Overall Experience
-Cultural Immersion -Getting outside your comfort zone, and meeting different peopl -Absolutely worth it, and unforgettable experience - Rutgers University - New Brunswick View Entire Review
I learned that outside of your comfort zone is one of the places where you can learn the most. It was so worthwhile! - Northwestern University View Entire Review
- Williams College View Entire Review
Definitely worth it. You can not learn how to do things better if you don't get out of your comfort zone. Leaving your home country to do a professional experience allows you to compare and learn what you could do better and what you should keep on doing. - Universidad de los Andes View Entire Review

The Intern Latin America program was wonderful. My paired internship prepared me for real engineering field work, the local hosts helped me integrate smoothly into the incredible culture and local lifestyle, and I made lifelong friends through the other interns in my program and my coworkers. - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with The Intern Group: Colombia, Emerging Markets Internship Placement Program
The most important thing I learn during this internship is that despite working in a team environment you are still expected to complete task all on your own majority of the time. The main difference that I notice doing this internship and doing in one in my country is the amount of freedom you have when you work. Your superv... - University of Western Sydney View Entire Review

It help me gain a sense of what I want to do as a career in the future and also it really helped shape my Spanish speaking skills. It was extremely worthwhile. - American University View Entire Review
I got to practice the language a lot, got so much better at it which is mostly what I was looking for. The people are the most amazing I've ever encountered in any country, so warm and welcoming. - Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore / Unicatt View Entire Review
Aside from a new language, I experienced a completely new culture to what I was used to. I learned the warmth and friendliness of the local people and gained countless new friends and contacts. The work found for me was challenging yet incredibly rewarding. Was it worthwhile? Yes, two years on and I'm back hoping to stay for l... - Swansea University View Entire Review
Past Review Happiness
I realized how important it is to never stay in my comfort zone. Happiness can be anywhere and therefore I should never settle. Living abroad, traveling and doing what I love makes me very satisfied with my life and Colombia has been part of my path of happiness! - New York University View Entire Review
I gained a good amount of experience in my chosen field of study, and learned a new kind of analysis and research. My Spanish language ability also improved a lot as I worked almost exclusively with Spanish teachers. - Washington State University View Entire Review
I grew alot in my time there. Colombia is a very special country for me. The culture is so rich and diverse that I feel I have only scratched the surface after 2 months. The most valuable thing I gained from this experience was confidence that I can go abroad and survive on my own and immerse myself into a new culture. The va... - Bournemouth University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile! In addition to the practical advantage of learning a new language, I gained significant confidence and personal skills from immersing myself in a new culture. I have also gained valuable professional experience and made friends for life from all over the world. - University of Warwick View Entire Review
Past Review Chevere.
A new language, a different view on Colombia, experience working in a different culture, a chance to travel. Very worthwhile. - University of Manchester View Entire Review
To conclude, I would absolutely recommend the Intern Latin America program. Aside from the issue with the accommodation, it was a fantastic experience and any keen linguist should seriously consider it as an option to improving their written and spoken Spanish. - Durham University View Entire Review
