IMPORTANT: Adelante Abroad, LLC is not a “middle man” or “agent”. Rather, we create proprietary, customized programs for our individual, screened candidates. To do this we use long-standing contacts in our respective countries of operation and with negotiated rates for all services provided, including but not limited to airport pickup services, language coursework and excursion services, and housing services worldwide. More importantly, our staff of Intern Advisors and Directors abroad are professionals in the international education and student exchange industry, used to working with foreign candidates and often times with complimentary professional careers in place as well as their service to Adelante Abroad. For example, our Director in Madrid also owns the language school where International Internship Program candidates will take their Spanish coursework. By design, these representatives are locals living, and many times born and raised, in the city where they work for us and speak both Spanish and English. These are your contacts while in-country for most aspects of the program and all have both day and evening phone.
