España durante el verano

El proximo verano voy a ir a Barcelona, voy a vivir aquí durante tres semanas para estudiar español. Mi pregunta es, creemos que es dificíl que encontrar nuevos personas? Son los españoles simpaticás y es fácil para conseguo amigos?

I'm sorry that my spanish isn't very good, but I'd be happy if you corrected if you saw something wrong..

Corrected your message.

I've never been to Spain, but I suppose the people are friendly. We have a couple of friendly Spaniards who contribute to the forums!

Bare in mind that Barcelona is in Catalonia, and the Catalán language is widely spoken there. Catalán is different from Castillian which is the language we call Spanish. Castillian is nevertheless widely spoken in Barcelona like English is widely spoken in Montreal. Barcelona really isn't a whole lot like the romantic image presented in that Woody Allen movie. If you're friendly and willing to communicate, you'll make friends. If you're going to be with other English-speaking students you definitely will bond with them.

Barcelona (Barna, BCN) is not the friendliest spot in Sp. It's a bit like Shanghai in China, a city with a somehow different story and often quarreling with the capital. However, they are friendly, of course. Life is a 30% cheaper in Andalusia than in Barna. A catalan MUST be able to talk spanish by law, if they pretend they can't they are teasing you.

Jessica, I believe you can find most of those words in a dictionary. The conjugated verbs won't be there, but you've studied Spanish long enough to be able to guess the infinitive for most of them.
Give it a try. Post your translation efforts here and we'll fill in the gaps. Te gusta la tarea. It'll be fun!
