Centro MundoLengua Reviews
A memorable and invaluable experience!
Submitted by Sarah H - - | November 16, 2016
Everything was perfect! Ken Stuart was fantastic, better than all other instructors that I have worked with during my (numerous) hours spent at other workshops, classes, and PDs! He broke down the entire test, and also shared many ideas, activities, and tricks of the trade relevant to experienced as well as new AP Spanish teachers. Our guides and the cultural experiences they prepared for us were fun, informative, and unique; my only complaint being the lack of sleep caused by the worry that I might miss out on one of the adventures or experiences. I have kept in touch with the many friends I met, who are Spanish teachers from all over the world! David Hirsch was most helpful in every way and incredibly prompt in response to any question I had. THIS is the BEST APSI for AP Spanish and Culture! I will be back!
Phenomenal study abroad experiences

I am a Spanish teacher and my students and I have both participated in CentroMundoLengua's programs. My students have had positive learning experiences which push their Spanish, but are also fun cultural experiences. I took part in the AP teacher training program this year in Madrid and can now say firsthand that it is a quality program. There is an excellent balance of academic information and cultural immersion activities. I learned so much! Gracias!
AP training for teachers

This is a phenomenal program and I am hoping to complete it again in the future at a different location. I was in Madrid for two weeks and got to experience all the wonderful places I have taught my students about for the last two years. The cultural aspect of the trip was very well planned and organized. The training was and experience that has completely changed my vision when I teach, not only for the higher levels, but especially for my lower levels.
My cultural and linguistic immersion experience in Seville
Submitted by lmmedmex - Erie United States | October 21, 2016
I am a teacher who participated in the summer AP program. I did not have a program at the school where I teach. I learned so much culture and practice my Spanish skills at the program. I was totally immersed in the language and culture. The living conditions were excellent.
I learned how to set up the AP language and culture program and how to grade the test. There are The after class experiences were exceptional. It was so fun to learn to make paella, learn about the art and gain historical perspectives about the history of Spain. We attended a Flemenco dance performance and had time to explore the city with our guides who werewere unbelievably knowledgeable and friendly. I would like to do it again!

I was fortunate to receive the SWCOLT Centro Mundo Lengua grant for study in Seville Spain this past summer (2016). The first week of cultural activities was unmatched in every aspect: our guide Antonio was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the connections between culture, history, literature, art, gastronomy. The experiential aspect of this week helped me to better understand cultural connections as well as the history of the Spanish-speaking world and provided me with a renewed enthusiasm for seeking out interdisciplinary topics and fascinating essential questions as the central focus for units for my AP courses. The second week focused on deepening my understanding of the AP Spanish Language and Culture test, assessment and grading as well as unit and lesson design. Ken Stewart masterfully led us to analyze and understand the different skills measured on the exam as well as gave us a deep understanding about how the free response sections of the AP exam are graded. We had a chance to collaborate with AP Spanish teachers from around the U.S. and the world to analyze student work samples and share lesson and unit ideas. All in all, I came back revitalized and ready to take my teaching to the next level by including more fascinating topics and more rigor in my planning and assessment.
