RUG Language Buddy: one of your colleagues could now become your language partner!

04 July 2022

Did you ever consider having a language buddy to maintain your Dutch, English, Spanish, German, or any other language? With the launch of the RUG Language Buddy programme, the Language Centre and HR are now offering you the opportunity to find a language partner: namely, one of your colleagues!

RUG Language Buddy

A language buddy can help you to learn and maintain a language in an efficient and informal way. You’ll be linked to someone who is a native speaker of your desired language, and vice versa. In this way, you can learn from one another and get to know your colleagues in a fun manner!

How does finding a language partner work, exactly? You can fill in the registration form to indicate your native language and the language or languages that you’d like to learn. On the basis of this data, we will look for the perfect language partner for you. As soon as we have found a RUG Language Buddy for you, we’ll put you in contact so that you can start practising each other’s language together. We will also provide tips on how best to practice together, and we will refer you to handy websites that can help you in efficiently learning languages together.

This service is specially intended for UG staff members. With staff members representing over 120 nationalities, the UG comprises a world of possibilities. So, there will always be someone for you! Who will your match be?
