PROGRAMS FOR INDIVIDUAL ADULTS

Centro MundoLengua offers you a completely immersive experience in an environment and lifestyle that are typically Spanish. Our programs are multi-facetted at their core, placing as much emphasis on your discovery of Spanish culture as your increased comprehension and understanding of the Spanish language. We design customized courses for students that consistently meet our own high standards for quality, and our 24-hour responsive assistance service will allow a foreign country to become a friendly, welcoming and safe environment.

Our online registration form is available on our website http://www.centromundolengua.com. There is no deadline for registration, but get in touch with us as soon as possible once you have decided you would like to study with us. This will allow us to check all possibilities and confirm the availability of the program you are interested in. 

You should register as far in advance from the program start as possible, via our website. Bear in mind that spaces on our programs are often limited and demand is high. 

Yes. Generally speaking, a non-refundable deposit of 80 € $150 per person is required to reserve a space on one of our programs. However, the amount can change depending on the program function. Please get in touch in order to clarify the deposit value in your specific case.

You will receive an automated message that confirms we have successfully received your registration. A contact from Centro MundoLengua will be provided who can respond to any doubts or concerns you have. Right up to the beginning of your journey, we will keep you informed by email of any updates related to your program. 

Once we have received your deposit, we will send your student portal login details by email. If you do not receive them for whatever reason, click here to get your password. Remember that your username will be the email address that was used during online registration. 

First you must ensure that your passport will remain valid for the duration of your program, as well as sending us a copy of your passport along with a recent photograph of yourself. Afterwards, you must process your visa application if necessary. The next step is to search for return flights to and from Spain. Flights are not included in your program and neither will we make reservations on your behalf. When you have your full travel details and if you have chosen to stay with a host family here in Spain, you should forward your itinerary to us so that we can inform your host family of your time of arrival.

If you eventually decide not to participate in a study program you have already registered for and wish to cancel, you have three options; confirming cancellation by email, filling out our withdrawal form available on our website or cancelling via the student portal. For more information concerning refunds, please consult our legal terms and conditions.

You are able to make any change to the contracted program you like as long as you notify Centro MundoLengua of the desired changes 30 days prior to the beginning of the program at the very latest, excluding personalized programs. In this case, please get in touch.

After having paid the deposit to reserve your space on the study program, the remaining amount should be paid in full up to 6 weeks before the program start date. If you complete the online registration within 6 weeks prior to the beginning of a study program, you must complete the payment for the program in full as soon as you receive confirmation of your participation from us. All associated bank charges must be covered by yourself.

In some instances we are able to offer flexible payment plans. Please get in touch for more information about this possibility. 

No. We do not offer any scholarships or support for individuals interested in our programs for adults. 

The quickest and most convenient payment method we offer is debit/ credit card payment through our secure website. We also accept payment through PayPal, checks (made payable to Centro MundoLengua) and bank transfers. Remember that in order to confirm your participation in your study program, you must complete the deposit and pay the remaining balance at the latest 6 weeks before the start date of your program.

Generally speaking, our courses for adults only included the classes. You can choose to add extra items to your package for an additional fee, such as a homestay with a local Spanish family, a program of recreational activities and medical insurance. 

Firstly, don’t go overboard with your packing. We would advise you to bring relatively informal clothing without it appearing sloppy and neglected. That said, bear in mind that Spanish dress sense is often more formal than just a combination of flip flops, shorts and a t-shirt that is often popular with international students. What’s more, during visits to specific monuments such as places of worship, entry will be denied to individuals who fail to dress appropriately.

Create a basic plan to mix and match essential items of clothing that you can simply use to add extra layers when it gets cold during the night and in the mornings. We advise you to bring at least one smart outfit (not too formal) that you can wear if you go out in the evenings. 

