    Tandem is the best Spanish school ever! I have just finished five weeks. Every teacher is so great and passionate about teaching Spanish. I had a really wonderful time. The classes are diverse, fun, and encouraging. Not to mention how incredible it was to live in San Sebastián. I have had the best five weeks. Thanks, Tandem, see you next summer!

    Just had three weeks at Tandem and it has been an amazing experience. It was everything that I wanted from my summer: a fun and productive environment for learning Spanish, well organized and varied planned activities, and a great bunch of course mates, as well as people running the school. I went for the surfing add-on, which worked really well. The instructors were amazing despite taking some hits from waves! Overall, an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend and seriously consider doing it again. Thanks, Tandem.

    I have lived here since November 2015. A relatively short time ago and I am far from fluent, but I can absolutely say with confidence that I speak Spanish. The two-week intensive course I took here a month into my residence was instrumental in getting me to this level. Excellent, patient teachers with an attitude towards fluency and casualness rather than exams, gave me a perfect grammatical launchpad for all my independent study that followed. Now, I have friends with whom I speak exclusively in Spanish and others with whom I can change language without warning. I can confidently exist here without restraints and teach English to my own students with the confidence I can translate anything, as well as inspiration in the correct way to teach a language, because I received that here first.

    Excellent school, very friendly and professional, always attentive to your needs. The accommodation where I stayed was walking distance from the school in the beautiful old town, with friendly and adorable Spanish persons. Also, the new town and beach are not far away from the school. The lessons are made by competent and nice teachers, with whom you learn and process a lot. Free Wi-Fi is available at the school, it is really appreciable.

    We (my husband, nine-year-old son, and I) had a wonderful experience at Tandem. I learned an amazing amount of Spanish in three weeks and wish we could have stayed longer. The teachers are very adept at meeting each student at his or her level and pushing to get each student conversing in real situations as quickly as possible. I loved our teachers; they were very professional but also very approachable, friendly, funny, and helpful with whatever questions we had. The office staff was also very helpful and responsive by e-mail in our time leading up to the course.

    It just felt right after talking to Idoia at the front desk to choose Tandem. I was extremely happy with the teachers. The leisure and cultural program is very diverse, something for everyone. It is a very welcoming, friendly environment that helps make school less stressful. The teachers are great and seem to enjoy their work.

    I liked their website and I had some questions before I signed up, so I called Tandem. Ederne was very nice, her answers were very helpful and I felt very welcome. During my stay, I learned a lot. Everybody is really nice and I had a great time at Tandem and in beautiful San Sebastián.

    For me, it was a wonderful introduction to the Spanish language and culture. It has made me want to know more. Next year, hopefully, I will be more advanced and come back.

    Ich kann die Tandem Sprachschule nur weiterempfehlen! Ich verbrachte 4 sehr schöne Wochen in San Sebastian und besuchte in dieser Zeit die Sprachschule. Der Unterricht war organisiert und immer entspannt. Alle Lehrer haben mit einer sympatischen Art unterrichtet und ich habe mich immer wohl gefühlt. Meine KLasse war super :) ich nutzte den Aufenthalt um meine Grammatikenntnisse und den Wortschatz zu verbessern. Auch mit dem Freizeitangebot und der Organisation in der Schule war ich sehr zufrieden! Die Kombination mit dem Surfkurs hat ebenfalls gut geklappt und dank der super Lehrer konnte ich in der 1. Woche schon einige Male aufstehen :-)

    Einfach eine tolle Zeit und gute Vorbereitung für meine Prüfung, danke Tandem! ich würde nochmal vorbeischauen.

    Quelques bouchons à la frontière, mais ça vaut le coup quand on découvre cette jolie ville espagnole.

    Plage agréable, ruelles typiques, bars à tapas, boutiques.
