Tandem Service

Inter-linguistic exchange with Italians

The Torre di Babele Italian language school is associated with the 'Tandem International' network of international language schools. Tandem is a method which permits the expansion and development of language skills through inter-linguistic exchange.

A Tandem is composed of two native speakers of different languages (Italian and another language) who are highly motivated to meet on a regular basis to improve their knowledge of the second language through an exchange of conversation in the two languages.
These meetings, in addition to providing the chance to practice what has been learned in class, are an opportunity to become better acquainted with Italian culture through personal contact.
The Tandem service puts partners with reciprocal language interests in contact with each other. This service is offered free of charge and can be requested through the school office, at the beginning of your Italian language course.
