Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.

Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I think it's really interesting to share a flat with other people from different countries,not only because you have to speak in a foreign language but also because from sharing everyday life we can learn a lot on each other

Personal comments:
Well, in Madrid, there are plenty of nice corners. You hardly can select the best one. Of course, famous night clubs as Palacio de Gaviria is always to be seen. At my home town, Getafe that is 15km from Madrid city centre there where quite nice corner cafes and even an irish pub.

It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: Spanish
Was learning Spanish a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Spanish
How much did you improve your Spanish?
My level before: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
Spanish seem to be very friendly towards strangers but they take the opportunity to use their english skills when they can. Courses in Spanish were the most useful part but also the communication with the local people (e.g. landlady who did not speak english at all etc.)
