Being an Erasmus student in the university of Almerìa was such a pleasure for me. It helped me to get to know people frim different countries and cultures as well as learning Spanish. However, it was hard for me to adapt with a new educational system . Still, if I have the chance to be an Erasmus student again, I will surely go for it.
