Review

This was a great experience for me. Adelante made things fairly straightforward when it came to applying to the program and getting set up with an internship in Madrid. The staff at Eureka Academia de Español was also wonderful and helped a lot in my time abroad. I thought the language classes there were extremely helpful. There was a learning curve with the internship, both for me and my employer, because they had never had an intern before. So, it took a few weeks to really figure out my role in the company. But, in about a month, I really felt like I was fitting in at Amapola Biocosmetics and was contributing to the company. My Spanish improved a ton in the 5 months I was there. I loved that there was always something to do in Madrid. There was always a new museum, bar, restaurant, cafe, club, or street to see. I met good friends in and out of the program. I loved my little apartment, which was right in the center of the city, so it made it easy to get everywhere. And I was able to travel around Spain as well on the weekends. I even made it to Morocco one weekend! A wonderful opportunity, and one that I will not forget anytime soon. I was lucky that I was able to complete my program before Coronavirus shut everything down!
