I loved my boss and internship, but I think for my majors it would've been better if I had been placed in a company or agency. I have to majors and I thought it would have been easy to place me in something more related to either of them

I had an amazing experience this summer! My internship was a great learning experience and I felt very comfortable living in Barcelona. The city was beautiful and I can't wait to come back as soon as I can.
Great mix of structure and freedom and great balance of work and play

The Barcelona SAE Summer Internship program really allows interns to make their experience in Barcelona whatever they want it to be--whether they would rather participate in pre-planned activities and excursions outside of the internships or whether they would like to explore the city and Europe on their own. As far as the internships themselves, the program aims to let interns engagingly work in the type of field they desire without the jobs being too stressful or overbearing. This program puts a lot of work into making sure that students have a fulfilling experience within the workplace but also encourages its participants and provides them with resources to have fun and explore outside of the workplace.
Six interesting weeks in Barcelona

Barcelona was not what I had envisioned. It was different from what I had in mind, which is what makes it a fascinating place to me. I learned a lot about the city and the Catalan culture. I felt more like a local than a tourist, if being frankly.
I chose the city randomly. I had thought about coming to Spain, although did not gave much thought about Barcelona. However, when I got some information about this program (Barcelona SAE), I became immediately attracted to it. My internship consisted of working with children, we spoke to them in English, and there were other interns whom spoke Dutch. Some parents are Dutch, other's English, others Spaniards/Catalans but all of them wanted for their children to learn English. Which is a great idea to learn a new language at a young age, better yet English as it can be essential.
My living situation was in a home stay with only a woman and her two cats. I am her first intern/guest, ever. She has never hosted for anyone before. This was excellent! That is, because she was so sweet and accommodating, and a "chill person." She did not know much about it as it was her first time hosting, therefore, she was getting the hang of it, and due to that she was very easy-going. I am pretty sure we will remain friends!
Overall, I loved the program. The staff are very nice, sweet, friendly, and helpful. The city is amazing, you have to see it for yourself!

My Barcelona experience was everything I hoped it would be and more. I tried to take advantage of all of the opportunities I was given which is what truly made the experience incredible. If I could do it al over again, I would easily come back to Barcelona if not another city in Spain.
