Going abroad for your first time can be scary, messy, and challenging, and I have a whole list of things that I wish I knew before studying abroad in Spain.

Intern Life: Living in Marbella
Stephen H. just wrapped up his Intern in Marbella program. He was kind enough to give us a quick little summary on Marbella and what to expect from this little blip in the Costa del Sol.
Marbella is a very nice Andalusian town that attracts tourists from all over the world during the summer. If you have been to Spain’s larger cities and want that sort of ambiance while you’re in the country, Marbella may not be the town for you. I would describe Marbella as a large pueblo. In no way is it a city, but it is not a small sleepy town. For those looking for a relaxing time with plenty of sun and beach this is the town for you! The language school Inlingua was great and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. I recommend working here but be warned that during the summer there are not many students and you may not get many hours. The old town of Marbella is picturesque. Navigating around this part of Spain is easy with the bus service from Marbella. Málaga is very close and great. Ronda is definitely worth a day’s visit. All in all, you will enjoy your time in Marbella as I did!
