Personal comments
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.

Personal comments
The list of possible appartments to choose from was provided by the university, but we had to searxh independently for our appartments. It was a bit uncomfortable as we had to pay for staying at a hotel after our arrival untill we found the right appartment to stay in but on the other hand it was a experience helping to us to learn how to manage things on our own.
