treat the exchange students equally with respect to non-exchange students. this year was by far the easiest year i have ever had.i would have liked it to be a little more intense.

I wish I had known...
To bring slippers. It is pretty tough to break a 20 Euro bill. Coins are much more useful, but HEAVY.

Personal recommendation
Take lots of notes. If you miss a class, get those notes from someone else. All the exams are about testing how much you have memorized from the lectures and are able to spit back.

Final comments
Get a Bono Bus card, use Eurovoice to call home, get a cell phone with Vodafone, beware of pick-pockets, walk on the opposite side of the street from the cathedral to avoid being hussled, and don't walk around alone at night esp. in Santa Cruz and around the Torre de Oro.

Stay away from "home food" it is a better cultural experience and cheaper to stave away from imported food establishments. ie. McDonalds, Pans & Co., Pizza Hut, etc...

Personal comments
Be warned: the Sevillan dialect is NOT easy to understand, BUT after a while you get used to it. The only way to really improve your Spanish is to get to know locals. It's not very easy, but just go to the Feria de Abril, a little chat here and there and there you go! I have some good friends in Sevilla now. People there are usually very friendly and willing to talk to strangers (that is, if you are interested yourself, and don't act like a complete tourist).

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
My apartment was located in the Pedro Salvador neighborhood near the Betis Stadium. The commute to the Rectorado on Avenida de San Fernando was about 30 minutes by bus (#33). I would have preferred to stay closer to the university (at walking distance), perhaps in Triana, Los Remedios, or in the Santa Cruz neighborhood.

Best place for lunch is Taberna Los Coloniales, Plaza San Pedro, great food great atomsphere, very cheap. The best spot breakfast in Seville, and possibly Europe (excluding France who have breakfast monopolised) is Taberna de los Terceros, Plaza de los Terceros, Tostada con tomate y aceite, genial. Both of these are near the Plaza de la Encarnacion which is the best area to live in.
