This experience makes the school stand out and ensures a high quality of teaching for all students. Another one of the school’s strong suits is its wide range of courses, for all ages, interests and levels, including not only its teacher training courses, but its combined Spanish courses with cultural elements such as gastronomy, flamenco and literature. With its top-quality teaching and facilities, you can’t go wrong with Tandem Madrid.

The people that attended me before I left did so with punctuality and with detail and attended my every question.
The entire trip has been great, interesting, and useful for the mind and heart.
My kids really enjoyed the course in Barcelona. They´ve made new friends and they would have liked to stay longer...Thanks to all the staff at Dencanto Community, we felt safe, helped with everything and we knew we could always count on them.
