At TANDEM Escuela Internacional, we have been teaching foreign languages for companies since 1982, therefore have over 30 years of experience and success. We have helped many companies to achieve their language goals, by analysing their needs, defining their objectives, and creating comprehensive training programmes with specific steps taken for both employees and executives.

Spanish has now become the second most important language for international communication, and the Spanish language opens doors to dynamic economies on both sides of the Atlantic. The Spanish language is therefore a highly important economic resource.

For directors who need to be prepared to establish relations with Spanish-speaking clients, for managers who need to give presentations and negotiate in Spanish, and also for expatriates and their families.

Madrid represents a unique starting point for business; it plays host to a strong business network, various state institutions, and the headquarters of numerous banks, companies, and organisations. It also represents an ideal bridge with Latin America, whilst at the same time being linked with Portugal and North Africa.
