Learn a language in Tandem

Learn a language in Tandem
Tandem brings together two speakers of different languages who wish to learn the language of the other. The Tandem advisers at alpha beta piccadilly will find you a suitable partner and support you in planning and setting up your learning partnership. Instead of attending a regular course, Tandem partners decide when and how often to meet and what topics to talk about.
Language learning in Tandem is the ideal solution for people who do not have the time to attend a regular language course or don’t feel comfortable speaking in large groups. Here they have the opportunity to practice the language with native speakers in real situations.
 
Come visit us in the Tandem office! In Bolzano we are always open on Mondays from 4 pm to 7 pm. In Meran we are open on Mondays from 4:30 pm to 6 pm.

Honouring someone who really deserves it!

Honouring someone who really deserves it!

Over the last 30 years Aldo Mazza has made a name for himself encouraging the two South Tyrolean language groups to live together rather than just to coexist and for this he has been decorated by the Province of Tyrol. 100 years after the region was divided following the First World War, the award of the decoration to Aldo Mazza, a native of southern Italy, has a special significance. He came to South Tyrol some 50 years ago and with the founding of the Alpha & Beta Cooperative created an organisation that has always aimed at promoting intercultural communication and multilingualism. Today the cooperative runs both a language school and a publishing house. Really living together is an art, with language skills being only the first step along this path. Aldo Mazza's decades-long endeavours to achieve this have received official recognition with this decoration of the Province of Tyrol.

New Academic Year
"Living Multilingualism - between normality and challenge" was the introductory paper at this year's conference to inaugurate the new academic year for the alpha beta piccadilly team last Friday.

In addition to listening to Georg Stoumbos' presentation,  it was a good opportunity for us to celebrate the end summer and toast the new academic year, while interacting with colleagues from across South Tyrol in a relaxed atmosphere.
