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.

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.
