Skype-Tandem is the sequel to our J-Tandem.
The content is the same: Foreign students learning Japanese at Asahi Nihongo and Japanese students learning English or German at our sister school Ritter can mutually improve their language skills by meeting in a so-called tandem. But while J-Tandem is limited to Fukuoka, Skype-Tandem enables people from all over the world to meet with a Japanese friend face-to-face.
This offer is free and it is suited for Asahi Nihongo students wanting to keep in touch with their tandem partner after leaving Fukuoka. But also people who, for example, have never been to Japan before and are interested in getting in touch with the Japanese culture and Language.

1. Please apply by using the application form on our homepage.
2. Tell us a date and time of your choice for the tandem.
3. Asahi Nihongo will send you the contact data of your Skype-Tandem partner.
4. Log on to Skype at the agreed date and time and choose the account of Asahi Nihongo.
