Course recommendations
I enjoyed all of my courses because I was able to learn about Spanish history, semantics, sociology, and language through theatre, cinema, poetry, lectures and literature. However, I would like to study international business practices more in depth becase this is a field I am extremely interested in and possibly a future career path.

Personal comments
I enjoyed my classes because they were small and very interactive but I would like to have had more classes with Spanish students to hear more of their point of view and become more immersed in their educational system.

Personal spending habits
At home I lived with my parents, so accomodation and food for 'free'. Telephone because I had to stay in contact with friends etc. Nightlife because I travelled within Spain to see some more than only Alicante. Nightlife, was cheaper because the prices are lower in Spain, although I partied more than I would do at my home University.

Personal comments
The lectures and support were all in spanish and my progress was notable in a short period of time - my understanding improved dramatically although i still had problems with responding in some situations - this was more a confidence issue than ability! On reflection I would just jump in with both feet - make the mistakes and be corrected!

Cisne bar - an amazing tapas bar - go for the cisne tapeo Do go to the shopping centres - plaza mar 2, San vicente etc - they are so much more convenient than the shopping street and air conditioned/ heated throughout The cinema - excellent for testing your language skills there are 2 castles in the city, one is the most obvious - and has to be climbed as a matter of principal.....the other is not so obvious - just a few walls - but behind these there is quite a significant sports and leisure development that is worth a look!
