Adelante Abroad Reviews
Summer in Quito!
Submitted by Nadja - McNeese State University | September 19, 2017
Spending part of my summer in Quito was an amazing opportunity. While there were rough moments/challenges, I gained so much experience. I knew minimal Spanish when I arrived, and was able to learn the language very quickly with my classes. I also gained a huge amount of academic/professional experience. If you're looking to travel, gain a lot of hands on career practice, and overall life experience, this is a great program. Happy I decided to travel with Adelante.

My time in Ecuador was a trip that I will never forget. Adelante does a great job in setting up a network in order to get you the best experience in terms of living and job placement. During my internship, I got the chance to have a hands on experience learning how to take blood, administer IV’s, attend wounds, and have an up close experience observing simple surgeries. I also got the chance to be fully submerged in a culture completely different then what I am used to. I was able to improve my soonish skills as well as learning about a beautiful and new culture. My time spent with my host family was one that I will never forget as well as the amount of friends I made while I was there. Adelante did a great job in making sure we had a program director we could count on for anything. I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking out an experience that can make you outstanding to employers as well as making you a better person all around.
two-month internship in Quito
Submitted by Angelica - Simmons College | August 24, 2017
This program has a lot to offer the independent traveler. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience living with a host-family, having one-on-one Spanish lessons, and working for a marketing and communications firm in the city of Quito. I was fortunate to be here at the same time as many other students, some from the U.S. and some from around the world, that shared the same local program director as me. Thus, I was able to travel (affordably) around the country with new friends every weekend. I think this program would be difficult for someone who wants all of their time organized by an outside party. However, if you like having freedom to explore and use your time as you want to, this program is an ideal option for you. The city of Quito is large and intimidating, but it is not impossible to figure out. In fact, figuring it out is part of the adventure.
Summer in Barcelona
Submitted by memphistobarcelona - Rhodes College | August 03, 2017
My summer internship with Adelante in Barcelona was definitely one of the best experiences of my life! The Adelante team worked closely with me before, during, and even after my trip, and their communication is quick and thoughtful. I was nervous about working in Spanish all summer but the two weeks of classes at Kingsbrook Idiomas made me feel much more secure, and I left at the end of the summer feeling like I had gained in all areas of my Spanish language mastery. My social work internship was at a summer program for at-risk youth, and I absolutely loved everyone I worked with there. Living in Barcelona also made travel throughout Europe super easy - I visited seven countries in just ten weeks! This summer was amazing, and Adelante and its staff was definitely a huge part in making it happen. I can't thank them enough, and I would highly recommend the program!
Summer in Barcelona
Submitted by memphistobarcelona - Rhodes College | July 31, 2017
I absolutely loved my experience with Adelante in Barcelona. The language classes at Kingsbrook pushed me beyond the work I had completed at my university in the US, and I got to meet tons of interesting people who I might never have befriended otherwise. My apartment was in a quiet, residential neighborhood with the sweetest landlady. My internship was with a program Adelante highly recommended, and I felt supported there. The Adelante staff is excellent at communicating with interns throughout the application process, before departure, and during the internship placement. I could always count on my questions being answered promptly and carefully. Would do this program again in a heartbeat and wish I could have stayed longer!
