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

Love it

I studied Spanish for years and did not practice. Using this app is bringing it all back to me. It's very similar to any other immersive language course but mixed with Skype. An educational take on having a pen pal. Bonus points that if you need help or app support, you get a rapid response. You can choose to speak only to people of your own gender, and you can decide what ages. There are rules against unwanted contact and as a woman who just wants to learn and not be creeped on, this feature is huge. I had to report one person and it was dealt with within an hour. Love this app.

Great App

A truly cool app. I wouldn't say it's the best app to learn a language from scratch (try Duolingo) but in terms of becoming more fluent, it works well if you are consistent. I'm sure some female users get some attention unrelated to language learning, but for the most part, people are respectful and willing to help you out. Just do not expect anyone to "teach" you the language; not many people have the time to just tutor you. Instead, expect small corrections in your conversations so you learn on the fly

Incredible App

I don't ever take the time to rate apps but I had to for this one. If you're looking to learn another language through chatting and casual conversation this app is the one for you. I studied Spanish for years but stopped and never touched it again until now and it's been helping me so much. The people in the app are also helpful and most are great with English so you can easily have help as someone who needs the very basics. It's like a modern day pen pal around the world!
