TANDEM Madrid is different! Our language school is innovative and takes a humanistic approach. We put passion, intercultural understanding and curiosity at the centre of the learning process. Opened in 1982, we offer a varied programme of Spanish courses, including for specific areas such as business, culture and tourism. Learning with us is a unique experience. Our teaching style is highly communicative and places particular importance on addressing the individual needs of every student.
TANDEM Madrid is accredited by the Instituto Cervantes and enables you to participate in official exams (DELE, CCSE, SIELE). The school also specialises in offering additional training for existing Spanish teachers. Teaching materials are constantly updated and reflect the latest innovations in foreign language teaching methods. Our teachers are highly qualified, motivated and experienced in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. The school’s management team is efficient and flexible. The advice and friendly environment we offer students make it easy for anyone to quickly learn and practice the language. For us, communication is everything. Our school is in a beautiful 19th century building in the ‘Paisaje de la Luz’ (UNESCO 2022), just a few minutes on foot from the Prado Museum and Reina Sofia. We offer language exchanges and an exciting cultural programme to complement our Spanish courses. A language course at TANDEM Madrid is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Madrid is Spain’s capital and largest city, located right in the middle of the country. It is extremely well connected thanks to a huge airport, rail links and motorways. The city offers a unique collection of art galleries and museums – most famously the Prado, the Thyssen Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum. Madrid has a flourishing theatre scene and sees major music events and concerts each year. It also has a green heart. The many parks, wide avenues and squares create a pleasant atmosphere. The city is home to the world-famous Real Madrid football club and its rival Atlético Madrid. The Salamanca district is known for its jewellery, shoe, leather and furniture shops. On and around the Plaza Mayor you’ll find a range of shops offering traditional items. Large department stores can be found around Puerta del Sol. El Rastro – the famous flea market – takes place Saturdays and Sundays between the Plaza de Cascorro, La Latina and Calle Embajadores.
