Launched in Edinburgh in 2007, Tandem is a popular language exchange programme run by EUSA. All students are welcome! Tandem is designed to help you meet people and learn languages in a fun, relaxed, social environment without tutors, exams or lectures.
Get involved today!
There are several different ways to participate in Tandem. Whether it’s online or in person, the possibilities are endless!
Meet your language partner at one of EUSA’s famous Speed Lingua events! Held throughout the semester, Speed Lingua is a new take on traditional speed-dating. It is a sociable way to meet new people from all over the world (no romance required!).

This is each Saturday at 3pm to 5pm during term time in the New Amphion in Teviot. Check out the global calendar for details.
