TANDEM Santiago was founded in 1992 with the name of Escuela de Idiomas Violeta Parra, who was an undisputed artist and great promoter of Latin America folklore. Since 1996 the school has been a member of TANDEM International, adopting new commitments and methodological focus. Our school is very committed to our geographical context and it is for this reason we place a special emphasis on students to taste and live all of Chilean culture.
We provide an efficient and pleasant method to learn Spanish. Students are in direct contact with Chileans and their culture, often improvising and having fun with the language. We prepare students for official diplomas and certificates for their chosen language or subjects, since our center is also an official examination center in Chile. We have been recognized by the Instituto Cervantes as Official DELE Examination Center in Chile since 2008.
Our school is located near the famous neighborhood of Bellavista. Thanks to a well-connected public transportation system, parks, bookstores, bars and art galleries are all nearby. The school building was originally an old mansion of the early twentieth century. It has been declared a national monument of great patrimonial interest. We offer accommodation services too. We provide endless cultural activities, bringing the variety of cultures and landscapes ever closer to our students. Study with us and be part of our great family!
