This internship enabled me to develop my future profession skills, and provided a lot of fun at the same time.
I understood how it really is to teach someone, inspire and engage into the world of knowledge.
My work was very pleasant, and thanks to my superiors, I didn't feel any pressure at all, which only made me more creative and kept my internship experience at highest level!
If you are ready to experience similar endevours, don't think twice and go for it! :)

This site was the first result that popped up when I was searching for my internship in Spain . It began when I saw a perfect vacancy and send them an email to ask if it was available, fortunately they responded me immediately.
Unfortunately the internship was unavailable because I was a few days too late, but they offered me a great deal of other options so I had plenty of other choices.
I found another exciting internship in that assortment, so the next day after I asked them if it was open, they answered me a few minutes later to arrange a Skype call
After a pleasant and comfortable talk they put me through with the internship of my choice, with them I arranged the data for my next Skype meeting.
After that interview, everything was arranged and I got to admit that the whole process and the internship itself was one of the experiences of my life. This also ofcourse made possible by Spain Internship.
So summarized Spain Internships has helped me to find and connect with a wonderful internship in a period of 3 days after contacting them.
They were free of charge and had a pleasant and helpful service, so yes, I would recommend them if you’re looking for a placement in Spain.

I was a bit weary of this at first as their weren't any reviews out their for this company and I did not know anybody else that had done it, however, it was legitimate and I had a wonderful experience. I taught in Madrid and I absolutely enjoyed my time there. The only complaints that I have is that it gets really hot in Madrid in the summer, especially in August, so it can get somewhat uncomfortable. It may also be a bit difficult for you if you are not used to the Spanish schedule as their days are very long. Generally I went to the school at 10am and didn't leave until around 9 because of the long 3 hour siesta in the middle of the day. Other than these two things it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who has any interest in teaching or simply just wants to improve their Spanish.

What would you improve about this program?
I would increase the pay a little bit more, as it is very hard to live in Madrid on 500 euros a month.

I contacted this company to help me find internship in Spain. After i had interview, they contacted me in two days and they offered me five months internship in Sevilla. I accepted this offer and now after four months I am really happy with my internship, and I dont want to go back home anymore! Sevilla is beautiful city especially in the summer. Really friendly customer service, they also have helped me with all my questions (travelling, accommodation etc.)

Hi there! In the beginning I was not really sure about going to the south of Spain, but I have to say that I enjoyed my stay in Sevilla so much!
The hotel is nice, and staff friendly and I did not have to pay anything for the program.

What would you improve about this program?
Less working hours ( I was doing 35) would be great to enjoy a bit more the city and get know the area

Alumni Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with verified alumni.

Shaun Panton

Shaun Panton is a third year student at Binghamton University in New York. He is 20 years old, originally from New York City, and he taught English in Madrid through “Spain Internship” for about four months in the summer of 2014.

Why did you decide to go abroad with your provider?

Shaun: One day I was browsing my school’s job search portal looking for a summer internship and I came across an ad to teach abroad in Spain. I had absolutely no prior interest in teaching, however, the job description sparked my interest, and it seemed like it would be an interesting experience, so I decided to apply.

Within a week of submitting my application, Spain Internship followed up with me to set up a Skype and telephone interview. They were there for me through every step of the process and answered any questions I had.

Since I go to a fairly large university, it was somewhat difficult for me to find the right person to sign my training agreement (a document required for all interns under Spanish law) however they helped me through it all.

It was then that I decided that they were the perfect placement company for me.

Describe your most meaningful souvenir and why you love it?

Shaun: My most meaningful souvenir is a keychain of the oso y el madroño madrilleño. It is a keychain of a statue of a bear climbing a tree. It may seem pretty insignificant but this bear statue served as a meeting point for my friends and I.

Since we found the cell phone service in Spain to be fairly expensive compared to our home countries, many of us often only used our phones for emergencies or when on Wi-Fi. So whenever we wanted to meet up we would go somewhere where there was Wi-Fi and message each other through WhatsApp, a free Internet based messenger, saying “ill meet you at the oso (bear) in 15 minutes, or something along those lines.

If you do end up working or studying in the center of Madrid you will probably hear a lot of reference to the iso, or you might end up using it yourself, as it is a central meeting point for many.

Did you forget to pack something important? Did you feel as if you were missing something?

Shaun: Just a word of warning, if you use stick deodorant or solid deodorant you might want to pack a few extra sticks in your bag because it is near impossible to find in Madrid. I made the mistake of only bringing one, thinking that I could just purchase a couple sticks when I arrived.

However, much to my surprise stick deodorant is not very common there. Many people use roll on or aerosol sprays such as “AXE”. There is nothing wrong with this, but it is not what I was used to and it made me a little uncomfortable considering that the temperature in Madrid can reach upwards of 100 degrees Fahrenheit at the peak of the summer.

Do your self a favor a drop a couple of extra speed sticks in your bag before you take of for Madrid, it will save you a lot of unneeded hassle.

How has this experience impacted your future?

Shaun: My experience in Madrid definitely impacted me personally, professionally and academically. I think that Madrid is the perfect place for anyone to intern or study abroad because it has a very large international community.

I was able to network and meet people for all different parts of the world that I probably would have never met otherwise. I was also able to get a real local’s perspective of the city due to the nature of the program. I had to find everything on my own, housing, transportation, etc.

This resulted in a non-watered down, fully immersive experience. I lived in a regular flat, went grocery shopping and commuted to work everyday to work like a local. I really enjoyed the lifestyle in Spain and I am strongly considering returning there in the near future for graduate school.
