Cultural news, sports, politics and free-time activities…

Coffee and news imageCoffee and News (Café y Noticias) is a free booster class in Spanish, an hour and a half of extra class which is included in all the Spanish language programs. In the class, students find out about and debate sports, politics, social and cultural issues in Spain and Latin America. They do this using a variety of media resources and social networks, guided by our highly experienced teachers. In order to participate, students must have a minimum level of A2.

Usually every Wednesday, from 13.30 to 14.45, students can participate in Coffee and News. Teachers have a coffee or tea with the students while debating current affairs and other fun subjects. We also like to visit Spanish media outlets and arrange meetings with journalists and popular bloggers. Subjects such as football, social movements, celebrity culture, Spanish and Latin American politics are all part of this class.
Coffee and News is a fun way to learn or improve your level of Spanish and a comfortable and easy way to find a steady conversation group and make sure you practice Spanish weekly. It is also an efficient way to prepare for an oral Spanish test or gain confidence in your daily use.

In order to learn Spanish, it is necessary, in addition to assimilating linguistic concepts and their common uses, to acquire a practical knowledge of all aspects of the countries in which it is spoken. Through a critical and comparative reading of the news of each country, we can understand in depth the culture and society of those countries and also discover new interests, new places to visit and new things to learn.

Do you dare to discover Spain and Latin America with us? Join one of our weekly Café & News events.

Our Business Spanish courses are designed for professionals who want to succeed in the working world by improving their knowledge of the Spanish language.[… view +]

Business Spanish is gaining popularity every day, as the importance of the Spanish language in the world is indisputable. It is the second most widely spoken language in the world by number of native speakers, and is the official language of 21 countries. This gives people interested in doing business with these countries an important competitive advantage when learning Spanish and the culture of these countries.

Professionals looking for work in Spanish-speaking countries also need a solid knowledge of the language in order to be able to carry out their activities with confidence and advance in their careers.

It should also be noted that Spain, and especially Madrid, is a gateway to Spanish-speaking countries, as it is the only Spanish-speaking country in the European Union, and has very good relations with other countries.

All classroom activities are directly related to several areas of the professional environment and include intercultural contents about the Hispanic community. They are specially designed to prepare advanced students for the Commercial Spanish exams ‘Certificado Básico’, ‘Certificado Superior’ or ‘Diploma de Español de los Negocios’ of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Madrid.

What is SIELE?


SIELE is “The International Evaluation Service of the Spanish Language”, an online evaluation and certification service to test Spanish language ability. It is suitable for students and professionals alike, whose mother tongue is not Spanish and who need to demonstrate their linguistic ability to academic institutions, businesses and public administration.

It is a certification promoted by the Cervantes Institute, the University Nacional Autónoma of Mexico, the University of Salamanca and the University of Buenos Aires. Working together, these institutions ensure the highest standards of quality and good practice in test design as well as using the great linguistic variety of the Spanish speaking world.

Advantages of SIELE:

  • It is useful when looking for work.
  • It helps businesses certify the Spanish language level of a prospective candidate or of its employees.
  • If you want to study in a university or study for a Master’s degree in any Spanish speaking country, it will attest to your knowledge of the language.

SIELE certifies the candidate’s Spanish language ability through a modular exam made up of five sections:

1. Global SIELE:

This exam

Recognises your Spanish language level worldwide. It consists of 4 tests which correspond to the 4 communicative language skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking). The total length of the exam is 3 hours and the highest mark is 1000 points. Having completed the exam, you will receive an internationally recognised certificate which is valid for 2 years. It includes a mark related to the language ability levels of the Common European Framework Reference and, in addition, a numerical score from 0 to 1000, which is the sum of all the scores obtained in each test.

Independent tests:

2. EXAM S1

Recognises your reading and listening comprehension skills in Spanish worldwide. (reading comprehension + listening comprehension)

3. EXAM S2

Recognises your level of reading comprehension and written expression in Spanish worldwide. (reading comprehension + written expression)

4. EXAM S3

Recognises your level of listening comprehension and oral expression in Spanish worldwide. (listening comprehension + oral expression)

5. EXAM S4

Recognises your level of oral expression in Spanish worldwide. (oral expression and interaction)

The SIELE exam is modular. It can be taken in one block, in the form of SIELE Global which includes the four skills previously described (reading, writing, listening and speaking) for which you receive a certificate recognised worldwide, and valid for two years.

You can, however, also take just one module of the exam which relates to the skills that you need to demonstrate, for example: oral expression and interaction (S4). Having taken one or several of the independent modules of SIELE, you will receive a certificate that is valid for two years. This includes the marks obtained in the test/tests taken alongside their corresponding Common European Framework Reference levels.

Among the many factors that make TANDEM Spanish school unique in its sector, is its ability to innovate and create different things that stimulates the Spanish learning and make people to have experiences equaly unique and special. We give a great importance to knowledge of Spanish and and Latin American’s culture, as an inseparable part of understanding the language.

For this reason, we created a series of cutting-edge special Spanish courses that combine art, tourism and new technologies in order to increase understanding of the language and Spanish culture at the same time that we provide students with an enriching and memorable stay with us:

  • Spanish course traveling by Spain: through this course, students can take a course with other TANDEM schools in other Spanish cities within the same stay. With the added bonus of not having to pay enrollment fees in other cities you choose.
  • Spanish Online AVE: or Aula Virtual de Español (Spanish Virtual Classroom) is an educational environment on the Internet created by the Instituto Cervantes in collaboration with TANDEM where we can learn Spanish without having to attend a classroom. A good starting point to do a Spanish course in Madrid later.
  • Long-term Course: offers the same features as a short intensive course, but for stays longer than six months. It is very useful, for example, for young people who want to deepen their Spanish to go to a university in Spain.
  • Super Learning Spanish Course: a revolutionary method based on Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Suggestopedia, able to deliver learning results quickly and in a more pleasant way.

