What is language exchange?
Tandem language learning is the process of joining forces with someone who is a native speaker of the language you want to learn. Through conversation with your Tandem partner, known as language exchange, you improve your language skills and develop intercultural competence.

Tandem’s core value is to unite people across borders through language learning. Languages hold great power for unity, inclusivity, and equality. Language and cultural exchange are keys to unlock global understanding in our increasingly interconnected world.

How to learn languages on Tandem:
1. Select the language(s) you want to learn in the app
2. Tell us about your language learning goals and your ideal Tandem partner
3. Search for native speakers of your target language in the community
4. Kick-off your language exchange experience by sending your first message
5. Share topics with the Tandem community so you can have meaningful conversations about what interests you
6. Keep up the conversation with your new Tandem “pen pal” and speak like a native in no time!

This app is awesome. Everyone I've chatted with is friendly, respectful, and helpful. A perfect compliment to Spanish classes or to an app like Duolingo. As a native English speaker, it can be a little overwhelming because everyone wants to talk to you so I get messages constantly. It took me about a week to realize that I can switch to "offline" when I need a break.

Edit: -1 star for the broken calls feature. It would be better to not include it at all. It's the best language exchange app I've found, but it's missing a lot of polish on the technical and design side. The system for conversation starters is also a bit lacking, and thus most people don't really utilize it well.

Great for: -Intermediate learners -having lots of short text conversations with people all over the world -getting someone to practice with really quickly Downsides: -can be difficult to find long-term consistent people -usually not that helpful if you're too beginner in your L2 -some people try to use the app to find dates/advertise/other stuff. I haven't really run into that, but its a good thing to keep in mind, especially if you're a woman. Definitely more decent people than weirdos tho.
