How do I become a sponsor / promotion member?
Perhaps you are interested in promoter status within the Tandem
Foundation. This status was created for people employed at
university, adult education centres, and comparable public
institutions, which do not offer language courses as such (and
cannot obtain member status or a licence) but who would like to use
tandem internally and in exchange projects.
Promoter status offers the following advantages:
* Use of materials without copyright restrictions of those
materials developed within the Tandem network:
- Tips for tandem pairs in Albanian, Arabic, Basque, Bulgarian,
German, Danish, English, French, Italian, Latvian, Polish,
Portuguese, Serbo-Croatian, Slovenian, Spanish, Czech, Hungarian,
Turkish (on paper or electronic).
- Tips for reading comprehension for tandems for special
purposes in Basque, German, English, French, Italian, Portuguese,
Spanish, Slovenian ( e.g. paper or electronic)
* Support with diploma work, for example, and any assistance
required by graduates working on a tandem-related topic.
* Orientation with the help of the research register and access
to our collection of material (reference library).
* Receipt of 'Tandem News' (in electronic PDF format, printable)
three times annually.
* Automatic forwarding of teacher training programmes,
announcements of the International Tandem Conference (ITT) and of
news items from the Tandem Network.
