Tandem Language Exchange: Speak any language



    Tandem Language Exchange: Speak any language's review

    Published: 2016-10-21, by .

    Chatting in native tongues is hard, so Tandem connects you with real speakers

    • Spiffy, clean, and pretty UI
    • Easy to sign-up
    • Active community
    • Completely free
    • Laggy and slow
    • Have to wait until Tandem confirms your identity
    • Lengthy sign-ups

    "Talk with people from around the world"


    Tandem allows you to chat with people from around the world in real time, without having to worry about the language barrier. The app is community-basedYou’ll first have to sign in with Facebook, Google, Weibo, VKontakte, or if you don’t have any of those, your mobile phone. You’ll then choose your gender, add a profile image (make sure to add a facial shot), add your interests, and what you’re hoping to learn. After receiving a confirmation later on, you can chat with other people in the language you can to learn with your same interests, which are usually native speakers.


    Tandem’s UI looks spiffy, clean, and really, really pretty. While the entire sign-up process is lengthy, there’s no denying that it isn’t easy. There are people who speak over 120 languages. The app is also completely free, with no hidden fees.


    Once you’re done answering the lengthy profile questions, you’ll then have to wait until Tandem confirms your identity request. On both the iOS and Android, this app is laggy and slow, which makes for a real bummer.

    With 150+ languages, more than 2500 language combinations and 1M + members, there’s never been a better way to a learn a new language with native speakers.

    The learn exchange community is completely free, and is based on the Tandem learning method - a scientifically proven technique where two people meet in person to teach each other their native languages, and of course, to allow a cultural exchange that you won't find in any classroom.

    Really a great app so far, my favorite of the options available (italki, lingbe, etc.) but still needs some work. It could use an option to switch between available/unavailable to new people/unavailable to everyone. Also like many apps it shows English as only an American flag, this is a problem of course because of the differences between American (me) and British English (and maybe Irish usage and Canadian etc, or maybe just to know what country the other person identifies with). And other little bugs, but hopefully all these little things get ironed out.

    Diese App ist das wonach ich schon immer gesucht habe! Mir gefällt es sehr mich mit Menschen aus der ganzen Welt auszutauschen, Sprachnachrichten und Bilder versenden hat mir schon bei Problemen in einer Sprache geholfen. Ich habe trotzdem noch ein paar Verbesserungsvorschläge : Die Korrektur eines Textes sollte nicht erneut von der korrigierenden person gesendet werden, stattdessen sollte die Korrektur genau in der nachricht zu sehen sein, in der sie notwenig war. Das ist übersichtlicher und stört den Lesefluss nicht. Außerdem fänd ich es gut, wenn man seine eigenen Nachrichten die man verschickt hat, nochmal bearbeiten zu können um eventuelle Fehler direkt korrigieren zu können. Vielen dank!

    It would have been 5 but I don't get any notification of new messages. I have to keep on checking the app. It's inconvenient
