In today’s blog, we are going to delve into the benefits of tandem language learning and list some of the best places to do language exchange in Valencia. Whether you are an international student or a local person who is into languages, keep on reading!

What is tandem language learning?

It is a language learning method based on language exchange between two or more tandem partners. Participants meet face-to-face and have an informal conversation in the native language of one of them. After some minutes, they switch to the second participant’s language, so both make the most of their talk.

This method enhances productive skills, as participants work in listening and speaking more intensively than they do in the classroom. Apart from practicing the language, they tap into the benefits of a full cultural exchange, where they get to know the customs and traditions of the language’s associated culture.

Many language schools and bars organize events where international students meet locals to practice their respective languages.

Benefits of tandem language learning

This kind of exchange entails clear benefits for its participants. The most obvious one is that it improves your language skills. Language learning is all about practice, and the more people you are able to talk to in that language, the more you’ll practice.

However, there are some other benefits aside from learning. By participating in language exchange events, you’ll meet people from all over the world and, who knows, maybe make new friends who will help you understand the culture and customs associated to a certain language.

Jamón Session

If you’re an Erasmus student in Valencia, this is your place. Most participants come here to speak English and Spanish, but you can always find someone who wants to practice an additional language.

Tapachat

Café Berlín offers you the opportunity of meeting people from other countries and learn Spanish in Valencia, as well as English, German, Italian… and as many other languages as attendants pop by! Every Monday, starting 8 pm, you can get an exchange + drink ticket or a ticket that includes some food as well.

Flag Tandem Party

If you’re a party lover, here is the perfect event for you. At the entrance, the staff will give you the flag of your native language so participants can identify you and start a conversation. After the tandem is over (at 1 am), you can stay in the club and join the regular party with a special price on your drinks. Remember that you need to sign up in advance to attend.

We hope you find tandem events a new exciting way of improving your language skills. Never stop learning!
