Individual Tandem

As a member of TANDEM® International we work with the copyright protected Tandem® method! If you are in Santiago for at least four weeks we may be able to arrange for you to meet a Chilean person on a regular basis for informal conversational practice. Your "Tandem" will teach you Spanish and you will teach him or her at the same time your own language. This is the most pleasant and efficient way to pick up improve and enjoy the Spanish language, having a close contact to the Chilean people and culture. If you are interested please ask for a questionaire by email.

Tandem Interchange in group

Every friday from 7.00 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. ;we arrange a group tandem activity, guided by one of our teachers where we mix up the English learners with the Spanish students of the school. They share 90 minutes practising English and Spanish together. This can be an opportunity to get in touch with the method and is free of charge for all of our students.

Tandem APP 

With over 5 million members, the Tandem app is the largest global community for language learners. Members of the community form one-on-one Tandem partnerships to teach each other their native languages for free via text, audio and video chat. Added features like message correction and in-app translations make it even easier for you to learn from your mistakes and extend your vocabulary. Choose from 150+ languages, connect with like-minded people and reach fluency in no time! Find out more at 

Tandem® Foundation

The Tandem®-Foundation is the academic arm of the schools, dedicated to investigation methodology and training service. All schools work with the Tandem method developed by the Tandem Foundation, which consists in counting on a native partner, the so-called tandem, to work out the classroom theory in a day-to-day and personal interaction.


TANDEM® Fundazioa

Tandem® International


Since 1996 we belong to the TANDEM® International Network, which is a association of independent language schools in Europe and Southamerica, that promotes language learning by means of exchange and partnership between two people of different nationalities in their free time. All Tandem Schools fulfil the every three years controlled Quality standards. Only those schools which are accredited by Tandem International can call themselves Tandem schools.
