Before I i had arrived to Spain i had studied spanish for 4 years at secondary school, but as it already had been 5 years after graduating from secondary school i didnt remember a lot of it. But day by day i got to remember more and more from what i had learnt before. The hardes part of the studies in Spain was taking notes at lectures. Cause, as the whole world probably knows Spanish are one of the most fast speaking ones : )). But if u want to improve your spanish Vigo is probably one of the most suitable place for that as people dont really speak english there although a lot of the times they do understand it.

At times the opportunities to speak in Spanish at the University of Vigo were scarce. This is because so many of the Erasmus students spoke English also. It is easy to rely on English rather than to put yourself in an uncomfortable situation. Also, the fact that Vigo is in Galcia needs to be addressed. Many people speak Gallego and all of the University materials are printed in it. When choosing your classes, you must be sure to get classes instructed in Spanish.
