6 Month Accounting Internship

9/10

Montevideo is an awesome city and Uruguay as a whole is a wonderful destination. Their culture is beautiful and I fell in love with all of the street art. However I felt 6 months was way too long of a time period. The city is small-ish and after two months I felt I had seen all there was to see. There are many beach towns up the coast that I would highly recommend traveling to. That being said Uruguay outside of their summer months is very bleak. My housing arrangements were with a family that I became very close with and felt like my own. For my internship I was given a lot of busy work. Things I felt to keep me occupied but didn't help or effect the company at all. I used my time there mostly to practice my speaking skills. My internship was my least favorite part of my trip.

Response from Adelante Abroad

Hola Madi B! We loved having you, loved receiving your updates and are still posting and using your fabulous photos. I sure wish we would have known that you were not happy in the Accounting placement! If we had known, we could have intervened to help secure more advanced duties for you, or moved you, if needed. (We did receive a VERY positive report from your Supervisor, Fabian, at the end of your internship: the language level was an issue at the beginning, but the overall Eval was rock solid) Good luck in all future endeavors, and should Adelante be able to assist with any job search or reference request, we will gladly do so.

2 Months in Montevideo

9/10

Uruguay is a place like no other. I may have come here at the wrong time of year (it's winter), but if I hadn't I wouldn't have been able to work at a place that really enjoy.

I'm a college student, and most internships that are out there for people at this level just have you shredding papers and getting coffee. At International House I got the polar opposite. They had me observing classes, working with teachers, running workshops, and substitute teaching. I actually have teaching experience now, which is amazing and surprising from an unpaid internship. It helped that I'm a native English speaker, but they actually had me working and were using my abilities and asking for how I felt about the classes and what my feedback was about them. I actually felt like a valued member of the school. How often can you say that you feel valued at an internship?

Overall, it's been a great experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Three Months in Montevideo

10/10

My favorite part about my stay in Montevideo was perhaps my housing situation. I had the chance to live with and become close with people from Brasil, Germany, Denmark, the UK and Canada. And being connected to the Spanish school offered the opportunity to make even more international friends.

Favorite parts about the city:
6. Old VW Bugs
5. Street corner fruit stands - Drink in those colors!
4. Our neighborhood fería (weekend market)
3. The independent cinema network
2. Finding truth in the idiom "A city with the soul of a town"
1. The Rambla - there's city, city, and more city, and then there's the Rambla where the city meets the river (sea) where you can find a place to breathe / change your perspective

Favorite adventure: Visiting the Karumbé field station in Coronilla for the final days of their Spring session, and then making our way to Cabo Polonia (two busses, one hitch-hiked ride, and at least 10 miles of walking later... totally worth it).
