I did my Internship in a hospital in Valencia, working 4 days a week for a total of 8 weeks. I worked many different roles like assisting on the reception, shadowing surgical procedures, helping nurses with their consultancies and assisting professionals in the emergencies department.
I lived with a Host Family during my stay here and I am so glad I did! It has been a fantastic way to get to know the way of living here and to learn Spanish. I think it has really helped me to feel welcomed too and to have good company. My host mother only spoke Spanish so this was good practice and what I really liked was that I always had someone to talk to. Staying with a host family means you don’t feel alone and you can feel the family atmosphere.
When I started the course I was not comfortable speaking Spanish at all but the classes and the Spanish environment helped me to learn vocab and grammar, but mainly to gain confidence speaking!
I think the best part has been the friends and people I’ve met. I feel fortunate to have met people from all over the world, even though I have only been here for a few weeks. Its been fun to be with them both in class and outside of class too. My biggest challenge has been speaking with native Spanish speakers- they speak very fast and it is hard to understand them! But I understood my teachers well and this helped me to feel more confident to speak to the natives.
Isabel and Jose are so kind and helpful! It was so nice to have somewhere I knew I could count on to help me with anything I needed during my stay. Can’t wait to go back to Valencia and see them!
Euroace allowed me to find my internship as well as a place to stay for the 2 months I spent in Valencia. The team works very hard to make sure everyone has a fun experience. I knew I could count on them if I needed help or advice, and I had a great time meeting people and discovering the city.
My program with Euroace was an unforgettable experience. I lived in a flat near the center, which was in a very good location. I still remember how to go to the market, the stadium, the train station, shopping center, and so many places! Public transportation in Valencia was very convenient. I used both bus and train to visit other cities like Barcelona and Madrid. To go to my office, I just took the bus which only took 10-15 minutes. The internship program was a very good chance for me to experience online promotion. And I could also learn Spanish from my Spanish teacher. On top of that, Valencia is an amazingly gorgeous city! It’s a coastal city with palm trees everywhere and has very nice weather and sun. And especially in summer, it’s a very nice place to do shopping as well. If you want to spend your time doing some work and studying Spanish at the same time, Valencia would be the best choice!

I would say my favorite part of the overall experience has been the excursions we’ve been on (to Barcelona, Madrid, Xativa and Morella). I loved visiting these different cities on our weekend group trips and doing the guided walking tours where we learned about the cities and the architecture around us. The biggest challenge has definitely been the language! Also, the difference in meal times was a big adaptation for me at first. However, once I got used to communicating with my host family and adjusted to the new meal times, everything was okay!
Spain is home to the best level of soccer in the world and so it was a perfect location to come and learn about sports marketing and especially the soccer industry. The best parts of the internship have been getting to see the elite facilities and stadium of a La Liga team and getting to work alongside professionals who have also become friends. This experience has made me feel more motivated towards my future career and it has helped me realize that it’s necessary to prepare yourself, to get qualified and to learn as much as you can in order to grow and be successful.
I participated in a 6 weeks Spanish course during my summer off. The course was informative, easy going and made learning Spanish extremely fun, by offering language exchange nights and day trips in and around Valencia! I would recommend Euroace Spanish courses to anyone looking to learn this beautiful language and enjoy the experience!
I loved my experience with Euroace. Everyone there was fantastic and kind. They were willing to bring me into their circle and invite me to different places. I quickly got used to the city and felt right at home in Valencia because of everyone at Euroace. I wasn’t able to go on a lot of the excursions, but the few that I went on were a lot of fun and great new experiences. I was able to learn how to cook Paella, the traditional dish of Valencia, which was very cool and tasty. The internship they set me up with was top class. I was able to learn a lot of different things working with the company. In all, there is nothing bad that I can say about Euroace. Everyone is friendly and willing to help, the housing accommodations are ideal, and the city is absolutely gorgeous.
An experience with Euroace is an experience you’ll treasure forever. The company’s Directors, Isa and José, are two of the most wonderful people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Their friendly personalities and enthusiasm for educating their students about the Spanish culture are beyond words! Euroace offers a host of activities to ensure that your time in Valencia is well spent. From weekly language exchanges and internships, to excursions and sporting events, Euroace offers them all. I’ve loved my time in Spain so much that i’m heading back there to pursue my postgraduate studies there 🙂 Highly recommended!
