as all the courses taught in Granada University are in Spanish this was a perfect way to practise my language skills. and extremely important is also to live with locals to help to acquire everyday knowledge and youth slang.

a very good cost-saving tip is to eat lunch in university diners. doesn't cost much and delicious. a financial surprise is the cost of internet at house and mobile bills. internet is quite expensive and mobile phone is really expensive comparing to my home country.

I wish I had known...
i guess that to have things done here in Spain, you need to be patient. first 2 weeks were awful. everything takes so much time, really nerve-racking. but now i'm already quite used to that:))

well, as I love asian food, my favourite restaurants are the Japanese ones. they are also the most clean ones. and also Mexican food is quite good here. well, my favourite nightclub was "el Camborio" and the best bar "Bella y Bestia", which serves the best tapas:)) oh, and d'Cuadros - the bar to go for a glass of strawberry wine and nice music.

Personal comments
although the university tried to help with housing it is better to manage the things by yourself. that way you can find cheaper possibilities and university search takes way too much time.
