A really nice place with jazz, sofas and the best gin-tonics is the CHASTON. I used to work there, if you go there, say hi to the coolest boss ever and his wife: Paco & Ana! It is not the regular students bar but a nice place with many locals!

Computer facilities at the university are pretty non-existant. Unless you want to spend a fortune at internet cafes (like I did) its a good idea to have a lap top.

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: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
I had a reasonable level before going to spain so i was quite confident in using the language. An intensive language course was a great help at the start of the year. By the end of the year I felt confident in my ability to speak and communicate in Spanish in any situation.

FINAL COMMENTS

Travel tips: It is very easy to get anywhere in Spain and you should do that. It is realy a beautiful country with many different things to do. You can ski for one day in the Pirineos and the other day ly on the beach of San Sebastian. Do not hesitate to visit the countryside with the cheaper prices, more friendlier people and overwhelming tapas! Personal favour spots: Barcelona, Cadiz, Valencia, Sevilla en little villages such as Cuenca.
