What were you doing in 1999? That is when Adelante Abroad sent its first candidate to Madrid, Spain, to do an International Internship Program there. She participated in a 6 month program, in a graphic design internship with a mid-sized company and lived, at first, on her own in a great little downtown apartment. By the following month we sent over two more candidates and have never looked back.
Internship, Semester & Summer Study, Teach and Volunteer Abroad programs define our menu of offerings and expertise now. Yes, you have your own room in a central, shared apartment, but meals are typically not included because we want you to grocery shop in your new country. Yes, we have staff on site full time but do they call you every day to check in? Nope. They are there if you need them but are trained to give you space to bump into things, make mistakes and finally find, on your own, how you fit in to your new country & home.
Best Summer Program06/28/2015How could this program be improved?
-I would change communication between instructors and having a schedule prior to the visit of all the participants.
-I would also change the nutrition of the program. I would have to pay extra to add protein to my meals because it was seldom an option for the program students.

I would make sure that the rules are more clear. There were no major issues but there was some confusion on some things but were resolved no problem.
Scottish Adventure06/19/2015How could this program be improved?
The wifi is not the best all the time, but you are able to do what you need to do. Honestly, any problems that you had allowed you to work it out with some of the other people on the trip and I think that brought us closer together.
