“My classes are wonderful and I’m especially enjoying the field trips that some offer. Two weekends ago, I went to the Eco-Reservation Durika for my environmental science class. I considered it to be the best part of my trip so far! My host family is very accommodating and I’m learning much about the culture through them. I am excited to see where the next month of my trip takes me…”

Study Abroad Update: Cheyenne C. (Study Abroad in Costa Rica)
“What is not to enjoy about my trip so far? This program has given me so many opportunities to explore so much and to experience things I never thought I would ever try. So far, during the weeks I typically see what’s to do around my neighborhood in San Pedro or explore the other charming neighborhoods of San José. On the weekends I have planned trips to the coasts with other international students, or have participated in the spectacular program excursions put on by Veritas. Last weekend I ventured off to Manual Antonio National Park on an individual mission to relax, go hiking, peruse the incredible beaches, and unwind in a beautiful hilltop hostel overlooking the Pacific. This weekend I plan on traveling to Puerto Viejo for the annual organic chocolate festival on the coast with my housemates and other students attending Veritas. I hope to take many photos at this event, and hopefully I will be able to see the sloth sanctuary not too far away from town.”

Intern Update: Emma P. (Intern in Barcelona | Teaching English)
“I’ve had a chance to familiarize myself with Gracia quite well, and some parts near Plaça Catalunya but I still feel like there is a lot I haven’t seen nor done. I am eager to explore some more now that I’ve gotten through many logistical things. So far I’ve visited Casa Battló, had dinner in Villa Olimpica by the beach, and discovered a park with gorgeous views of the city. Yesterday was incredible of course to witness all the Catalan festivities. I can safely say that I love Barcelona more and more everyday.
My roommates have been very helpful and I am so grateful to Adelante for connecting me with such friendly people -both through my housing arrangements as well as at Kingsbrook language school. The teachers are very enthusiastic and helpful!”

Go Overseas Staff Interview: Ryan
Here is our Marketing Coordinator, Ryan C., sharing his thoughts on what’s most rewarding working for Adelante in his staff interview for Go Overseas.
I have learnt a lot from my placement, such an amazing experience. Exactly what I wanted and what I expected: to be exposed to a private clinical setting, covering a range of problems starting from family crises finishing with schizophrenia. The doctor himself and his crew were very supportive and friendly, which I think is quite important especially for a new person which doesn’t really know Spanish. During the month, my comprehension skills rocketed up as well as reading, the doctor asks you to read A LOT ( a piece of advice for someone doing the same placement is to read beforehand, it will greatly assist during your internship and in general in your future career)
I have really enjoyed my time here in Madrid! I think this has been an amazing learning experience and I have really grown professionally and personally. As far as working with Accenture I would recommend them to other business students. I believe that I am doing meaningful work that will directly correlate to the work I will be doing when I start full-time. Also they do not usually give me busy work, so if they ask me to do something it directly adds value to what the team is trying to achieve. I have had some down-time especially in August, but I was prepared for this and I used this time to strengthen my excel skills or practice Spanish.
As far as the crazy process, I think the process helped me to learn more about how business is conducted in Spain. I am so happy that I made the decision to intern with Adelante and that I was able to work with Accenture. You all have been a big help in making this one of the best summers ever
