I loved my time studying abroad with Centro Mundolengua! They are very meticulous planners and take care of every detail so that their students have a fun and stress-free time away from home (planning trips, coordinating classes, giving metro cards, checking on homestays, etc). My Spanish improved immensely from living with a host family and studying at Universidad Pablo de Olavide. I definitely plan on returning to Spain.

I participated in an individual program oriented around community service for three weeks. It was a wonderful experience-- the staff at Mundolengua are so kind and supportive. They were also willing to accommodate my busy summer schedule and unique requests, which is hard to find in a summer program. I´m happy to have worked with such a great organization, and I would definitely recommend it to any high schooler looking to go abroad individually.

I absolutely loved my experience with Centro Mundolengua's (CML) Summer Intensive program in Cadiz! I spent three weeks taking classes at the University of Cadiz, living with a host family, and improving my Spanish language fluency. I was most thankful for how amazing CML was and how it felt like being part of a family and not just as an individual study abroad student. Cadiz is the perfect place to be during the summer in Spain - you have the beach and the sun, not to mention the warm and welcoming people of Cadiz all around you. I met some amazing friends in Cadiz that summer and we are still friends today! If it wasn't for studying abroad through CML, I wouldn't have had the courage to come back to Spain for a full semester program through CML later on in my college years. And because of all my experiences, I decided to move to Spain and now live here full time! I couldn't imagine my life today without the first step of studying abroad in Cadiz back in 2013.

I spent my entire fall semester of my junior year of college studying in Sevilla, Spain with Centro MundoLengua and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The staff at MundoLengua were always available whether we needed them for assistance or any kind of emergency, or if we just wanted to hang out in the office and get to know them better. They prepared a variety of activities that ranged from cultural visits to sporting activities that allowed us to see more of the city. They truly made us feel immersed and like we were actually members of Sevilla, instead of American students solely studying there. My favorite aspect of this program was that they offered free tutoring for their students. I chose to meet with one of the program coordinators twice a week to practice my Spanish and this decision had the most profound effect on my life. Not only did it drastically improve my Spanish through one on one conversation but it also allowed me to get closer to the staff at Centro MundoLengua; so much so, that my time studying with them led to two internships in Spain and many valuable friendships.

What would you improve about this program?
No need for improvement. The program is still relatively young and just needs to time to grow and expand.

Centro Mundolengua offers a truly immersive study abroad experience, so if you are looking to live like a Spaniard for a semester - you should look no further than Mundolengua. The Centro Mundolengua staff organizes a plethora of cultural and social events to widen your perspective. Additionally, they offer free tutoring and 24/7 hour assistance. For example, one of my flights was cancelled and the staff did everything for me! Due to studying abroad with Mundolengua my Spanish has improved markedly and I never want to leave Sevilla!

Sarah A. Krendl

Job Title
Intern, Marketing Department
female overlooking city

During her semester abroad in Santiago de Chile, Sarah discovered her love for traveling and getting in touch with new cultures, people, and languages. After finishing her "Global Sales and Marketing" studies in Austria, she decided to go abroad and do a gap year.

Now, she's ended up at the language school Centro MundoLengua in the heart of Seville, enjoying eating tapas, speaking Spanish and being in touch with incredibly friendly people.

What is your favorite travel memory?

I am 22 years old and have already seen many many countries and cities in the world. One of the things I always thought is weird, but have now fallen in love with, is traveling alone. Traveling alone enables you to discover a city in a totally different way. You realize things you would not, do things you wouldn't otherwise do, and talk with people you might not have if you were traveling with somebody else.

I think one of my favorite travel memories was just two weeks ago when I went alone to Palma de Mallorca for a weekend. Since I am an outdoor sports lover, I rented a bike to just go to the coast in the south. I really missed riding a bike, I was used to it in Austria -- in Spain, I simply do not have a bike.

At the bike rental place, I got to know a super friendly man that I ended up speaking with for over an hour. In the end, he asked me if I was up for a hike the next day. You cannot imagine how happy I was! I had missed the Austrian mountains a lot, and I agreed to the hiking session.

We went on one of the most beautiful hikes ever. The weather was great, the company super friendly and the mountain and sights over the sea incredible, I will never forget that day!

Aside from that memory, I really enjoyed waking up on the Ko Phi Phi Islands in Thailand and going for a run, and going to sleep in the Atacama Desert in Chile during my semester abroad. I NEVER leave my running shoes at home when I travel.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Centro MundoLengua is a family! Even though I have always been a social and friendly person, this strength grew even more while working for this company.

All the people who are working and teaching here love their job and this is the reason why not only me, but also the students who visit our school, feel so welcomed and comfortable.

I have become even more sociable and interested in other people, and more open to cultures and languages -- I love to hear other people's stories and why they are how they are.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

One of my favorite stories is from a 65-year-old student who loves Centro MundoLengua. I like listening to her as she always tells us how much she loves the atmosphere at our school and our team. She feels welcomed as part of our family and she enjoys the individual treatment.

Moreover, we have coordinators who are responsible for organizing the free time outside of our Spanish courses -- she loves that she can totally immerse herself in the Spanish culture by eating tapas, visiting local markets and buying artisanal goods.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would choose the Spanish Immersion Program. As many other programs do, this program combines both a Spanish course and a variety of free time activities which can be individually designed.

Native speakers will teach you Spanish in a way that you can increase your writing, speaking, listening and comprehension skills. The afternoon activities include whatever your heart is searching for -- eating tapas, playing sports, visiting the most beautiful attractions, and more.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

As I have already mentioned, this company is a family, a team! You can see this team spirit in our work every day. The programs, the courses, and the activities just work because we all work together and love our job. I am proud of my team every single day, not just on certain occasions -- everyone does a great job!

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

Team spirit, honesty, and working toward the same goal. The people who work in the company should know which goals they are working toward and why. Set a goal for your company and share it with your employees -- see your company as a team and go for the goal together!
