    i'm going to learn spanish in spain in a couple of weeks however i don't know whether to stay with a host family or student flat

    which would you think will be better i will need to make a decision by today so i can book it.

    considerations:
    student flat is cheaper and i don't have that much money
    I would like to meet alot of people
    student flat comes with no meals host family do
    i will get the best out of living with a host family culturally and with the language
    i'm worried about the rules they will have in the house because i would like to go out at nights etc etc

    Perhaps you should do some research on both (Google it!), see what people have to say about their experiences with either - see if they met a lot of people, etc. Get a general feel for both. I, personally, prefer the thought of host families. Although being in a dorm sounds fun and like you meet a lot of nice people, it also sounds like they're not that clean - people not cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen!! Ahhhh, the thought pains me. Ha ha. Regarding a host family, you get to learn far more about culture and experience the language more (possibly), but you may not like your host family. These seem to be common thoughts, from what I've read (but I haven't read much and none of the places were located in Spain either, which may make a difference). Good luck, I hope you enjoy Spain! x
