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: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
I had just spent 4 months in Portugal so althought originally my Spanish was much better I spent the 1st week trying to speak Potuguese! A week of flat hunting soon sorted that out and from then on I got back on track. Teachers are really friendly and try to mix speaking spanish and any other language they know to help you out.
