Language learning is all about connecting with new people. Books and videos are boring and repetitive. But having a conversation is fun, interesting and spontaneous. With the Tandem method, talking with native speakers is easier than ever. You never know who you’re going to meet, or what you might learn!

Total Immersion Right at Home.

You used to have to travel to really put your language skills to use. Now all you need is a iPhone or iPad, an internet connection, and a sense of adventure.

Practice Speaking About the Things You Like.

Want to talk tango? Learn about linguini? Or maybe discuss Dostoevsky? Our app is full of cool, new people who are interested in the same things you are.

Make New Friends Around the World.

Meet Lisa from Lisbon at the bus stop. Chat with Carlos from Chile in the library. Talk to Jiro from Japan in your own backyard. Millions of people around the world want to speak with you.

A Tandem is the best way to learn, practice and speak English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and many more. We have native speakers from all around the world who you can practice languages with. Our most popular languages to exchange are English, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, Italian, Chinese, French, Japanese, but have over 120 languages covered for you to learn and practice.


"It's awesome! It’s taken my Spanish to a whole new level. My learning was all grammar and vocabulary, then I discovered this app and just started talking to native speakers from all over the world! Suddenly it all felt so easy. I never had so much fun learning a language!"
-- Sabina, 23

"In the past I've found it really difficult to find a language learning partner. With this app I chatted with about five different people the first time I used it!"
-- Philippe, 26

"I've always enjoyed learning with a Tandem partner, but it’s hard to always find the time. Being able to pick up my phone and video chat with someone on our app makes it way easier up to keep up with my language practice - plus there are some super awesome people to chat with :)”
-- Irene, 21

Customer Reviews

Awesome App for who want to making new friends and learning new languages!!

I've been using this app for only one day but I really have to say it's awesome!!! You can chat to people all around world and their purpose is learning which I don't have to worry about someone gonna offend you or harassment. Really good free app, this team is definitely doing a nice job!

Excellent app but one important flaw

This app meets all my needs that other popular apps couldn't. There are many friendly people eager to learn and teach which I love. However, a great addition would be that people should need to be approved as your friend to send you chats, pictures, video calls etc. like on Facebook. Unfortunately I've had to block numerous people.


I have always wanted an app like this and now that there is one I am quickly on my way to learning another language!!
