GREETINGS FROM SEVILLE
The Summer Internships students arrived safely, and they seem to be very enthusiastic about the idea of enjoying this experience.
After the three days orientation session, with the informative sessions about academics, housing, safety, activities and the Bystander Intervention Training (BIT) session by the CIEE Seville Student Services Director, Morgan Reiss, students had the chance of visiting the Alcazar, one of the most representative monumental compounds in the city, the country and the Mediterranean culture as a whole and to attend a flamenco show.
The students are in the middle of the Advanced Spanish Grammar, Composition and Conversation class, designed to help students prepare for their experiences by increasing listening and comprehension skills and building vocabulary.
PREAPARATORY SESSION AND INTERNSHIP FORUM
Before the Internship Forum students attended a preparatory session where the Internship Coordinator provided them with in-depth information about the companies participating in the program and some tips about dress code, greeting, speaking, etc and all the information about the participant companies.
A total of 18 companies attended our CIEE Internship Forum on May 31st. As a real process, students had interviews with several companies showing their best to get an internship in their favorite companies. At this time, all the students have been already placed in local companies.
Students have visited two beautiful cities in Andalusia: Cordoba, home of the amazing mosque and Granada, one of the most beautiful cities in Spain.
