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.

Overall
I wish I had known...
No,I hadn't. I had been to Spain before, but only visiting,not living there. So with most of the daily situations or some kind of problems I had to face at the moment of starting my scholarship.

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.

Housing
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.

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!!
