Before my study experience I had no idea of what was Spanish but I can assure you taht after 4 months I could understand almost everything, on TV, at university, etc. But what's more important is that I could speak very well after only 6 months!

Course recommendations
You have to choose it before you arrive because the spanish system is quite different from Italian, you have to choose the exam you are taking the week after you arrive in Alicante, that's 4 months before of the exam!!!!

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
It's a choice of independence. I liked I could decide what to do in every moment and because with my house mates we developed a beautiful relationship, we're still in touch although they live in spain and Portugal.

I could chose their help, and I can say that Alicante has a great reception for international students, but I made it by myself so I can't say mora than I've done.
