Tandem Santiago Spanish School – Excursions and social activities


With our field trip program and our excursions, we want to give our Spanish students a deeper insight to the Chilean society.

We offer a big number of activities every week. We have a welcome reception with empanadas and wine every Monday after the morning classes, Tuesdays and Thursdays you can learn to dance Salsa , Wednesdays we make a free guided field trip and Fridays in the afternoon the Tandem Group Interchange. After the Interchange our Tandem Meeting is a perfect outing to a nearby pub to make friends and know nice people from Chile an all over the world.

Tandem Interchange

Every friday from 7.00 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. we arrange a group conversation activity, guided by one of our teachers where we mix up the English learners with the Spanish students of the school. They share 90 minutes practising English and Spanish together. This can be an opportunity to get in touch with the method and is free of charge for all of our students

Tandem® Meeting

Every Friday night after the Interchange we invite everybody to join after 8.45 p.m. the open Tandem meeting at a pub in Bellavista, where people from the school and from outside the school meet for a talk, having a drink and having fun.
