Where To Find Your Language Exchange in Barcelona! | Beroomers Blog
During your stay in Barcelona, there are a few things you MUST do to make the most out of your experience. And one of them is to learn as much Spanish as possible! Language exchanges (or tandems) are just perfect for this and come in a variety of shapes in sizes 😉
Events Or Meetups in Barcelona
One of the nicest ways of doing a language exchange in the city is to get together in large groups, where people from different nationalities are present:
- Informal groups on Meetup.com: check out the group Barcelona Languages & Friends, which organizes regular language exchanges and social events. This group is specially active…but there are many other meetups that are interesting too!
- Search for Facebook Groups: simply type “Language Exchange in Barcelona”, “Intercambio de Idiomas en Barcelona” or “Tandem Barcelona” and you’ll find so many groups it will be difficult to choose only one of them! (Quick note: check if the group is still active or not before joining in the conversation).

Find A Language Exchange Partner
If you rather put all your efforts in learning the language, perhaps the best option is to find your perfect language exchange partner. Internet gives you a helping hand again! Have a look at the following websites (just to name a few):
Another option is to walk around your neighbourhood and check out if the bars nearby organize activities of tandem in Barcelona. This is quite typical in Spanish Erasmus cities: sit down, order a cold beer and talk for as long as you want!

The good thing about trying to get a new language partner is that there are so many people in your same situation that the match is pretty easy;)
Join Activities At Your University
The International Relations Office at your university will quite likely organize different activities (including language exchange, of course) amongst incoming students. It’s an easy way of getting to know new people, with the advantage that they belong to your same university, which makes it easier to hang around.
