Intern Abroad Update: Karina. (Intern in Madrid, Psychology)
“So far I’m loving madrid. The city itself is so amazing and so beautiful, it’s only the second European country I’ve been to, but I’m falling in love with it. The heat though, not as much, but it’s something I can deal with. On the social front, so far me and my roommates get along great! So that is also helpful when it goes for exploring the city..”

Intern in Abroad Update: Taylor W. (Intern in Marbella, Business)
“I like San Pedro a lot, I went walking around on my own and I went out last night with my host parents and later with a neighbor. Next weekend I am tagging along with a friend of my host brother to Granada! I feel really overwhelmed with the Spanish, of course I knew that it wouldn’t be easy at first but it’s a lot to take in. I went to the bilingual school on Friday, the class was a joke for me because it was much too easy, so I asked to be placed in a higher level on Monday. I also already started my internship on Friday, I met the people in the office and just did a really simple task of putting patient’s names into their computer system- nothing too overwhelming. For now, that’s about it!””

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 would participate in another Adelante program if given the chance. The program was extremely affordable in comparison to the others available and yet in comparing my experience with friends who choose other programs, Adelante never felt like a cookie cutter experience. It is true that it didn’t have as many excursions or trips, but I preferred the independence to explore the culture on my own. I was able to make my own experience and that was more rewarding then going on a packaged tour.
