TANDEM Berlin e.V.

TANDEM Berlin has been offering active language learning for many years now. Our goal has always been to combine learning a language with meeting people and sharing cultural experiences. One excellent way to do this is to supplement language courses with language partners alongside a language course.

TANDEM Berlin was begun in 1983 by a group of enthusiastic language teachers. They were looking for new directions in language teaching and were inspired by the autonomous "learning in tandem" idea, hence Tandem Berlin e.V. was born.

Right from the start, Tandem Berlin was run by a team, as it is to this day. Although there are no more members of the original founding generation, the non-commercial approach has remained. This is reflected in the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, which is so appreciated by our course participants.

Since the early days, our language school has changed a great deal, and grown a lot. This has meant several moves. In 2011 Tandem Berlin moved into attractive new premises in "Bötzowkiez", a neighbourhood within the inner city district of Prenzlauer Berg.

Our language courses are based on effective communication and they work. Qualified teachers, small groups and a relaxed atmosphere guarantee that all participants receive optimal support and encouragement and make quick progress. Whatever you're learning it should be fun!



We offer furnished rooms in private flats in Berlin, enabling you to be able to reasonably priced accommodation that in addition gives you a much more direct experience of Berlin life.

All rooms offered to our students have been first checked for suitability by TANDEM staff.

The accommodation offered is centrally located, with a maximum travelling time of 35 minutes using public transport. Only very few guest rooms are within walking distance of the school.

You will have a single room. The rooms are all furnished with the use of kitchen and bathroom facilities.
