Logement
Type de logement: Appartement/maison
Organisé par: Indépenant - choix personnel
Si j'y retournais je choisirais: Appartement/maison
Pourquoi?
The main residence hall was located close to campus but far from the rest of the city. For the money, an apartment is much cheaper and a much more authentic living environment. Dealing with everyday living, like grocery shopping or ordering butane tanks, can be a challenge at times, but only help improve language and adaptability skills.

The apartment was beautiful, completely furnished, including a TV, dishes, pots, pans, even towels! For the price it was excellent. The housing company we dealt with, Blau Housing, was very helpful and professional. I would rent from them again.

Best bars: area around Maria Cubi and Amigo streets, especially Mas i Mas, Bubblic Bar and Universal. Good clubs are Otto Zutz, although it can be touristy, Sunset for Spanish disco music, and Illusion.

Commentaire personnel
Exchange students will not fail ESADE's courses unless they really try to. So, to improve academics, the school could hold exchange students more accountable. However, I personally wouldn't like to see that changed.

Commentaire personnel
Some classes were taught in English and nearly all students and staff spoke some English so communication was not a problem at ESADE. In Barcelona, while most people speak Castilian Spanish in addition to Catalan, you will generally overhear conversations in Catalan, see most television in Catalan, and read most signs in Catalan. With a basic knowledge of Spanish or any other romance language, Catalan is quite easy to read. However, you must seek out opportunities to practice "castellano" as you will not just pick it up by osmosis.

Not to live in the Residence Hall. I lived there for about a month and it was a waste of money. It was also very isolating socially, as most students lived downtown and cab rides to the Res Hall were quite expensive. Also, get a mobile phone as soon as you can. It improves your social life immensely and is very cheap and easy to use. The mobile phone system is far better than the system in the United States.

Recommandation personnelle
The university is small, but they do plan a lot of diverse and fun activities for exchange students. Through the university alone, I went on a ski trip to Andorra, trips to Girona and Figueres. ESADE sponsored a "sports competition weekend" at a resort in the country that was really fun. There was an end-of-semester ball and a Christmas party, in addition to the weekly parties planned in conjunction with local clubs. Academically, ESADE has a good reputation. If you're looking for a challenge, this may not be the place, but you can learn a lot if you choose to. I was able to take my classes pass/fail, so it wasn't a huge priority for me.

I have to say the year spent in Barcelona was the best in my life. Although I can't say I was challenged academically, I was challenged in so many other ways, especially with language and cultural barriers. Barcelona is my favorite city in Europe. It is completely unique. It's not a typical Spanish city, but it's not like any other European city either. It has beautiful architecture, the sea, and the mountains, all in one. There are so many things to do there, but it is also not TOO far away from the rest of Europe or Spain by train. If you can't study there, you MUST go visit.

At the time, the exchange rate favored the dollar significantly. However, after visiting Barcelona again this past summer, I noticed that the cost of living is just much lower, especially in terms of food and nightlife.

Commentaire personnel
Day to day living is very low cost in Barcelona. My biggest expense came from traveling. This can get expensive, although the costs can go down depending on how much you plan ahead and what sacrifices you're willing to make.
