Tandem Language Programme


Language exchange has never been easier. Join us for regular Language Cafés, Speed Lingua evenings and themed events throughout the Academic year or find a language partner for your very own language exchange. Meet other students and practice languages in a fun, relaxed environment without tutors, exams or lectures. All levels welcome!


Online Tandem events

The Language Café is an online space where you can meet new people, share a cup of tea and try out a new language with native speakers. All of our Language Cafés are open for all languages, so come and join the conversation! Join our Tandem Facebook Group and keep checking this page for continuous updates.

Our weekly Cafés take place on Mondays and Fridays, so come along and join our online conversation!


Monday cafés take place from 7.30pm to 8.30pm UK time. Join here: http://bit.ly/tandemcafe
