Tandem Santiago - Violeta Parra Spanish Language School

About our Spanish Language School in Santiago de Chile

Spanish language courses in Santiago de Chile.

Our language school was founded in 1992 as Escuela de idiomas Violeta Parra, and has since become a member of TANDEM-International -a network of quality schools- adapting the name Tandem Santiago since 1996.

We offer Spanish language courses at the school, family home stays and accommodation in boarding houses, hotels or apartments, assuring individual service in a friendly atmosphere.

Our Spanish language school is situated in a beautiful old mansion, built in the beginning of the 20th century, in Providencia -the modern Santiago- near popular parks, and little restaurants, just a few minutes from Underground station Salvador at the entrance of the famous "Barrio Bellavista". Since 1985 a profusion of restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, and small theaters have sprung up here. The neighbourhood is a magnet for students, artists and craftsmen.

The Name of our Spanish language school

Why is the school called "Escuela de Idiomas Violeta Parra"? Because through her art, music and poetry, Violeta Parra, a woman of many talents brought to life the true spirit of the nation. Because, for us, this popular figure best represents the people of Chile.


Gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto,
me dio dos luceros
que cuando los abro, perfecto distingo
lo negro del blanco
y en el alto cielo su fondo estrellado
y en las multitudes el hombre que yo amo...
