Intern in Chile Update: Ryan A. (International Business)
“The Chile life is great. I’ve noticed that time is swinging by fairly quickly, especially given that I have so much work (and as well many options to relax) under me. My Spanish has definitely improved in terms of speed, but the grammar is being influenced by the Chilean language. I wouldn’t say it’s an improvement, but quite a change! Otherwise, my company is keeping me relatively busy, and when not, I still have application things to do and I’m writing macros for them as well!”

Go Overseas Staff Interview: Ryan
Here is our Digital Marketing Specialist, 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 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.
