Ratings and ReviewsSee All
We love improving our knowledge of other languages by talking to native speakers. But it’s not always easy to find friends fluent in German, Korean, or Icelandic. Tandem’s global community connects pre-screened learners and tutors through text and video chats, and it covers just about every spoken and written language—including Klingon, Dothraki, and Emoji. ??????!
5 Star app if glitches can be fixed. Still HIGHLY recommend!
I really want to leave more than three stars because this app is so fantastic in theory. The problem is that a lot of the time your messages are in accessible because you have to scroll up and then down and then up and then down and repeat about four or five times to actually get your messages to load. When I first downloaded the app I had gotten over 200 messages the first day and it made it really rough to talk to people and figure out who would be a good teacher and mentor and that I could help in the same way because with so many messages coming in and not being able to load more than the first 10 to 15 messages made it extremely difficult.
Right now I have my free 30 day trial for pro and so far the pro options are really great. I would give this App five stars in a heartbeat if and only if we could get a little bit smoother interface and a better flow when trying to load Messages.
This app has so much potential and you can really learn a lot there are many very helpful people I still highly recommend that you download this app and try to get to know people and talk with them about the languages you’re interested in because it’s still a very valuable app. I really haven’t had any issues with spammers or bots or Advertisements or anything like that which is great!

Could be better
Honestly looking back at what I’ve written I’d move it down to 3.5 stars.
I’ve had tandem for roughly 2 weeks. It’s a simple and fairly easy to use app. I’ve talked to multiple people online and have even tried out some of the tutors. Price wise it’s a bit expensive. If you want multiple tutors and keep the app monthly it adds up QUICK. On a smaller note I think there should be a better way that the app deals with tutors. It’s understandable that sometimes you’ll have to reschedule, but it’d be nice if there was some way to rebook or move a lesson around for both tutors and students. I’ve had to do that recently and I think my tutor is good for it, but that doesn’t mean I won’t have anxiety that I’ve just lost about $17 because my tutor just wanted my money. It’s also a bit annoying that you have to pay the full amount for just an introduction to your tutor. I get we are taking their time away from things and they do deserve to be compensated, but could their be some kind of mandatory 10min conversation either through their chat or something where you guys get a feel for each other before spending any money?
