MundoLengua organizes Spanish language and culture immersion programs in Seville and Cadiz, Spain, with an emphasis on middle and high school students. We offer reduced classes (8 to 12 students) with young, native professors. Classes follow a communicative approach and focus on encouraging students to actively use the language in real-life situations. Students can expect to significantly improve their Spanish communication skills with the program. Students also study Spanish culture and lifestyles which often includes on-site field trips led by professors into the streets and markets, or out to local exhibitions of art, music, and literary readings.
In the afternoon, students have the opportunity to participate in cultural/social/sports activities with other international students. These activities might include: flamenco/salsa lessons, cooking classes, film festivals, visits to monuments, conversational exchanges with Spanish students, invited guest speakers, special interest clubs (running, yoga, belly dance), dinners, night beach parties, beach soccer, etc. On weekends, we organize trips to other cities in the south of Spain, allowing students to see the most important areas of southern Spain and to travel.
Students live in carefully selected Spanish host families where they enjoy full room and board and weekly laundry service. We interview family members and inspect each home before placing students. Each student is also able to count on the daily support of our housing coordinator to resolve any doubts.
In addition to the general program offered in both Seville and Cadiz, MundoLengua offers a unique AP prep Spanish Language and Literature course for those students who are interested in attaining advance preparation for the AP course and exam. All professors are College Board trained. The AP program takes place in June and July in Seville.
Seville offers itself as the ideal city for students who seek the cultural and recreational offerings of a larger city, without the feel of being in an impersonal and overly spread-out city. Seville is also one of Spain´s most important and beautiful cities. Cadiz, the oldest city in western Europe, is an authentic and relaxed Spanish city by the sea, offering itself as the perfect destination for students wishing to combine a vacation experience with the learning of the Spanish language.
