Many students move to Paris during their year abroad, but unless you have accommodation organised by uni it's really hard to find a place. Can anyone suggest methods of finding somewhere or any websites they used?
I have been offered a teaching placement in Barcelona and I would really love to take it but I am worried that everyone there will speak Catalan, rather than Castilian Spanish. Is there any point moving to Barcelona to practice Spanish? Will it make my Spanish worse?
I am starting to plan my year abroad and am considering the various places I can go to. Are there any restrictions on which Spanish-speaking countries I can visit? Are there any that people would particularly recommend, or would advise that I avoid? I don't want to go anywhere too dangerous or expensive. Any help would be appreciated!
