The TANDEM International Schools Network

One of the characteristics that makes the TANDEM International School Network unique in the world is its ability to group very diverse schools into a democratic and collaborative partnership. Different countries, different languages and different realities are united through human and solidarity principles to promote their mutual growth, inspiring people to learn, connect, and engage with foreign languages in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Diversity makes us more human, unity makes us stronger.

TANDEM International history

The name “TANDEM” and its history are strongly associated with language exchanges as a method of learning. This is why we consider it our sign of identity.

There were several trial studies in the 1960’s and 70’s. Finally in 1979, Jürguen Wolff developed the procedures for exchanges between German and Spanish students in Madrid. In 1982, Wolff joined forces with a teachers’ cooperative in Madrid – it later became TANDEM Madrid.

Throughout the 80’s the organization grew through the formation of a horizontal network of partner schools. Each one maintained its individuality, but all of them shared some values and teaching methods. In 1994 this network was consolidated at the TANDEM Fundazioa, based in San Sebastian, Spain. Subsequently, in 2003, TANDEM Fundazioa shifted the focus of its work to universities and NGOs, and the partner schools created TANDEM International for the joint promotion of private language schools.

The TANDEM International School Network is currently comprised of 19 schools, teaching 4 languages in 20 cities of 6 countries. We are open to incorporating new schools into our association, as long as they share our values and are able to pass a strict selection process, to ensure that they meet high quality standards and are permanently committed to people in the first place.
