**Don’t just learn a language - get speaking straight away with new friends**

Billions of people worldwide are learning a foreign language. But getting the chance to speak is a challenge when you’re learning German in Georgia, or Portuguese in Peru, or even Swedish in Siberia.

You’d learn much faster if you had a friend to help you. What if there was a way to befriend a native speaker and practice any time, any place, totally for free?

Enter Tandem, where you can speak any language.

On Tandem, there are over 2 million people having fun and learning 150+ languages together in more than 2500 combinations, from English to Spanish to Farsi to Mongolian. Learn Latvian, improve your Indonesian, or even practice Persian all in the same app. You can even learn sign language on Tandem!

Learners have been using the scientifically proven Tandem learning method for decades, where two people meet in person to teach each other their native languages. The Tandem app is the first to bring the conversation exchange experience to everyone with a smartphone.

What's New in Version 2.7.7

Lucky for you, we’ve made it easier than ever for you to start your first language exchange with our new Checklist feature. Follow our simple steps once you’ve onboarded to tick off activities and track your progress.

We are sorry to report that app bugs don’t hibernate over winter, so our pest controllers/developers have been hard at work tracking them down and fixing them for this update.

Love the app but a lot of misusage

I love the app, but I feel some people really have to understand it’s a language learning app, not something else.
