Spanish language course
Prior to your internship you will participate in an intensive language course. This way we can make sure you will reach the required level of Spanish in order to work in a Spanish speaking company. The duration of the course will depend on your current level, but will take at least two weeks. Before you can start at the company, you should have reached a B1-B2 level (more information). Based on your level test and internship requirements, the internship co-ordinator will determine the minimum length of your Spanish course in order to guarantee your internship afterwards. Only in exceptional cases is there is an option to start at a company where your level of Spanish is under a B1.
