About this app

Learning a language is made easier when it’s fun.

Whatever your language goal is, you can reach it through interesting conversations and new friendships. It’s easy: just choose a language, find a Tandem member with similar interests, and you’re ready to go!

Once you’re connected, it’s time to learn from each other and find fluency faster! Text, call, or even video chat – communication with your exchange partner is as flexible as you need it to be. It’s time to make progress on your learning journey together!

Learn, connect, and share with 1-to-1 chats or try out Parties, the ultimate group learning audio space. There are millions of Tandem members with just as many interests, so find your people – and start speaking their language today!

Choose from over 300 languages:

Tandem unites people across borders through language learning. The best way to keep up with our more interconnected world is to learn a new language AND understand the people and culture behind it!

Skip the tricky grammar tests and random phrases, just learn to talk about topics you’re interested in.

With voice notes, as well as audio and video chats, you can practice again and again until you’ve mastered those harder words and phrases.

Make the most of translations and text corrections so that you get it right from the first try.

How to learn languages on Tandem:

1. Build a profile
2. Share your goals and interests
3. Find the right exchange partners for you
4. Break the ice via text, audio or video calls

It works great over all, plenty of people to choose from, lots on the free side, audio messages are awesome, I just wish you could make flashcards out of the audio clips, they let you download them though. They stopped repairing bugs on android tablets which is just a little inconvenient.

Tandem is a great app. Though it seems a lot of people treat it like Tinder, in general, I've met very nice people on here. It's incredibly easy to meet new people. it also allows you to share your general location and those that choose to will be shown native speakers nearby, which is a great way to meet people and get in person practice - though I've yet to meet someone this way, it's q great feature that distinguishes it from its competitors

I like the app, but there's a problem with audio and photo messages (or really just messages in general). When someone sends me an audio message or a photo, I get a notification but the actual message never shows up. I've tried force closing the app, refreshing, waiting, etc. It just doesn't come. Also when I try to send an audio message, I have to close the app after I've sent it and re-open it to see if my message really did send. Otherwise, I'm not able to see it in the chat. I've accidentally sent audio messages multiple times because I would think it didn't send and then record a new one. Please fix!
