**Don’t just learn a language - get speaking straight away with new friends**
**The no.1 app for video language exchange, best education app 2015**
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.
So how does it work?
- Select the language(s) you want to learn during registration
- Get matched with partners that align with your language goals
- Share topics with our learning community to find partners that share your interests
- ‘Follow’ your partners to make sure you never miss a chance to practice
- Leave reviews to recommend your partner

Improving your language skills is easy and fun with conversation exchange! On Tandem, you can instant message, send voice clips, share pictures and chat via video with your friends. Enjoy smart messaging features like in-app translation (powered by Google Translate) and correction, with games to help you with your video language exchange.
It’s as simple as that: Tandem brings speaking foreign languages to everyone, anytime, anyplace.

What's New in Version 2.6.2
In our latest version, we’ve been working hard to get rid of those frustrating little bugs and make our messaging better than ever.
I love this app! It's completely free unless you want to pay for a tutor and you can meet people all around the world! You can play language games with them, video or voice call them, and just talk with them. There's a translator that comes with it and a corrector so if the person you're talking to said something wrong you can correct it easily. It's honestly such a good app and I definitely recommend! Hopefully they don't ruin it with updates like other apps do.
Great way for those seeking language pen pals
This is a really great app, more so for younger language learners (12-18). This is one reason I prefer this over HelloTalk which is also good but directed more towards adults, a design not meant for young teens. I've connected with many though I have yet to try the face call but there a many people willing to help you learn languages.
