Good experience, but several issues needed to be fixed
I had a wonderful time in Spain. After a housing issue, I decided to make the best of the situation and had a great experience meeting new people and enjoying traveling around Spain and to other countries.
No oven, no microwave, broken shower head
Felt very safe in Seville

Adelante - Intern in Seville Sevilla

I would have rather lived with a Spanish family (instead of other Americans) and be completely immersed. I also would have appreciated more continued study at La Giralda Center; maybe instead of 2 weeks at the beginning, a stead 3 days a week for the whole program or something like that.

I was an intern at Fundacion Triangulo, a non-profit organization that advocates for LGBT rights in Spain, for three months and had a pretty good experience with both the people there and at Adelante. It is a very independent program which is both good and bad, meaning once Adelante arranges an internship or study abroad for you they do not take great troubles to keep up, although they are certainly there in case problems emerge or you have questions. Nobody holds your hand though Mary Alice was my Adelante representative in Sevilla and she was an incredible resource, welcoming and knowledgeable. She has lived in Spain for a very long time and knows the ins and outs of spanish life and culture, and helped me get acclimated to a very different lifestyle. I was not expecting life to be all too different from my life at home and was in for a big surprise. Spanish culture is beautiful and at times strange to an outsider, but that is the fun of it I suppose! Sevilla is an extraordinary, graceful city with so many layers of history and so much to explore. I was lucky enough to be placed in a homestay with a girl who I grew to become good friends with! I would go again to Sevilla in a heartbeat, especially to see my friends at Fundacion Triangulo. I'm not sure how much the internship itself taught me versus experiencing life in Spain, but I certainly learned a lot and to me that is the most important aspect of any experience.
