We at PIASTA are always looking for motivated people who want to get involved on a voluntary basis. Join our team!
Want to help students to learn your language? Volunteer to be a coordinator and lead one of our language cafés! Your task is to get conversations going, help participants to find the right words, and create a relaxed atmosphere. It is a great opportunity to get involved in making campus life more international and opens the door to the field of language teaching. Coordinating a language café can also be recognized as part of the Certificate Intercultural Competence.
Interested in being a volunteer language café coordinator? Contact the PIASTA Languages Team: firstname.lastname@example.org.(piasta-sprachen"AT"uni-hamburg.de)
PIASTA language tandems provide 2 students with an opportunity to teach each other their native languages. Participating in a language tandem is an opportunity to develop your language skills while also getting to know new people and learn about a culture of another country.
Successful participation in a language tandem may also be recognized as Component C: International Campus of the Certificate Intercultural Competence.
