Description of Tandem: Language exchange

The language learning app where millions of people teach each other.

Languages are a 'learn by doing' kind of thing. This particular method is at the heart of Tandem, the global language exchange community. Connect with native speakers, start chatting and finally reach fluency in the language you’re learning!

Reach fluency in 300+ languages, including Spanish 🇪🇸🇲🇽, English 🇬🇧🇺🇸, Japanese 🇯🇵, Korean 🇰🇷, German 🇩🇪, Italian 🇮🇹, Portuguese 🇵🇹🇧🇷, Russian 🇷🇺, Simplified and Traditional Chinese 🇨🇳🇹🇼, and 12 different sign languages, including American Sign Language.

Why Tandem helps you to practice and learn languages:


For the times when you’re struggling to find the correct words, our in-app translation feature helps you compose a message or translate an incoming one.


Fit in with the locals and improve your speaking skills using voice notes, audio and video calls.


Help each other grasp the difficult parts of language learning with our message correction and comment features.


Forget strict schedules and learning by the book. Embrace your personal language learning style—whether that’s messaging, calling, or even meeting in person.



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.

The app is great. Sadly, most users are not online for learning. I only get messages from men, and not really different from what I have received in dating apps. With rare exceptions, men do not reply when I propose a serious language exchange. *** Update in Nov 2020: I tried again. I sent more than 10 messages to native German speakers, only 2 replied, and none showed interest in a real tandem partnership. I still think people see this app as a \"more subtle\" dating app, not a learning tool.

Puts you in contact with people really effectively, better than HelloTalk in my opinion. There\'s no public \"wall\" where you can post statuses, which I think has drawbacks but is ultimately a good thing because it keeps it from becoming a social media app. The messaging is a bit clunky, but still perfectly functional. The community is great, I had over a dozen messages on the first day all of people wishing to learn and help me learn.

Update January 3, 2021. I have had some interactions with the Tandem team but none of the suggestions has fixed the stability of the app. I have noticed several other reviews have mentioned the same issue. When this app works it is great and as a multiyear user I can recommend it highly. Unfortunately that is not the case right now. The app is not working properly and I cannot recommend it. Downgraded my review again. Instability problem persists and Tandem team is unable to fix it.

This is an amazing app. I got recommended this app after the author from the book I read told me about this app through a livestream. The community is great. I\'m introverted, so it\'s hard for me to engage in an initiation of a conversation and all my nervousness was for nothing as someone sent me a message which was a massive breathtaker for me. I would recommend this app to anyone that actually wants to learn a language.

I want to say so many good words to the developers and creators of this app. It\'s a simple idea. But they made it great. I love most how I can easily find partners who are interested in language learning here with no other focus. I can\'t believe I can start holding basic conversation from not being courageoua to talk in merely two weeks. Keep what you guys are doing! Many thanks

The function to see people in your city is behind a paywall. This means without paying a subscription you\'ll never actually meet your language partners. Deal breaker for me, it made me loose a great deal of time signing up. A process in which you also have to wait days to be verified... and another thing that you can skip if you pay. Sad because the app is well built, simple, and have active users.
Marc Carré 2021-02-03

This application has the potential to be great, but limits you in many ways, making it difficult to find the right language partner: 1) no way to search partners by hobby, 2) no way to search partners by languages THEY are learning, nor their level, 3) instead, it relies on suggestions which are not necessarily relevant, and it isn\'t clear what their algorithm is based on, 4) profile is too constrained to fully describe who you are, do so in several languages, etc. Very disappointing. 😔
Alan Ramos 2020-10-16

The app offers many typical language learning features: corrections, translations, and voice notes. However, the recent updates have all made the app more and more monitized. Their new stories feature which is basically a feed, common to most other social apps, can only be joined by an IAP that is separate from the Pro account. These updates are made instead of fixing things like bugs where your messages won\'t send or missing notifications.
Anantama Winstead 2021-02-12

Really good app. Free version has limits as any other applications, but not a problem. I recommend this if you seek language exchange partners. Be aware though, if you\'re not from a developed countries, chances of getting a partner is low. They\'d be reluctant in talking to you. I\'ve struggled finding partners but it\'s not the app\'s fault.
Pratyush Deshmukh 2020-10-18

I like most things about this app that\'s why I even got the pro version but the new update has ruined it for me. Most of my messages don\'t reach the other person immediately even when the other person is active at the same time. Sometimes it even takes 30 mins for a messege to deliver. It breaks the conversation apart. Try to fix this bug immediately because it is catastrophic for a messaging app to function in this manner.
