"As a former student, I am delighted to recommend TANDEM Escuela Internacional Madrid. I spent a total of eight weeks last year attending the school to improve and advance my Spanish. I found TANDEM’s teaching techniques and methodology"
"My experience in TANDEM was fantastic. After four months in TANDEM, my Spanish has improved a lot and now I am comfortable speaking Spanish. I recommend TANDEM to anyone who wants to learn Spanish very quickly in a very comfortable and pleasant atmosphere."
"Before receiving the scholarship, I had the dream of studying at a Spanish university. My teachers told me that it would be very difficult for me. However, TANDEM helped me to recover my enthusiasm. TANDEM is like a family and I am so glad that I had the chance to be part of it."
"All in all, TANDEM Madrid can only be described as an open, inspiring and intellectual place where teachers really care about not only you improving your Spanish but also your knowledge of Madrid as a place in itself, and that aim goes beyond the classroom."
TANDEM language exchanges, created and registered by Tandem International (also called TANDEM Partner), is a method of practicing languages with native people, in couples carefully selected by our staff according your age, background and interests, that can improve your language learning even more quickly. It’s a fun and effective way to learn Spanish and to make friends at the same time.
