Madrid Internship

Wonderful experience although I was a bit scared at first I had an amazing experience especially being in the center of Madrid there were tons of events I attended and all were very close. The metro was really easy and convenient to use as they had stations everywhere. I loved that the program was so independent so I got to do whatever I wanted it was just like here are your keys and these are the dates and addresses for your program. I think this independence made me grow as a person and I had a lot of fun while learning valuable skills for my resume.

Law Internship with Adelante

My experience was unique because when I first got to Madrid I was still uncertain about how I felt about a law career. I was scared and unsure about how who I wanted to be as a professional. "Was Law really my calling?" I thought. However, I took everything with a grain of salt and decided to get the best out of my experience regardless. When I first Fernando Fanego, the attorney I was interning, I felt a connection to him. He had an attitude and a mentality that I admired as a businessman and a professional. Working alongside him was impressive, he had so many connections with people all around Madrid and I respected the fact that he took me in as his ward everywhere he went. He introduced me to countless of people and gave me an incredible experience, one that I will never forget.

Pros
  • New Experience
  • Practice New Language
  • Gain experience of life in another country
Cons
  • Missing home
  • Not confident in new language yet
  • Travel to internship

Pretty good

Very lovey experience. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the exact internship I asked for (legal). However, I still enjoyed my internship (charity office work). I met quite a lot of new people and had a lot of fun with them. I was really worried before arriving there, but I found a page on Facebook which connected everyone on the Adelante programme. The staff in Madrid were super friendly and helpful. However, in the housing no one had air conditioning, just fans - horrible during the heatwave

Pros
  • Confidence builder
  • Skills learning
  • New friendships
Cons
  • Not the best housing ever, but it was ok
  • May not get the exact internship you ask for - not even plan B or C

Living in Madrid

I came to live in Madrid for 3 months. I did an internship that involved teaching Spanish children English, which was very rewarding as I knew that what I was doing was benefitting these children. I have made friends with people from around the world, greatly improved my Spanish and have seen so many amazing things in Spain. During my time in Spain, I also travelled to different cities such as Segovia, Barcelona and Toledo. I highly recommend visiting other cities during your time in Spain. Living in Spain has given me invaluable life skills as I was living on my own for the first time, meaning I had to cook, clean and food-shop for myself. Coming to live in Spain for 3 months was the best decision I have ever made, and it has been an unforgettable life experience!

Pros
  • Living in and experiencing a new culture
  • Making new friends from around the world
  • I have greatly improved my Spanish
Cons
  • It has to end!

Amazing Two Months in Madrid!

My time abroad was such a great experience! I was really happy with my psychology internship placement where I learned a lot! I was able to work with some of the top Psychiatrists and Psychologists in Madrid. With my placement, I was also able to travel to a lot of other places in Europe. My housing placement was perfect as it was right in the center of Madrid. The lifestyle and nightlife in Madrid were super fun, I could not recommend and city and country to study abroad more! I only wish I was able to spend more time abroad, everything was perfect!

Pros
  • Housing Placement
  • Internship Placement
  • Lifestyle

Amazing opportunity!

This was the best experience in the entire world! The staff at adelante and the staff here in Madrid have been so amazing throughout my entire 6 months in Spain. Adelante had stayed in touch and continually checked in on how I was doing. And the best part, the help from the connections in Madrid have been what has made this experience so amazing. From the language school to the AMAZING internship placement, I could not say any bigger thanks to Angel and everyone else here in Madrid.I am very thankful for this opportunity and think that everyone who is considering it should go for it!

Incredible Program!

Adelante provided me an incredible experience. This past summer I went to Madrid for the months June and July. It was my first time in Europe so naturally I was nervous, but the staff helped with all my questions and concerns. I had a ride when I got to the airport. They set me up with a beautiful apartment was in the city with a view and right next to the metro station. I absolutely loved the Spanish Class at Eureka. Ángel is literally and angel! He helped me so much and made my transition to Madrid to smooth! I learned so much from my internship and I got to meet so many amazing people from all over the world. Highly recommend!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone! When visiting a new country, immerse yourself into the culture! Try the foods, learn the history, go site seeing, and learn the language!

didn't want to leave

This experience proves that even if you are an experienced professional, there is ALWAYS something new you can learn in life. My thanks to IberEnglish, my manager was incredible, their environment is wonderful, I felt comfortable, supported and safe there. Help was always there for me, both by Adelante and Eureka, whenever I needed it. The people in Spain are so warm, so kind and so generous. Truly, I know for a fact that I can be very happy living in Madrid, which is why I would love to come back. I need to work o my Spanish! Overall, a wonderful experience, especially with so much uncertainty due to COVID, going to Spain was the best decision I ever made.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
For me, the most surprising thing I did was horse back riding in the mountains of Madrid!! I am not an experienced rider, but due to the fantastic host of the horse ranch, I got to experience riding a horse in the mountains! The views were exceptional!
