, hiking, meeting in a coffee shop etc. There will also be support from the university to suggest discussion topics.
