Starting out in Sevilla (Seville)
I am planning on living in Spain for three months this Fall and have decided on Sevilla after touring there two years ago. I have never lived abroad before and was wondering if Sevilla or Madrid would be a better place to study Spanish. Another factor is ease of integration into both the local and expat population. Since my Spanish is probably at a mid-level to advanced beginner it may take a while to get at a conversational ability. I may decide to stay for a longer period of time after I retire.
From those expats on here is Sevilla a good place to live and learn Spanish?
I am also looking for a good laid back neighborhood in which to live close to the center but not too pricey. Thanks for reading.
