This master thesis focuses on tandem learning, which is a special form of learning and teaching languages. The theme "learning German and integration with the help of tandem" is looked at from a pedagogical point of view. The aim of this study is to introduce the tandem learning as a possible approach to learning German and integrating adult migrants and showing an alternative to language training and (linguistic) integration. First in the theoretical part the basic definitions are clarified and the outline of the demographic structure of Austria is shown, and the themes, integration and language, language training for adult migrants, as well as adult learning is explained. The research leads step by step to tandem learning through the analysis of the theory. The qualitative-empirical study verifies and completes the themes discussed in the theoretical part. In the empirical part interviews with experts which were conducted with six adult migrants taking part in a tandem will be analyzed using qualitative content analysis by Philipp Mayring. The results of the research show that in tandem the specifics of adult learning are taken into consideration and they enlarge upon the special needs of adult migrants. Furthermore, an ideal tandem allows a better access to the host community and possibly contributes to a better support of integration through the common, cooperative learning with Austrians. A successful tandem, however, requires certain factors such as a suitable partner, learning motivation of both learners, mutual sympathy and assistance. In addition to the performance of migrants not only openness and willingness to cooperate but also the interest of members of the host society is essential.
