Don't think it will be a lot easier than at home, because it isn't :) Most of the Spanish or Hispanic literature classes are of a high level. On the other hand, don't worry if you make some language mistakes, professors allow you to use a dictionnary, and you can impress them if you speak/write good.

Visit Granada!! It really is a fantastic city, beautiful and alive! The Alhambra is the most beautiful building I have ever seen! Travel enough, but don't forget to explore Sevilla itself: it has so much to offer! Also, I repeat, really try to get to know local people, and definitely go to the Feria de Abril! You won't regret :)

Going to Seville is a chance of a lifetime I would recommend not missing. Seville is a beautiful city filled with lots of adventure and things to learn about. If you would like to get the feel of Spanish cultural, the city of Seville could be one of your best choices! Many people told me that the temperature year round was hot and to not worry about brining winter clothes. With that being true in the months of spring and summer, when first arriving in February and until March it rained almost every day and was very cold, almost reaching snow on some days. So make sure you come prepared for all seasons here in Seville!

My experience abroad has been a forgetful experience that has taught my more then I could have imagined. I can say that I have never learned so much in so little of a period of time. My classes abroad consist of small groups of people from all over the world, from Europe, Asia, Brazil to, and U.S in which we are constantly involved in an exchange of topics with mindsets from all over the world. Being a part of this exchange program I have been forced to step out of my comfort zone and express my thoughts and opinions in return learning so much about myself and others. I feel so lucky and fortunate to have been able to have this experience. I am earning full time college credits while greatly improving my Spanish language skills. Seville is a beloved city with many activities and things to do, which left me never bored or looking for something to do. Here in Seville, the people are very friendly and outgoing; within one week I have made a group of friends that will last for a lifetime. This study abroad experience I came to Seville as a tourist but after soaking up all of its culture has to offer I found out new things about myself I never even knew existed changing my image of a tourist, into a well known visitor, leaving nothing behind. It is with these experiences we find, that “ no matter who you are, or where you’re from, everybody has something to offer.”

My overall experience at the University wasn't great. I found that because it was so big and there were so many foreign students, the staff were generally unhelpful. I also found there were little efforts on the part of the University to integrate the foreign students with local students.

I loved Seville. The people were great and it was such a wonderful experience getting to know and be a part of a city and culture that is not my own. A good thing to keep in mind when going to Seville is that the people are very direct. They sometimes say things that would be considered too forward in many cultures. It is important not to mistake that for rudeness....it is just part of their culture.

Ban smoking from inside the school! Make sure there is someone at the school that English-speaking students can communicate with!

Pack your suitecase then take 1/2 of it out. Book hostels before going to another country/city. Always have someone with you when travelling and don't forget a map/dictionary. Be cautious of the currency exchange rate as you spend.

The best of the University is the building, but not all of the faculties are in there.The way of studing is quite oldschool, they don´t support independence.
