Hello! I'm off to Madrid at the end of May. I figure now is a good time to start thinking about what I'll want to bring, what to leave at home, and most importantly, what I should try to get before I go. I'll be there for 3 weeks on a study abroad program, with friends my age (and a spanish teacher), so to a certain extent I can rely on them for some things, such as using a computer. Unfortunately, I don't know much Spanish... so I need some advice on learning it fast. I got through Spanish 1 in elementary school, and again in high school, so I have a moderately good foundation. Does anyone have any suggestions for a book or two I should pick up to learn it fast? I have an old camera, an even older iPod, and some money in the bank. Is there anywhere that I should make it a point to bring, or to leave at home? Is there anywhere I should visit, or anywhere to avoid? How much money should I expect to use living there for 3 weeks? What else does an ignorant American going to Spain need to know? I know this is a lot, but I've never been out of the USA, and I'll take all advice I can get. I don't wanna end up in Spain and realize I forgot my toothbrush, so to speak.
