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:
- Spanish 🇪🇸🇲🇽

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
5. Join a group Language Party and listen in – or lead a Party of your own!

The app works great and it really gives the opportunity to communicate exchanging languages with people. You can meet great people who really want to learn a language. I do believe it should have an option for people who want something more, so people don't start engagement with second intentions. It's very annoying. It's not a dating app and unfortunately some don't make that distinction.

The app itself is great, (although finding good language exchange partners can take a while, as many users want to use it as a dating app or for other purposes). It's nice to find language lovers from around the world and speak to people in various languages. I highly recommend trying this app to practice your target language the way it is actually spoken and not just the most proper form.

2024 update. Decided to try the app again. Can't even finish account setup. Tried several times and the continue button won't work. 2021. Messages would not show in the chat and could only be read during notifications. Update: Tried to give a second chance since it had been a few years. Can't even log in. So buggy.
