Julia has not had any problems so far. She is sharing a flat just by the faculty with a German fellow student from the German group and with a bank employee, a Hungarian woman, which allows her to practise 3 languages, or 4, because the German girl also speaks Spanish. In her group there is only one Spanish girl who is from Catalonia, and it seems they get along just fine and without problems, apart from the minor setbacks at the beginning, but Julia now knows where almost everything is and she has contacted other Spaniards, they even gather on Sundays to eat together, well… If she send any pictures I will forward them to you. Thank you for your interest and let us know if we can help with anything… we frequently speak to her.
Kind regards. M. Ángeles and Julio, parents of Julia, Madrid, 09.09.2010
