The Language Exchange Program, hosted by the Harvard Language Center, provides members of the Harvard community the possibility of practicing informal conversation with a partner who speaks their target language. The purpose of the language exchange, or "tandem," is to allow partners equal time to practice their desired languages. All Harvard community members, including spouses and partners of faculty, staff, students, and visiting scholars, as well as alumni and retired faculty and staff, are eligible to participate in the exchange.
Please read our "About" page for detailed information about the Exchange. The Language Center is a source for possible partnerships only, and is not responsible for initiating or maintaining contact between prospective partners. When you register for the program, you must agree to its terms.
