From my internship I learned that I can adjust to an industry I did not know much about. I learned that going abroad is the best way to learn a new language and understanding different cultures. Being in Europe makes it easier to travel to different European countries and become more cultured about older history. - California State University - Long Beach View Entire Review
I learned a great deal about the Spanish culture, the history of the cities I visited as well as Madrid. My internship also taught me a great deal about the international financial and stock market. I bettered my navigating skills for big cities as well as invaluable Spanish language sklls that I will contiune to work on upon re... - Mercyhurst College View Entire Review
Living in a country where you must communicate in a non-native language is HARD and brings you out of your comfort zone, in a good way. I had to overcome the embarrassment of not knowing how to explain myself perfectly and deal with some cultural differences that I had never experienced before. I feel like I learned so much abou... - University of Notre Dame View Entire Review

I am finishing my Bachelors in Nursing, with a Spanish minor, so I was looking for a unique internship in a hospital setting.

I had an amazing experience, learning not only a lot of the language, but also about teaching and communicating with kids. It was worthwhile. - Boston College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I opened up myself. - University of Houston View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, I was able to reflect on who I am and what I want without any familial influence, which is a really important thing for young people to do - in my opinion at least. - MiraCosta College View Entire Review

November 26, 2017 Time Of My Life
I gained a much better understanding of the cultural lifestyle. I got a firsthand perspective of how the locals treat each other, how they get around, the food they eat, etc. I have zero complaints about my time here and I would absolutely do it all over again. - Florida International University View Entire Review
May 01, 2017 Great Experience
Loved this experience! Going abroad is something that is on everyone's bucket list, so why not learn something while you're at it? Adelante does a fantastic job providing a great experience abroad along with a great internship. The Spanish class that came with my program was a surprise but definitely my favorite part. The intern... - Northeastern University View Entire Review

I learned a lot of clinical techniques that were different in Spain than the United States. I was able to learn more of the anatomy in Spanish as well which is valuable knowledge to have. - Mercyhurst University View Entire Review
I have learnt a lot from my placement, such an amazing experience. Exactly what I wanted and what I expected: to be exposed to a private clinical setting, covering a range of problems starting from family crises finishing with schizophrenia. The doctor himself and his crew were very supportive and friendly, which I think is quit... - University College London / UCL View Entire Review
The Spanish Academy, Eureka, was amazing and we learned a lot of vocabulary and grammar. My practicas/practical was in a geriatric residence and I was able to interact with the patients there by helping them with their daily physical exercise routine, mental games, and mealtime. Although it was only 4 hours a day, I enjoyed bein... - Northeastern University View Entire Review
