The most you learn from the spanish people, but there were a lot of foreigners which could speake very well, too.At the beginning it was very hard to understand the sevillians and even now itエs nearly impossible when they talk quickly. At the beginnig it was a little bit difficult to get to know native speakers, but when knew some it was great and I learned a lot of the life and the language

Course recommendations
The andaluz accent is very hard at the beginning and even later on. So choose a teacher you can understand. The course El Mundo Actual y relato hispanoamericano

The university offers a pool of accomodations, but very often they are already occupied when you call there. But there are lots of possibilites to share a flat in the centre of Seville or nearby (15000-38000 Pesetas/month)
