Language Tandem Program
The Language Tandem Program is the organization of meetings between two students with the purpose of improving language skills. Tandem may be organized between two Georgian or one Georgian and one foreign student. The Linking of students is for the sole purpose of improving language skills.
Tandem students meet on a regular basis. They are responsible for arranging the time of the meeting, the duration of which is limited to 1 or 2 hours. During the first half of the meeting sides communicate in one language, during the second half they switch to another language. It is up to participants of the meeting to choose the topic of the conversation. This is a great way to study language in a comfortable and friendly environment.
In order to participate in the Tandem Program, students of the Ilia State University have to submit their CVs and Motivation Letters to the Student Service Center: Address: 32 Ilia Chavchavadze Ave., room #C 219.
As a rule, tutors are third or fourth year students who already possess experience studying at the university, are familiar with its structure and general rules. Each tutor is responsible for helping freshmen with orientation in the university structure and handling of different organizational issues like obtaining/changing of student card, finding information on credits, payment of tuition fees etc. If desired, a tutor can also be helpful for general orientation in the city, purchase of public transportation tickets, getting familiar with places of interest etc. The main idea of the program is to deliver a student-to-student experience to the freshmen about studying at the University. This kind of relationship will ensure rapid and effective integration of new students into the University community.
Generally speaking. the Tutor Program has been establishment for assistance between local and foreign students, however, it is also possible to link two Georgian students.
The relationship between the tutor and his or her partner will be supported by the Student Service Center. It will aid new students overcoming administrative challenges and help them get involved in different cultural events.
