Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I did enjoy living with a family because it gave me an inside look at the Spanish culture, but since I do already have that experience I would like to go back and have more freedom in my home there.
Personal comments:
The program, API, was very accommodating for those who had housing problems. Such as there was one person who had issues with his host family and the program immediately found him a better placement.

KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Nightlife: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
My favorite spot was right around the block that i lived on, called Aldemeda de Herculis. You can't place the center of town without going into the Cadedral de Seville, its just breathe taking! To shop, Calle Tetuan has by far the best shops. Triana is the place to be during the month on April fo Feria, don't miss out!!

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
Although the university offers classes in English, it is more beneficial to you to take the Spanish-speaking courses only. It may be frustrating at first but you learn much quicker.

Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.

I think there should more encouragement and more venues to interact with the local students. Sometimes the school felt segregated.

KEY:

I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.

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:
My only qualm with the university was the segregation between the international and local students. Although it was not the university's fault that I was not as involved with the local students, I did feel interaction was not as encouraged as it should have been on either side.
