Tandem Santiago® Housing Options

Tandem Santiago® Housing Options

Practice your Spanish by sharing an apartment with Chileans. Students share the kitchen, bathroom, and other common areas with the apartment owner. We recommend this option to students who want to be in contact with the locals, but also want some independence when it comes to cooking and eating whenever they like.

Private Housing ÔÇô Shared Apartment

Practice your Spanish by sharing an apartment with Chileans. Students share the kitchen, bathroom, and other common areas with the apartment owner. We recommend this option to students who want to be in contact with the locals, but also want some independence when it comes to cooking and eating whenever they like.

Private Housing ÔÇô Families

Eat breakfast and dinner with your hosts, an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the language by living and practicing Spanish. We recommend this second option to those students that do not wish to cook for themselves. Private Housing includes breakfast or half board. The students eat with the host family (often itÔÇÖs just one person) and this letÔÇÖs them experience firsthand how ChileanÔÇÖs actually live, while practicing their Spanish at the same time.

We also offer: Boutique Hostel, Boutique Hotel***, Mini-Apartments, and small furnished studio apartments. All housing options include the airport shuttle to the booked lodging.
