IES Language Buddy Program

Hello,

My name is Meral Kölblinger and I coordinate the Language Buddy Program for an American study abroad program in Vienna, IES Abroad Vienna.  We have over 200 American students studying with us each semester.

I am currently looking for any fluent German speakers who are interested in being paired up with an American language buddy (American university student) to help each other practice the two languages. 

 
The only requirement of the program is to meet your buddy once a week in order to have a conversation! The purpose of this program is to not only practice English/German, but to get to know the other person’s culture. I will also be organizing a few Language Buddy events throughout the semester so you can meet more of our students. Attendance is not mandatory, but encouraged.

The program would only last until mid-May 2020, as the students will return to the U.S. then.

If you are interested or have friends who are interested, please fill out the following form: https://form.jotform.com/200153702662344

The students will read your answers and will pick you based on what you write, so please be as detailed as you can. I look forward to hearing from you!

IES Language Buddy Program Information

The only program requirement: Meet your buddy once a week until the middle of May, and (ideally) attend at least one of the Language Buddy events

How does it work?

Please note: Signing up doesn’t guarantee that you will get a language buddy.

  1. Fill out the Language Buddy Application Form (you will receive a confirmation email after you submit it).
  2. If an IES student chooses you, you will receive an email/text message from them; you will also receive an email from Meral confirming that you were chosen by a student as their buddy. Please respond to your buddy to set up your first meeting!
  3. If a student doesn’t choose you at all, you will receive an email from Meral informing you of this.

It’s up to you and your buddy to decide….

-WHERE to meet each week (recommendation for first meeting: a Viennese café!)

-WHEN to meet each week (same time, or decide spontaneously week to week)

-the DURATION of each meeting (typical duration: 1-2 hours)

-how to STRUCTURE your meetings

  • Decide how much time to devote to speaking each language (German and English) per meeting, e.g. 30 min German, 30 min English (if your buddy can speak German well)
  • Complete the Language Buddy Program “tasks/exercises” during your meetings (optional), or just have a conversation

January Breakfast

January Breakfast

It’s exam season and you are completely stressed out? Take a break to relax at the breakfast and fuel up by having some snacks and a hot drink.

The STV members are looking forward to seeing you there!

When: January 21st, 9:00-12:30
Where: Ground floor, in front of the Unterrichtsraum

Don’t forget: bring your own cup to breakfast and help the environment!
We couldn’t be happier that so many students join us every time. However, we’re also overwhelmed by the amount of trash that we produce at the end of each breakfast that we have. Therefore, it would be super cool if you could bring your own reusable coffee cups and bottles to the forthcoming breakfasts. 🙂
It would greatly contribute to reducing trash and help the environment. ♥
Thank you in advance!
