Language Buddy System

The University of San Jorge, one of our partner universities in Spain, is offering current Cardiff Met students, along with students from a wide variety of other universities, to be a part of a language exchange programme.

The concept? Simple: you get matched up with a student who speaks the language you want to improve, and you speak in that language for half of the session, then English for the other half. The idea is to get native speakers to help each other improve and exchange ideas. This is entirely online and free.
