    hey guys, i've been accepted to study spanish in September and was wondering if anybody had any good ideas as to how i could improve my spanish/gain any sort of extra qualifications during the summer. i find that it helps to speak or at least think in spanish everyday. im not quite sure how to spend my summer. any suggestions of courses or anything i could do? thanks

    Travel there?

    I worked in Barcelona as a waiter for three months before going to university to study Spanish. I regret going to Barcelona though as I spoke Catalan 80% of the time.

    well i've been looking at teaching english in spain for a few months during the summer. there's loads of websites that you can do it through. you live with a spanish family and teach their children english for 15 hours a week. of all the reviews most people have said that living with a spanish family has helped them no end in learning spanish and integrating into spanish society. what part of spain did you live in?
