Review Overall Rating
My Adelante experience was all I expected it to be. The family I stayed with was super helpful and the kids living there took me out several times to show me how locals have fun. I got to skate a lot, which was something I really wanted to do while in Barcelona. The internship was slightly different than the type of work I normally do, but nevertheless it was quite helpful and I learned skills I can apply to my future design work.
Wonderful apartment and family, I had a great time!

Wouldn't change my experience in Barcelona for the world! I look through my photos from my summer in Europe at least a few times a week! I met incredible people, and was able to do remarkable things! I would recommend this trip to anyone!

I really enjoyed Barcelona and the people were very nice but some time not understanding. I was surprised by how many people lived there but ended up really loving it. The amount of shops and cafes was amazing, and of course I enjoyed the beach. I learned quite a bit of Spanish and I miss the friends I made there.
Adelante - Intern in Barcelona Review
Reviewed by grad student on .
Adelante in the United States is a great program to go through. The only downside of the program was the communication on the Barcelona side of the internship. The contact in Barcelona seemed non-existant and I would choose to go to my internship for questions and help rather then my contact.
Adelante - Intern in Barcelona One of the best decisions I have ever made.

Adelante made everything possible for me. I had the opportunity to be immersed in a new, exciting culture and work with locals as an intern. My experience was invaluable, being challenged intellectually, emotionally, professionally, and more every day. I met some amazing people native to Catalonia and from all over the world.
This program placed me in a wonderful apartment with a great host, set me up with two weeks of Spanish courses to strengthen my skills, and the perfect internship working with the best people I could ever ask for. Everyone on the Adelante staff was so helpful and happy to answer all my questions, and were very knowledgeable about the city and what to expect. They exceeded my expectations - I recommend this group to anyone who is interested in studying/interning in Spain!!
Adelante - Intern in Barcelona I would not repeat this experience
Reviewed by Eimajamme on .
While I was able to meet new people, if knowing now what I do, I would not repeat this experience and would possibly use another agency. While the agency in California was most helpful, the administration failed in Barcelona and my housing was not what was told to me in my paperwork. I wish that there would have been an emphasis in the fact that Barcelona does not believe itself to be part of Spain but rather part of Catalunyia. This proved to be quite difficult for my working experience and improving my Spanish.
Adelante - Intern in Barcelona This is something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime. Adelante successfully broadened my horizons with this amazing experience.

I am pleased to say that Adelante has provided me with the most amazing experience. I was the lucky scholarship winner of a three month internship in Barcelona. Not only are my horizons considerably widened I've also gained some much needed international experience. My photography and writing portfolio is pretty impressive - even if I have to say so myself. Apart from that I've also made some amazing new friends.
