Tandem Santiago - Spanish courses, Excursions, field trips, social activities

With our field trip program and our excursions, we want to give our Spanish students a deeper insight to the Chilean society. We offer a big number of activities every week. We have a welcome reception with empanadas and wine every Monday after the morning casses, Wednesdays we make a free guided field trip, Thursdays you can learn to dance Salsa and after this we practice the language in the Tandem Group Interchange. After the Interchange our Tandem Meeting is a perfect outing to a nearby pub to make friends and know nice people from Chile an all over the world.
