- Setting Description:
- An economic powerhouse, a center for business in Europe, and a culturally rich city, Barcelona is an incredible location for an international internship! In a privileged position on the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean (near France), Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain in both size and population. The population of the city proper is 1.5 million, but this number spirals to nearly 5 million if the outlying areas are included. Barcelona has 2 official languages: Castilian Spanish and Catalan, which is generally spoken in all of Catalonia. Living in Barcelona will give you the opportunity to practice and improve your own Spanish language abilities. Due to Barcelona’s location, you will also have the chance to learn more about unique Catalan experiences such as Caganers (small statues) and Castellers (human towers that can reach up to 10 stories tall). Love being outdoors? The temperate climate of Barcelona means you can enjoy the

I always knew that I wanted to travel to Barcelona, so I was excited when I made the decision to do an internship through CISabroad. My experience ended up being the absolute best that it could have been. I am an international business major worked for
a company that worked with solar energy technology, and it was a great experience because the company I worked for had partnerships with companies in many different countries. I was able to learn a lot about an industry I had not considered before which was really enjoyable. I enjoyed my internship experience very much. The CIS onsite staff provided support for all of the students in case we ever needed help with something or had an emergency. They were also really great about letting us know about different events going on in the city - we received a weekly cultural agenda with different activities to do every weekend in the city. There were also multiple day trips outside of Barcelona included in the program, as well as a week of intensive Spanish classes. Overall, my experience in Barcelona was absolutely incredible, and I hope that I can go back again someday. I would recommend this program to anyone!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