Spanish and a passion

  • Spanish with passion for gourmet cooking: it brings the best of Spanish cuisine along with a deep understanding of related language and vocabulary.
  • Spanish with passion for art: Madrid is one of the most important cities for the art in the world, hosting great museums with works by some of the greatest artists of all time. With this course you can learn Spanish art while learning the language.
  • Spanish with Passion for Small Museums: in addition to major museums such as the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen, Madrid hides amazing museums that often go unnoticed by their size, but they’re enchanting by the masterpieces they hold.
  • Spanish with passion for flamenco: Madrid is considered the world’s capital of flamenco as the center which brings together most of the production of this artistic genre. Learn Spanish while you immerse yourself in this authentic form of Spanish art.
  • Spanish with passion for wine: for wine lovers, nothing better than doing a Spanish course while participating in visits to wineries and tasting sessions.

Given the growing importance of Spanish in the modern world, more and more people are interested in getting some kind of certificate attesting their language levels that will help them to improve their resumes. The first certificate that you can get is the one issued by the school where you take your Spanish course. For this, it is important to choose a prestigious school and mainly if ir is accredited by Instituto Cervantes as TANDEM (see more reasons to choose TANDEM Spanish School).

The Instituto Cervantes is the only public institution that offers an internationally recognized certificate to attest the level of Spanish as a foreign language (ELE) of students and teachers. Through its DELE (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language), held together with FEDELE (National Federation of Spanish Language Schools), you can officially demonstrate that you have the level of Spanish that you declare. For this reason, TANDEM Madrid puts special interest in creating a DELE exam preparation course that is really effective and motivates students to take on the challenge of passing the tests and then gradually improve their language skills, until they’re able to reach the level C2, “Mastery”.

Another certificate highly demanded in Spain is the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Madrid. For this reason we created the Business Spanish for the Chamber of Commerce course, to better prepare professionals from anywhere in the world to pass this certification. In addition to the course, organized visits to several important companies in Madrid, such as El Corte Inglés, Bosch or Avon.

Both with DELE and Chamber of Commerce certificate you can demonstrate the level of Spanish you have, either for work, university or government examinations. But on top of the official title there is the personal satisfaction of being able to achieve it, and this ability that you acquire will be useful in many aspects of your life.

Please check our complete list of Spanish courses.

The importance of the Spanish language for the business world is indisputable, that’s why we created different Spanish for professionals programs. It is the world’s second most spoken language in terms of native speakers, with over 400 million people, behind Mandarin Chinese. It is the official language of 19 countries, most of them in Latin America, the second most studied after English worldwide, and the third most used on the Internet. It is the second most spoken language in the United States, where more than 40 million people speak Spanish. And among all places in the world where you can learn Spanish, Madrid is probably the most important city for business (read the reasons to study Spanish in Madrid).

Aware of the special needs that professionals learning Spanish in Madrid may have due to their work, we have created some courses for them in a flexible way and focused on the student, as TANDEM usually does. The busiest and those who need to learn quickly can choose the Private Spanish Classes, where the student will have a unique teacher for him in each class, and students themselves define the content of the lessons and learning pace. The Business Spanish courses can give professionals a good insight on Spanish language, mostly if they’re planning to obtain an official certificate. They can also opt for the Immersion Spanish Course, which is also offered on a tailor-made basis, and can be combined with the TANDEM Cultural Program, where they can choose between cooking classes, wine or olive oil tasting, movies, etc.

In addition to tailor-made courses, extensive Spanish courses were also created for professionals, although they are suitable for any person who has little time to learn. In fact, any course of TANDEM can help professionals in their careers, but we wanted to differentiate some of them in order to meet specific needs.

And of course, also we think of the future professionals when we design our Spanish courses. With the Spanish course and Internship in Madrid, students from all over the world have the opportunity to learn Spanish in TANDEM and then do an internship in any major Spanish company. Madrid is home to some of the most important companies in the world, so doing a training here can be an excellent choice.

Please check our complete list of Spanish courses.

Unlike the intensive Spanish courses, which offer a greater number of lessons per week for people who normally travel to Madrid for less time, extensive Spanish courses are mainly chosen by people already living in Madrid and prefer to study in a more relaxed way over a greater number of months. Is also designed for people who, because of their work or studies, have fewer hours each week to study Spanish. But it’s possible to hire an extensive course for less time, since 4 weeks.

One of the most demanded extensive courses is the Friday or Saturday Extensive Course, offered one day per week. This course is offered especially for those who work or study during the week and only have time on weekends. There is also a Two Days a Week Course that is offered during the week for people who have more time available in weekdays. They are held in different days of the week, depending on the student’s level.

Among those who choose extensive courses we can find both students and workers, but it is mostly demanded by professionals who want to pass an exam like the Chamber of Commerce of Madrid certificate or just improve their language skills to improve their careers. That’s why our Business Spanish Course has a good acceptance among our customers. See also our list of Spanish for professionals programs. Another type of professional that requires quite often our extensive courses are the ones who take care after children, or “au pairs”. The Au pairs Spanish Course offers the possibility to foreign people living with Spanish families to learn the language faster, enhancing it with what they’re already learning from the daily relationship with their hosts.

Therefore, before deciding what course to choose, consider your time availability and how quickly you want to learn Spanish. The logic is that the more classes you take, and for a longer period of time, the faster you will learn. But TANDEM have options for all learning needs you may have.
