INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Is this program for my students?
These programs typically consist of cultural activities and excursions both in Seville/Cadiz, as well as in other cities in Andalusia, or even Madrid, Barcelona, etc. Classes can be added, if desired. Housing can be with families in Seville/Cadiz for more of an immersive experience, or hotels. In other cities, we offer housing in hotels, residences, etc..
Some of the educational tours in Spain that we offer include:
- Barcelona + Madrid ("Capital Cities Tour").

What is my role in organizing this trip?
Teachers announce the trip at school, usually some time in advance. The trip may be a school sponsored trip, or a trip taken by the teacher outside of the school system. Teachers encourage students to consider the trip, and spread interest. They will normally hold an informational meeting with parents and students, to inform them about details. A Centro MundoLengua director can be on-site for the meeting, or available by Skype/phone. In terms of payments, this can be done online by each individual student (so teachers do not have to handle any money).
What exactly are my responsibilities as a chaperone during the trip?
Chaperones normally accompany the students and Centro MundoLengua guides during cultural visits, as well as any excursions. In the event that a student becomes ill, Centro MundoLengua will always accompany him/her to the doctor. The chaperone will normally come along, for added support. In general, in case of any type of issue with students, Centro MundoLengua relies on the added advice and support of chaperones before taking action.
Will I have to pay anything?
Teachers travel for free. Your costs are included in the overall package. As well, we can work with you to include your airline cost.
Will I have free time?
Absolutely. Given that our program is highly structured, you will find that you have a lot of free time to pursue outside interests, or to simply relax. Each group is assigned their own Centro MundoLengua coordinator who takes care of them. As well, there is always a program director onsite for added support. Some teachers use the time to study, investigate, get in shape, shop, catch up on summer reading, etc.
Do I need to buy flights for my group?
You are responsible for purchasing your own flights. It is very important to make sure all students have passports and secure your flights early. Spain is one of the most popular destinations worldwide. The longer you wait, the more you are going to pay for flights. That being said, we can help. We work with an agent that can book flights for groups of at least 10 individuals total (for airlines, a group needs to be at least 10). If you have less than 10 in your group, you can either ask a local travel agent, or simply book flights online. We will pick you up in the arrival airport in Spain.
What are some examples of the activities?
Do your students know how to salsa dance? How about flamenco? Do they like sports (kayak on the river, beach soccer and volleyball, running club)? Or are they more history buffs? How about a visit around the ancient city center, discovering its’ hidden gems? In addition to the morning and afternoon activities, we provide the possibility of organizing nighttime activities with the group (movie nights, group dinners, tapas nights, musical concerts, special events, etc.).
What will my students do on the weekend?
Groups will typically use the weekend to travel. We can organize any number of excursions to other cities in Spain, as well as Morocco. You will always travel with a specialized guide from Centro MundoLengua who will take care of the group and will be available 24 hours.
What are the families like?
You want your students to be immersed in the culture and language. This is the best manner! Host families in Seville and Cadiz have worked with us for many years, and are all carefully chosen and visited by our housing director. Most families live in middle-class apartments, with the usual comforts of life. Students will most likely share a room with a friend, or other student from the program. They will also most likely share a bathroom. Families make all of the meals for students, so this is an excellent opportunity to try many new home-cooked Spanish foods. We can also deal with special diets, but we need to know this in advance. Families also wash any clothes for students. Some families have children, whereas others don’t. Some have pets, and others no. Families come in all shapes and sizes. Our housing director is onsite every day, willing to help students with even the smallest of issues. Students develop close bonds with their families, and really love this aspect of the program. They also have the opportunity to practice their Spanish in a real-life setting, outside of the classroom.
What are the hotels like?
We work with centrally located hotels in all the cities. Typically, both breakfast and dinner will be included. Students will be on their own for lunch. Again, since all of our programs are custom-designed, we can also work out a plan that includes all meals.
How much free time will my students have?
One thing that students love is that this program combines the best of both worlds. They have the daily structure of their classes and/or activities, with some free time thrown in. Some students are more independent than others, and relish this time to explore the city, make friends with the locals, enjoy sports, shopping, etc. See a typical day in this section, but rest assured that they will have some free time every day for themselves.
Will my students meet other international and Spanish students?
For educational tours, we don’t combine groups. That means that your program is your own! We do, however, offer the possibility of language and sport exchanges with local Spanish schools. Students will have the opportunity to meet local teens as part of these activities.
How much supervision will my students have?
All students count on 24 hour / 7 day a week supervision from our multi-lingual staff. Their safety is our top priority. As such, all students will be required to carry a Centro MundoLengua ID card with emergency phone contacts. Their families will also have this information. They will be able to rely on an extensive network of directors, teachers, and coordinators to facilitate their stay in Spain.
