Student Life/Housing


While in Cadiz, students live with carefully selected Spanish families whose homes are within walking distance of the classes and the stunning beaches. Mundo Lengua staff frequently visit each home to do a full inspection and to speak with the members of the family to ensure that all of our students continue to have comfortable quarters and warm and enthusiastic hosts. 
Family homestays provide students with invaluable insight into the Spanish culture and daily life—the true “immersion experience.” Without a doubt, living with a Spanish family is the best way for students to advance their communication skills and one of the most beloved parts of this program.
