if you want to learn spanish, this is very possible here, although 2 semesters are required to get a high level. great city, nice people, good level of education and of course lots of stuff to do. in short: if you feel attracted to spain and spanish stuff, you should come to madrid.

I'm not sure what I'm expected to write here. I'm fluent in Spanish and have been for many many years. The only problem I had was that I speak Latin American spanish so at times there were slight difficulties in understanding each other.

Madrid is the place in Europe with the highest number of locals per inhabitant and I tried to visit them all... I can't easily tell one but I suggest going to explore in Calle de la Montera.
