Language Tandems in Poznan?
Hello. I've heard that in some Polish cities there are organised "language tandem meetings" - where Polish and foreigners meet to talk and learn one another languages. Does anyone know if such meetings are organised in Poznan?
Re: Language Tandems in Poznan?
Thank you. I'm still interested.
In Szczecin language tandem meetings take place regulary once a week in one of the pubs in the city. Is there such a place in Poznan where one can meet and practice different languages?
