EUniTa – European University Tandem



EUniTa is a language tandem platform allowing to match users automatically. Users can not only search for a tandem match based on language offered/searched but also for academic peers from the same field of study. EUniTa further offers video/audio and text chat functions, making third party tools for tandem communication redundant. Finally, EUniTa offers a large number of learning incentives from A1 to C1 in six different languages.
For language centers and other institutions offering tandem learning, EUniTa frees staff from manually matching tandems. EUniTa allows to process both online (distance) and face.to-face requests as users can freely choose a preference for either with each new tandem search.
