Teaching English in Spain: Thumbs up!!
Submitted by Shannon Cortes - Kings College University | October 27, 2015
I´m really glad I took part in the programme. I improved my Spanish so much whilst I was there, and made some incredible friends that will keep them in my memories.The internship in a city in Northern Spain was paid but not much. I earned a bit of money by teaching English in a family-run English School specially to School kids and young adults. This was perfect for me because I´m planning on becoming a teacher after I graduate. I shared a flat with a few foreign university students. We had a great time, lots of parties and we ended up being really good friends.
Jobs in Spain: Working at hotels through my paid internship in Spain
Submitted by Ole Solosenco - San Diego State University | October 27, 2015
I had the great opportunity to make my dreams true. My internship in Spain was in a little village on the Mediterranean sea. It was a top hotel. I learned how to manage a hotel by doing lots of different things: welcoming customers, allocating rooms for them waiting tables, tending bar, etc.
I met a lot of young people coming from different countries in Europe and we had lots of fun together.
Above all I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere I found there. The staff was young and dynamic and we had a good time. My priority was improving my Spanish and I got it. I also took 2 weeks of Spanish courses before going to the placement
People at Instituto Hemingway were very helpful!!

My experience in Spain with culinary arts
Submitted by Jose Aranzubia - New York | February 09, 2015
I loved this program. It was a inmersion program combined with Spanish courses for 2 weeks at the beginning, before the placement. The location was perfect for me. It was a village with all kind of facilities, top hotel, nice staff, superb chefs and all in all a great atmosphere where I learnt all about Spanish cuisine.

Instituto Hemingway reviews
Submitted by Wendy - University of Memphis | May 26, 2011
I really enjoyed my experience with Instituto Hemingway. They offered me jobs after taking 8 weeks with them. The price was a bit higher than expected. US$ does not help at this moment either but leisure activities were free too. The atmosphere was familiar and enjoyable and if I have to say something to improve is that there were many people from Europe but not from USA and other continents. I guess that the reason is that Bilbao is not very popular yet.
If you really want to improve your Spanish this is the place for you. Small groups, great methodology and above all opportunities to meet other Spaniards and make friends there. Instituto Hemingway offers also the opportunity to find you jobs which I think not many Schools do it.
My shared apartment was superb!! I really enjoyed the area and very close to Instituto Hemingway. There was WIFI and all kind of facilities including a cleaner once per week.
Program: Low Budget Spanish Course
