Additional information
Positive aspects of school
The activities are thoughtfully designed to show you the best that San Sebastian has to offer. The staff is passionate about languages but also the city as a whole. The whole programme is well organised and I very much felt like a member of their family.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Going on the walking tour is a great way to get your bearings. The cooking class was fantastic and good value for money.
Other comments
I honestly think attending schools like Tandem is the best way to learn a language. It's fully immersive, sociable, in a beautiful location and the teaching is of a high quality.
