The previous linguist's swaps I hosted went so well that I thought I would do another one. This swap is open to those who are bilingual or multilingual i.e. know at least 2 languages.

Requirements: please write at least an A4 sized page of 'basic' vocabulary to introduce one foreign language that you are proficient in , for example, so it is like a 'teaching' lesson. and then , please write the English equivalent of each of the words/phrases.

Participants are also required to enclose a small gift that they think their partners will like. This could be language related or something else. Have fun swapping! Newbies welcome.

What size is a4?? How do I find sizes of paper and envelopes for the future??

jenthewen 08/26/2013 #

A4 size is 21 cm x 29.7 cm

Here is a list of some common paper sizes with measurements in both inches and millimeters.

If you scroll down a bit in this Wikipedia article there's a more extensive chart.

Many people on here allow A4 and letter-sized to be user interchangeably since the area of the pages is so similar.

Can we type the A4 page? Or is it expected to be handwritten ?

jenthewen 08/27/2013 #

MKStreet, It can be either
