“This is a once in a life-time kind of program. The internship placements felt very personal and cultivated toward my professional goals. Nicole is always extremely friendly, conscientious, and quick to respond to emails/concerns/questions. I stayed in Spain and I can say that my Spanish vastly improved, especially because of the emphasis Nicole put on speaking Spanish the whole time. As awesome as the internship placement was, I also felt like there were lots of opportunities for weekend trips and to make friends with locals. I’d highly recommend for people interested in cultural immersion.”

Amelia Wyatt, Duke University student

Program Overview

The Summer Internships in Spain program provides a unique opportunity to live, and gain professional experience, in the beautiful coastal city of La Coruña, Spain! You’ll be fully immersed in the Spanish language and culture as you’ll both live and intern with Spanish speakers.

English/Spanish conversation exchange

We place you in an internship relevant to your learning objectives.  All interns earn academic credit for their internships and Spanish language courses.

The program is 5 or 10 weeks long; and, you can extend your stay upon request. Internships are usually Monday-Friday in the morning hours and Spanish classes are given Monday-Wednesday in the afternoons.

Why La Coruña? La Coruña is a breathtaking coastal city in the lush region of Galicia – offering beautiful beaches, delicious tapas bars, fresh seafood, and great nightlife! It’s also one of the best cities in Spain to learn Spanish; as, it allows for complete immersion in the Spanish language. Beyond our group, it’s very unlikely that you’ll run into other Americans or native English speakers. In more touristy Spanish cities, there are many English speakers which can make learning Spanish more difficult. If you’re looking for the best place to improve your Spanish while enjoying lively Spanish life, on a budget, La Coruña is the city to choose.
