Internship positions  
Amongst our partners are well-known international and national companies, medium-sized and small Chilean enterprises, private and public institutions, non-profit organizations as well as governmental authorities.  

Normally, internships in Chile are unpaid work experience opportunities. In some companies interns receive food vouchers or traveling allowance. Paid internships are the exception! A couple of our partner companies offer some compensation money for their interns. If there is a vacant position in one of these companies, we will try to place you there.

About ALTE:
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment, abbreviated as CEFR, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe. It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project "Language Learning for European Citizenship" between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of assessing and teaching which applies to all languages in Europe. In November 2001 a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels (see below) are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual's language proficiency.

The CEFR describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing at each level.
