Alex Towell“My time at the ILCE internship has been great. I’ve been able to use and practice my Spanish daily with native Spanish speakers, learn new vocabulary, and gain knowledge and experience on subjects that I didn’t know beforehand. Overall this has been a great experience because of all of the skills and knowledge that I have acquired during my time here, which I will undoubtedly be able to utilize in the future in the working world. My Spanish has improved immensely and the experience that I’ve gotten here has been priceless and irreplaceable."

Josh Ecker“My time interning with ILCE was incredible. I was given the opportunity use my Spanish in a work environment, allowing me to enhance my fluency in the language and become much more comfortable talking to native Spanish speakers. I also gained work experience that can be transferred over to a career after graduation. Being a Spanish and International Business Major, this internship was very beneficial as it helped prepare me to work with people from different cultures, teaching me to be more open-minded to different ways of doing things. I would highly recommend interning abroad to any student who is even considering entering a career field with the potential to be working with people from other countries.”
