Welcome to tandemMOOC! If you are a Spanish-speaking student of English or an English-speaking student of Spanish looking to work on your speaking, then you’re in the right place! Based on research and learning theories, we’ve put together this six-week course to help you develop speaking strategies and improve your fluency.

This course helps you to:

  • practise basic communication strategies.
  • work on speaking fluently and spontaneously enough that regular interaction with native speakers isn’t a problem.
  • give and justify your opinion on topics you’re familiar with.
  • be aware of your own language learning and evaluate others’ speaking skills in your language.
