There were a lot of Italian students, which was good because with them I spoke Spanish. With Germans I usually spoke English. There were many Southamericans too. I also had some spanish friends.

Final comments
Try to make friends with students from other countries. Don't hang with students from your home country. Find Spanish and Latinamericans friends to really learn Spanish. Have fun! Go out at night. Especially in the beginning. That's when you get to know most people.
