Centro MundoLengua offers you a completely immersive experience in an environment and lifestyle that are typically Spanish. Our programs are multi-faceted 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 custom adult study abroad programs in Spain that consistently meet our own high standards for quality. 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. There is no deadline for registration, but get in touch with us as soon as possible once you have decided you would like to learn Spanish with us. This will allow us to check all possibilities and confirm the availability of the Spanish course you are interested in.
You should register as far in advance from the program start as possible. Bear in mind that spaces in our adult study abroad programs are often limited and demand is high.
Yes. Generally speaking, a deposit corresponding to 20% of the total program price is required to reserve a space for one of our adult study abroad programs in Spain. However, the amount can change depending on the program. 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 reset 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 (and in some cases up to 6 months after the scheduled departure date for your program). You will also need to send 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 the adult study abroad 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 45 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 for your adult study abroad program in Spain, the remaining amount should be paid in full at least 8 weeks before the program start date. If you complete the online registration less than 8 weeks prior to the beginning of your study abroad 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 you.
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 our adult study abroad prograns.
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 adult study abroad program, you must complete the deposit and pay the remaining balance at the latest 8 weeks before the start date of your program.
Generally speaking, our adult study abroad programs in Spain only include 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 somewhat formal. 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.
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 adult study abroad programs in Spain generally begin on Mondays and end on 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 adult study abroad programs. We advise you to 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 study abroad 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 Spanish courses for adults generally contain a maximum of 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 adult study abroad program in Spain, 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 Spanish 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 Sevilla. 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 (this is an extra). Activities can include a tapas tour, visits to famous monuments, Spanish cooking classes, flamenco shows, etc.
Our activity program is created to be suitable for everybody.
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 carefully-selected Spanish host families, and we have considerable 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 that have already stayed with the host family on previous programs.
Prospective new Spanish 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 Centro MundoLengua.
The homes of our Spanish 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 Spanish 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. For more information about the selection process, visit our family homestay section.
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 adult study abroad programs will always be given an individual room in our family homestays. Other adults in 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.) for 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 or friends 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.
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 perhaps 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 adult study abroad 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 early hours of the 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 the other participants take, we have a 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.
If you would like to work with us to encourage more students to come study with us after you have completed your adult study abroad program, let us know and we will inform you of the benefits and rewards you could potentially obtain.
