Course recommendations
take classes for foreigners and classes with spaniards. it makes all the difference to have them both and stay the whole year. its not worth it to stay one semester

Personal recommendation
Be prepared to buy your books at local bookstores. When I was there, there wasn't a "bookstore" on campus. Enjoy the cafe that's in the University. Great cafe con leche, tea, and snacks!!!!

Final comments
Have fun. The feeling of homesickness does go away. I'd definitely recommend staying a whole year. Make sure you have experiences of eating real Spanish food. That's something I missed out on a bit moving into an apartment. Luckily, one of my friends lived w/someone who was glad to have guests.....a few of us went over there for a full multi-course Spanish lunch quite a few times. When I was traveling over the Winter break, and bought souvenirs, I found it was helpful to mail some stuff directly home to the States from where I was (Athens).

Personal comments
Open an accout as soon as you arrive to avoid transfer charges from home. Bring money from home in cash or traveler's cheques as this also avoids charges. Always ask about possible charges, there are much more banking charges there than here.

Personal comments
I had studied Spanish in high school and college but was not sufficiently prepared to live in a Spanish-speaking country. When I arrived, I struggled for 3 months to understand people and muster the courage to speak. After that, it was much easier to learn the language and take the risk of speaking to people, despite making some mistakes. Taking classes in Spanish and living with Spaniards enabled me to become fluent in the language.

Personal comments
I had a great apartment, everything quite new and clean. Maybe the landlord could have been better, and there was also a lot of noise (I was in Calle Recaredo, a street with very much traffic and... AMBULANCES!), but it was only 5 to 10 minutes away from the centre, and just very nice to live in.
