Hi! My name is Claire Flynn and I’m a Junior at the College of William and Mary majoring in Hispanic Studies. I’m incredibly excited to be studying abroad this semester in Seville, Spain with Centro Mundolengua! So far, my time abroad has been incredible and it’s been a truly amazing opportunity to be immersed in both the Spanish language and culture. Around Sevilla I can be found jogging through Parque de Maria Luisa, volunteering with Federación del Deporte Adaptado, and seeking out dessert at all hours of the day. I can’t wait to share my adventures abroad and please let me know if you have any questions!

“Muere lentamente quien no arreisga el cierto por el incierto.” (Dies slowly he who does not risk certainly for uncertainty). I packed my bags as a college freshman for my first major international trip to Cadiz organized by Centro MundoLengua program and haven’t stopped exploring since. I have studied abroad with Centro MundoLengua for a total of two years, completing half of my Economics and Spanish majors in Sevilla, Spain. While in Spain I met some of my best friends, acquired a distinguished palate for tapas, and traveled from Barcelona to Budapest - and everywhere in between. My experiences in Spain have formed a large part of who I am and I hope to use what I learned there to pursue a career in International Finance. If you have any questions, especially about Centro Mundolengua’s integration programs, I would love to answer them for you!

Francie Sentilles

Hi! I'm Francie Sentilles, a senior at Hutchison, a high school in Memphis, Tennessee. I spent a month with Centro Mundolengua during the summer. Taking their Pre-AP Spanish Literature Course helped me get excited about taking the full year course in the fall - something I never though would be possible. I also spent two weeks completing the Community Service Program at a nonprofit called Pulseras Rosas, which helped me see a different side of Spanish culture and improve my language proficiency through experience. I absolutely loved every minute of my trip and cannot wait to come back, hopefully to study abroad in college. Until then, contact me if you have any questions about doing the Centro Mundolengua program as a high school student.

Julien Seiler

Salut ! Je m'appelle Julien, j'ai 21 ans et je suis étudiant en deuxième année à la faculté de traduction et d'interprétation de l'Université de Genève, en Suisse. L'apprentissage des langues m'a toujours passionné, et c'est pourquoi en juin 2014, j'ai décidé de partir six semaines à Cadix afin d'améliorer mon niveau d'espagnol avec Centro MundoLengua. Ce que j'en ai retiré ? Une expérience hors du commun, des rencontres marquantes, une famille d'accueil des plus incroyables, des amitiés qui dépassent les frontières, mais surtout des souvenirs inoubliables, ainsi qu'un goût pour les voyages démultiplié. Si j'ai envie de retenter l'expérience ? Bien sûr que oui... et sans hésiter une seule seconde ! Comme disait Saint Augustin : « Le monde est un livre et ceux qui ne voyagent pas ne lisent qu'une page. » Alors vous aussi, tentez l'expérience, et vous ne le regretterez pas ! Si vous avez besoin d'aide, n'hésitez pas à me contacter, je serais ravi de répondre à vos questions !

Molly Johnson

Hola! My name is Molly and study Spanish, Sociology, and Leadership studies at Christopher Newport University. I want to be a language teacher after graduation and actually got the opportunity to volunteer in an english classroom in Sevilla thanks to CML. Not only did my semester abroad greatly improve my spanish speaking skills, but also my confidence in it. At the very beginning I was nervous talking to people, and by the time I was getting ready to go home I was 100% comfortable talking to anyone about anything. It's also a great opportunity for the avid traveler looking to get a whole lot of traveling under their belt! Let me know if you have any questions, i'd be more than happy to help!
