I'd advise you to stay in a shared apartment. They are really nice, luxurious, big and comfortable. They are usually located in the Old Town, close to the school (no need to take public transport).

Go to Figueres - Dali's museum is great. Palau de la Musica is just around the corner from the school, but don't buy the tour, concerts are just few euros more.

If you speak English a little, it would be very helpful. In my class there were nine students with different nationalities. We went out together to have dinner and fun times. As we were elementary level, we communicated in English.

I want to come back to this school. There were fewer Japanese students than I expected. I saw only one more Japanese while I too a course.

I can only recommend the school, although its courses are a bit more expensive than the ones of other schools. The teachers work very hard and I've really learned a lot.
