What is MundoHispano
and who's in here?
MundoHispano is a MOO
that in 1994 was founded and developed by Lonnie
Chu (aka "Colega") and Mike Mudge (aka "Kipp," currently designing
and building the world's lightest RC airplanes).
Most importantly, however, MundoHispano is a community of native
speakers of Spanish from around the world, teachers and learners of Spanish,
and computer programmers, all of whom have volunteered their time and talent
to make this a dynamic virtual world.
Containing thousands of rooms representing
over a dozen countries, all of them written by the native speakers logging
on from those countries, MundoHispano provides nearly limitless contexts
in which the language learner can communicate for authentic purposes, learn
about the many Spanish cultures, and create a home of their own in cyberspace's
oldest Spanish MOO.
And just where do these people connect
Many of MundoHispano's residents, natives
of cities in Spain,
Mexico, Ecuador, and Peru have
built portions of their favorite places. Others who have visited have connected
from Panama, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom,
the United States and many more.
