TANDEM cultural program

TANDEM Cultural Program is specially designed for foreign students taking a Spanish Course in TANDEM Madrid. The program combines culture and leisure, enabling students to truly experience Madrid, an open city with a vibrant culture and leisure offering, avant-garde and modern, so they can enjoy the city as if they were citizens, not mere tourists.

Everyone involved in the Tandem Cultural Program is either a teacher at TANDEM MADRID or a qualified teacher of Spanish who is also specialised in art, cinema, theatre, etc.

Find out about our cultural program every week in FACEBOOK or in the event’s page of this site.

TANDEM cualtural program

¡NEW!

Now you can book a large number of cultural and leisure activities tailored to your needs. We select the best programs in Madrid and we help you to find almost any activities you can imagine.

Just a few metres away from one another, masterpieces by Goya, Velázquez and Picasso are visited by people from all over the world. Grand museums and great artists who are an essential part of the History of Art. THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE OF ART: three of the world’s most important art museums can be found within a ten-minute walk of one another and less than 10 minutes from TANDEM Escuela on foot. The Paseo del Arte (The Art Walk) is the name given to this area delimited by the Museo del Prado, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS), the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Caixa Forum.

All these museums are included as essential visits in the Tandem Cultural Program. They will be visited with a Spanish teacher with a degree in Art, who will not only explain the must-see exhibits in these museums, but will also teach vocabulary and concepts in Spanish related to painting in general and each painter in particular. It’s a Spanish course that will allow you to discover some of the most important sites for the Spanish art.

This consists of a historical tour of the streets and buildings of Madrid, enabling students to study Spanish through the city’s history and cultural heritage. Students will be able to practise their Spanish by reading inscriptions and texts in the streets and buildings they visit, as well as the texts included in their didactic material, always accompanied by a teacher of Spanish.

Among the most interesting routes offered by TANDEM are: “Legends of Old Madrid”; “The Madrid of the Austrias or the Bourbons”; “Medieval Madrid”; “El Retiro: a park for kings” and many more.

Madrid offers a vast variety of cuisines: you can enjoy home-style food as well as the most daring and innovative dishes. We have international cuisine from all over the world and the best ingredients. The kitchens of Madrid prepare the most surprising modern dishes. For this reason, within the cultural program, we organise WINE AND OLIVE OIL TASTINGS, COOKING CLASSES AND COOKING PARTIES.

Just two hours away from Madrid there are nine locations that have been listed as World Heritage sites by the UNESCO: Alcalá de Henares, Ávila, el Monasterio y Real Sitio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Paisaje Cultural de Aranjuez, Toledo, Segovia and Cuenca, which are ideal complements to a visit of the city. Every weekend we arrange an excursion with a teacher from TANDEM who will show you the wealth of culture these World Heritage sites have to offer.