  • Flight tickets.
  • Passport.
  • Cash (in euros).
  • Rucksack for excursions.
  • A wallet or purse to carry money and some form of identification while in Spain.
  • Telephone.
  • Laptop computer.
  • A bag for dirty and used clothing.
  • Comfortable day-to-day clothing and clothing for nighttime activities (don’t forget a pair of dark-coloured socks, a pair of light-coloured socks, underwear etc.).
  • Jacket or sweatshirt and clothing suitable for the cold.
  • Pyjamas and slippers (people don’t often walk around barefooted at home in Spain).
  • Bathing suit, beach towel and flip flops if your program takes place during summer.
  • Umbrella.
  • Travel socket adaptor if you are travelling from outside of Europe.
  • An elegant outfit for evening activities (it doesn’t need to be too formal).
  • Sports clothing.
  • A good pair for shoes suitable for walking.
  • Sunscreen and after-sun.
  • Personal hygiene products (toothbrush and tooth paste, dental floss, shower gel, shampoo etc…). You can purchase them in Spain, but it is a good idea to bring some travel-size personal hygiene products. 
  • An additional pair of glasses or contact lenses if you use them. You should also perhaps consider bringing a bottle of cleaning solution, as these sorts of products can often be very expensive in Spain. 
  • If you are receiving or undergoing medical treatment, let us know so that we can help you in case of urgency. Bring enough medication to last for the whole program, particularly if you require a very specific brand. If you suffer from travel sickness, bring appropriate medication as we travel by coach to our excursions. All information concerning your medical history will be treated as confidential. 
  • A couple of hand towels if you use them. Bathroom furnishings in Spain often omit them.
  • Mosquito nets are not widely used in Spain. If you are severely allergic to mosquitos, you can bring an effective insect repellent for your skin, provided that using it does not have a negative reaction on your skin.
  • Material to read during the journey.
  • A small gift for your host family can be a nice touch.
  • IMPORTANT: Include clothing for one of two days in your hand luggage just in case your luggage goes missing. All absolutely essential items should be kept within your hand luggage.

Check the standard voltage in your country and compare it to Spain. For example, American program participants will need a socket adaptor as well as a voltage converter, as the Spanish electrical system uses 220v, while the system in the USA only uses 110v.

Centro MundoLengua’s courses in Spain generally begin on Mondays and end of Fridays. It is advisable that you arrive on the Sunday prior to the beginning of the program and leave on the Saturday immediately following its conclusion.

The transfers to and from the airport are not included in our programs for adults. We advise you travel with a taxi or a private transport app (Cabify, Uber) to arrive at the city center.

There is no minimum level of Spanish for our adult programs. Get in touch with us to learn more about the possible dates for your course depending on your current level of Spanish and your age range.

Our courses for adults generally contain 5 people per class.

They are university graduates (of philology, journalism, translation and education) who are specifically trained to teach Spanish as a foreign language. They are all friendly, outgoing, very supportive and, above all, they truly care for the wellbeing of their students. All are native Spanish speakers, though the majority also speak English or another second language.

Absolutely. The classes are conducted completely in Spanish, including those for beginners. In the end, you are in Spain, and you have to adapt to your surroundings in order to get the most out of your time here. And when you make a mistake (which is a question of when, not if), take it in good humour and don’t get put off. It is critical that you keep trying to communicate in Spanish, including outside of our school. You will see how the effort of constantly pushing yourself to communicate in Spanish pays off at the end of the program.

Before beginning your program you will have to complete an online Spanish Level Test and answer a few questions about your history of studying Spanish. If you have no prior knowledge, you will be placed into a beginners’ group or in private classes.

You will work on all competencies that form part of the Spanish language; oral expression, listening comprehension, reading comprehension and written expression.

We use a very dynamic and communicative methodology. In the classes a focus is placed on student participation with activities that are designed to simulate an authentic Spanish-speaking context.

Yes. Bear in mind that apart from your classes, you will be living in Spain and constantly practicing with native speakers – even more so if you choose to live with a host family.

Once you have completed the course, you will receive an official Centro MundoLengua certificate. You must attend all classes in order to receive it; you may only miss a maximum of 10% of the planned teaching time. 

At Centro MundoLengua we try to place adults of a similar age range into our study groups. The majority of our students come from the United States of America, Germany, France, Switzerland and a few other European countries.

Yes, at our school in Seville. There we have a library facility with a book lending service. This is not the case in Cadiz.

Centro MundoLengua offers a social and cultural activity program included in the price. Activities include a tapas tour, visits to famous monuments, Spanish cinema evenings etc. 

Our activity program is created to be suitable for everybody. The entrances (to monuments etc.) needed for some activities are included, thus you will not have to spend more money. However, there may be additional activities that would require an extra fee. 

You will have Saturdays and Sundays free to enjoy the infinite cultural and entertainment possibilities that Spain has to offer.

Yes. It is not included in the price of the program, but for an additional fee you can choose to reside with one of our carefully selected host families with full-board or half-board. 

