Dates refer to the expected arrival and departure dates.
Do you organize pick-ups at the airport?
Round-trip transport from the airport/train station/bus station is not included. We are happy to help arrange transport, or to provide advice on the best manner in which to reach the city.
Where will the classes take place?
Classes take place just off of the Paseo del Prado, in the Justicia neighborhood. The Colon metro stop is less than 5 minutes away. Salamanca, Malasana, and Chueca are all walking distance. The exact address is Barbara de Braganza 11.
Who are the instructors?
Maritza Sloan will be the instructor for the Madrid workshop.
How will the classes work?
The actual classes will not start until Monday of the second week. The first few days after arrival will be to visit the city and several sites of cultural interest. Classes will run from Monday until Friday of the second week, 6 hours per day, for a total of 30 hours.
Are College Board materials included?
College Board materials are included, as well as special materials developed by Centro MundoLengua´s professors for our student AP prep program.
Will I receive a certificate?
All participants will receive a College Board certificate upon completion of the program for the total number of AP contact hours (30 total).
How does the credit process work?
We have an agreement with the University of California at Riverside. On the first day of class, we will hand out to all participants a form. The fee for these 5.0 quarter units of credit (3 semester hours) has typically hovered around $325-$350 total. Payment can be made by credit card (Visa or MC). There will be some additional work required if you are opting for the credits and the instructors will let you know what is expected.
What about cultural activities?
We will review this program on arrival, but expect to delve into the history of Spain and take back ideas for your students. This is one of the nicest additions to the program and something that cannot be gleaned from sitting in a classroom in the states or abroad doing a similar program. All entrances are included, so there is no need to budget extra money for this. For teachers travelling with spouses, etc., it might be possible for them to join us on certain activities. We will let you know in advance, in addition to any related cost.
How will the cultural activities work?
During the first week, we will organize a series of cultural and social visits for teachers. These will be offered during the morning and afternoon/night. No AP classes will be offered during the first week. During the second week, we will offer a combination of morning AP classes and afternoon/night cultural and social visits. Teachers may opt to only follow the second week with classes and activities.
What will I do during the weekend?
The weekend is free for you to plan travel on your own. This is an excellent opportunity to visit Andalusia, southern Portugal or even Lisboa, Morocco, Barcelona, Valencia, etc. The possibilities are endless, as the cities where our programs take place are well connected.
What about housing?
We can help with finding economical hotels/hostals/residences located close to the school. As well, there are plenty of private and shared apartments. Please let us know if you need help.
Can I come with my students?
We do offer programs for both groups and individual students (in case you do not want to travel with a group, but simply want to recommend the program). The two levels being offered for students during the teacher AP dates are AP prep Spanish Language and Intermediate Spanish Language and Culture (in Seville). Students will enjoy morning classes, afternoon/night cultural/social/sports activities, weekend travel to Cadiz and Tavira (Portugal), and family homestays with all meals included. It is also possible to organize group trips outside of these dates. Contact us to custom-design your program.
