Here is what some previous interns have had to say about working at Ultralingua:

“This was a world away from my other internship experience because I was given the opportunity to be independent and show that I am able to do something without the immediate help of a superior. I am really excited to bring my samples from this internship with me out into the [workplace] because I am proud of what I have accomplished. Thank you for this opportunity!”

“I enjoyed the independence that was given to me… I can’t remember a time this summer that I was bored or was searching for something to do. I really appreciate the confidence that was given to me by my superiors, I think it will better prepare me for the ‘real world’ of work.”
