TANDEM Bielefeld is all about intercultural exchange. Our team of highly qualified foreign language teachers are native speakers with a passion for education. They want you to have as much fun learning German as they have teaching it. At our school you will find a friendly, personal atmosphere focused on supporting students individually. People from all around the world have been coming to learn German with us for years and enjoying many new experiences in the process. We are continuously working on new teaching methods and offer you varied and motivational language lessons. We pride ourselves on the informal, relaxed atmosphere between the school directors, teachers and students, which will quickly make you feel at home with us.

We are located just five minutes on foot from the historic old town and main shopping arcades. Our school is in a converted historic factory building with large windows and bright rooms. In the courtyard, you’ll find a garden where you can enjoy the breaks between classes.

Our core learning objectives are all about encouraging you to speak and apply what you have learned to everyday life, as well as gaining sound grammar skills and building your vocab.

Learn German in Bielefeld!

Bielefeld, with its 343,000 inhabitants, is where city life and nature meet. In the centre, you’ll find a small but charming old town and a large pedestrianised shopping street and mall, perfect for a stroll or a spot of retail therapy. The Sparrenburg, a 13th century castle, stands on the Sparrenberg hill some 60 metres above the city and is part of Bielefeld’s distinctive skyline. There is also an idyllic lake – the Obersee – on the city’s edge. This a perfect place for walking and jogging, just like the nearby Teutoburg Forest and Bielefeld’s many parks. A city on the forest’s edge offers the luxury of clean, fresh air. Bielefeld is a peaceful and safe place to live. It is also a diverse university city of music festivals, dance shows, concerts, art exhibitions, flea markets and much more.