We are very lucky here at Centro MundoLengua. We work with a range of families that are specially selected by our team, and we boast a huge amount of experience when it comes to hosting students; we have being doing this consistently since 2005! Our housing director personally visits every house and interviews each family member, while also developing a dossier of the feedback of students on our programs that have already stayed with the host family on previous programs. 

Prospective new host families get in touch with the housing director for an initial interview. After this first stage, our housing director visits the property to assess the living conditions and to take photographs, as well as meeting and speaking to the entire family that resides at the property. If our quality standards are met, the family will be invited for a final interview. If both parties are satisfied at this stage, the family will sign an agreement that stipulates the host family guidelines so that the homestay is satisfactory for both students and for ourselves. The homes of our host families are visited every two years from the day of our first visit in order to ensure that our standards are continuously being met.

Furthermore, we constantly evaluate our host families and respond to the feedback that we receive from students who stay with them, removing host families from our homestay system when necessary on a case-by-case basis.

The accommodation provided by Centro MundoLengua will never be more than 15 minutes away from the school on foot. 

If your desire to change your homestay is justified, yes. Once your intention has been communicated and once we ensure that it is not just a case of misunderstanding, our housing director will look for a new host family that matches your needs. As soon as we can find one, the housing director will inform you and organize the change, together with a representative of Centro MundoLengua to assist you. You will pack your suitcase, return the house keys to the host family and move to your new homestay accompanied by a member of our team. You will not be left alone for any moment during this process. 

No. Participants in our programs for Spanish teachers will always be given an individual room in our family homestays. Other adults on your program may be staying in the same homestay as you, but you will not be sharing a bedroom. 

We can supply a list of suitable accommodation (hotels, residencies etc.) to you, but we are not able to manage the process for you or make any reservation on your behalf. The cost of accommodation will have to be covered by you. 

International calls are not a problem. As you probably know, you can use telephone applications to contact your family using a wifi connection at no extra cost. No matter what, remember not to use your phone’s data and instead connect to a local wifi network.

In case you need to make a conventional telephone call, it is advisable to do so with a prepaid card from a Spanish company. The majority offer vouchers with a series of minutes per month at a very affordable price.

The vast majority do. Homes in Spain that do not have wireless internet access are rare.

For small amounts and purchases made in small businesses, yes. In your country of origin you can exchange your local currency for Euros at a better rate than you will be able to get in Spain, even though the entity you use may take a couple days to process the exchange. Think ahead and consider how much money you will need to bring to Spain. Between 100 and 200 Euros per week is normally more than enough. In any case, the majority of goods and services can be purchased with a credit or debit card in Spain. Bear in mind that your bank may charge a commission for activity conducted abroad.

Our programs are delivered in safe cities. We have hosted many students and not once has anything truly serious happened. The cities in which we operate are tourist-friendly and the local authorities do a great job of guaranteeing a safe environment for everybody. Late in the evening when the temperatures cool during the hottest times of the year, everybody goes out into the streets to socialize, to go to the cinema, to share some food and drink with friends…. Because of this, you can always count on there being a large number of people walking around the peaceful streets until the small hours of the early morning, families with small children included. The only thing that we advise is that you take care of your belongings in areas filled with people in order to avoid theft and pickpocketing. This is not common and you shouldn’t worry, but please remain alert and vigilant. 

You will be given the number of an emergency contact from Centro MundoLengua. If there is a legitimate and immediate danger to your state of wellbeing, you can call the number 112 without charge in Spain. 

No, but you are able to purchase health insurance with us for an additional fee if you like. 

It covers hospital fees, medical treatment and transport for up to 60,000 euros per illness or injury during your program in Spain. Likewise it also covers transport, food and accommodation for up to and including 10 days for one of your relatives in case you contract an illness that puts your life at risk or in case you suffer an injury that requires hospitalization. Get in touch for more information.

Of course. In addition to the photos you and your friends take, we have an internal photographer at Centro MundoLengua that will accompany you to some of the activities. We will normally send you all images taken of your group approximately one week after the program concludes. If you have any special interest in a specific image (i.e. a photo of yourself in a certain landmark), feel free to communicate such a request to a member of the Centro MundoLengua team. 

Get in touch and we will inform you of the benefits that we reserve for our most loyal students. 

At Centro MundoLengua we work with for students who share their experiences with us with other parties who are interested in coming to Spain. If you would like to work with us to encourage more students to come study with us after you have completed your program, let us know and we will inform you of the benefits and rewards you could potentially obtain.
