So you’ve chosen to study Spanish in Spain. Lucky you! There is
so much to do, where should you start? Read our tips for studying abroad in
Spain to find out!
- Punto de Informacion: Every city and town has a punto de informacion
(information center) where you can find maps, museum info, bus and train
schedules. Guidebooks are excellent resources to get some of this information
in advance, as well.
- Transportation: Spain has one of the most modern and efficient train transportation
systems (www.renfe.es), and it is the best
way to travel between cities. But, if you want to get around within the big
cities, you can always take the subway in Madrid or Barcelona.
- Food: You should try the typical Spanish dishes: paella, jamon
Serrano, tortilla de patata, gazpacho…the list goes on!
- Entertainment: Catch a flamenco show in a theatre, or see an equally
enthralling dance by the street performers in the plaza. Endless museums of art
as well as examples of Roman, Moorish, Gallic and other architecture abound.
Spain is known for a vibrant nightlife, which for the most courageous can last
well into the next day!
