What is language exchange?
Tandem language learning is the process of joining forces with someone who is a native speaker of the language you want to learn. Through conversation with your Tandem partner, known as language exchange, you improve your language skills and develop intercultural competence.
Tandem’s core value is to unite people across borders through language learning. Languages hold great power for unity, inclusivity, and equality. Language and cultural exchange are keys to unlock global understanding in our increasingly interconnected world.
