Long-Distance Internships from the comfort of your home from anywhere in the world!
The world has changed due to COVID-19 and now there are so many opportunities and experiences available to students. An internship is a very valuable experience where you become part of worldwide organizations and use the language that you have learned while gaining practical experience. You can make the most of your education by doing a remote internship from anywhere in the world with a flexible schedule from the comfort of your home. The most common placements are with internet-friendly jobs such as marketing, translation and technology. Strong communication and time-management skills and well as knowledge of virtual platforms are key to succeeding since your colleagues will be across the country instead of being in the same workplace. To make the most of your experience, combine your internship with Spanish classes so that you can reinforce the vocabulary used in your field.
You can choose between these placements in Seville:

Mediterranean diet is well known for being a very healthy way of eating. It is a balanced diet, the main ingredient is olive oil that is produced in Spain with Spanish olives. Learn some recipes that are very easy to prepare and learn how Spanish people eat their meals.
The goal of this workshop is to bring students closer to a celebration with years of tradition in Spain. This religious celebration takes place everywhere in the country but it is specially known the way they celebrate it in Andalucía and more specifically in Seville: The Holy Week. Students will get to know this celebration through images and videos that will make them travel there and become the protagonist of this experience with the guide of the teacher.
With this workshop we want to take students to one the most famous spring festivities in Spain. It is celebrated in Sevilla and Sevillanos wait for this with enthusiasm the whole year long: La Feria de Abril.
Students will have the chance to learn about the origin of this fun celebration that started as a cattle sales fair and how it developed into a “fiesta” that gathers people from all over the world.
To finish the workshop we will even show you some basic steps of the folk dance so you can feel part of the party.
The main goal of this workshop is to explain to students about this controversial celebration. We are providing them with objective information to help them think about this Spanish tradition. By the end of the workshop students might get their own opinions, against or in favor, and share them in debate with the class.
This is the perfect time to get up and get speaking!!!!
