About the volunteering opportunity

In our house live women (50 years +) who want to learn more of the German language and culture. For individual women we are looking for a tandem partner who would like to meet with them once a week to speak German, go for a walk, have a coffee, etc.

In this way, we would like to open a door for integration and give the women an opportunity to improve their language skills and gain a different perspective on life in Germany/Berlin. 

Your Tasks

  • Agreeing on meetings together with the resident
  • Communicating in (simple) German with the resident
  • Suggesting ideas to the resident: Going for a walk, having tea, trying board games or attending an event together, etc.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.

  • Adult women
  • Patience, openness
  • A warm and open attitude - be open to just talking and having a pleasant time with the women
