Description of the event: 
As soon as we had a reasonable number of participants the tandem started. The first activity was a 'bingo' game about world places as an ice breaker while meeting new people, so the participants had to find people that had visited the countries/cities mentioned in the bingo.

The second activity was a 'speed dating'. It consisted on answering a list of questions in the language that participants wanted to learn. It evolved into a spontanious conversation. We were changing the groups every 10 minutes in order to prevent them from speaking during the whole activity with the same people. Most participants wanted to learn English and Italian. Six different languages were spoken: Italian, French, English, Portuguese, German, and Spanish.
