That can be right, Dale. The way you put it, left room to interpret as not existing ''internship'' at universities.
I do read it again, buddy. Wikipedia in its turn, provided another context, if I am not missing something.
After a while, you say that the interns were at the high school level, slightly suggesting that there aren´t other kinds of internships (meaning at colleges one could think). I know that it isn´t what you stated, indeed it´s the way you stated it. I don´t talk for others, anyway, at least a handful of learners could read it and interpreted this way. As for Ms. Lewinsky, I was not getting to the true sense of the word (that´s more,
she wasn´t an intern in the field of Politics, I realize.)
I admit, tough, that I was hasty in my mental translation when I read that “internship
não é uma coisa comum nos EUA”; now I know better. It´s because in the USA there´s a world of difference of our internship (and apprenticeship) as we know in Brazil.
So, my mea culpa, for the part I misquoted then.
You know, the aim is to offer the EMB reader our best, and create knowledge as stated by the Rules of the House. If we ask and push you to discussion, this only can be good, for the sake of the learner. Only this way we can have our doubts clarified, and mine can be that of others, sometimes.
As an aside, your participations are valuable and insightful, I must say.
