Hello everyone, My name is Brian (Gomez / also Irish) & her's is Sharon (Vera / English -- think of Coronation Street :-)). House on market...some serious interest...hope to be there in the very near future. Rental first before purchase. Retiring :-).  Just wanted to say hello. Looking for inland location....more mountains than sea & definitely not tourist traps. Provinces Malaga, Granada & Alicante spring to mind but are open to all locations. Find this media stuff a bit of a bind! Any suggestions for locations (and rentals) for our first dip in Spain would be most appreciated. Many Thanks

Good morning
My name is Andrea. I am almost 59 years old a woman who is hoping to be living in Spain by my 60th birthday.
I am in the process of putting my flat on the market here in Porthcawl South Wales UK.
I have lived/was born in England for 29 years and migrated to Wales where I have lived also for 29 years.
I know this is a huge step however I am determined.
I could do with general ideas on areas in the Valencia/Andalusia areas.
I do not want to live on the coast would rather immerse myself in the traditional old school Spanish way of life.
Am trying to learn Spanish and will be relocating with just my two cat's.
Thanks for reading ,;any answers positive or not so positive will help.

Hi,

Names Andrew. Been living in Spain since around 1998. In a happy relationship with three lovely daughters.
Thought this site would be a good place to meet people and hopefully learn something new! Also might be able to offer some interesting insight into how some things work in the lovely land of Andalucia

Hi Everyone,

My name is Natasha from Glasgow and I recently moved to Alicante. I secured a contract business analyst job at the European Union Office and left the cold and wet weather for a better lifestyle. Who doesn´t love sunshine, tapas, wine, beach walks and a healthy more active lifestyle outdoors! It was a no brainer for me.
I started Spanish classes but after 4 weeks of learning the language only in Spanish with zero translation I found it diffcult to understand the context of things. The class was very full of students all at varying levels so now I am frustrated and no further forward. So any good Spanish classes anyone can recommend or language swap programs I would be keen to know. I have made some friends in the office however looking to grow my network. Nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone, my name is David and I am from York, England. I moved to Spain at the beginning of October and am living in Playa de San Juan, Alicante. I am retired and decided that being retired in Spain with the sunshine and outdoor lifestyle was preferable to grey, wet England. My things, including my exercise bike, have not arrived from England yet & so I have started running again and really enjoy running on the promenade next to the sea. A bit different to running around the streets of York! I did two Spanish language courses at a college in York before coming over but I would welcome the opportunity to continue learning if anyone knows of any courses in this area.

My name is Ieva and I live in Spain, Murcia region. Originally I'm from Latvia, for 5 years lived in UK and now I'm here in the sunny Spain.
For a year we were having holiday type lifestyle. Now I'm looking for some/ any job as I'm getting bored. I am learning Spanish which is my fifth language that I speak.
I want to know more about other peoples' life and work experiences over here in Spain. And, I want to share our experience as we were badly advised in some circumstances.
That's it for now!!!
Have a good day everybody!

Hi
My name is Tarik but everyone calls me Rick.
We moved to Spain in November last year and I'm living in condado de alhama,very nice place and I speak very little Spanish anyway we moved here because my dad left a lot of property behind in Rabat morocco when he passed away,so that's why we decided to move close to morocco and moving from Arizona was not easy.
I'm an Irish American citizen so it was kind of easy to live in spain.
I'm looking for full time work as a barmen or shuttle driver just to hold me over until I get my inheritance.
                      Thank you

Hi everyone,

My friend and I recently graduated the International Business and Languages bachelors' curriculum at the Avans University of Applied Sciences in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. Here, we studied different forms and aspects of marketing, sales, law as well as English, French, German and Spanish. As part of our curriculum, we had to study abroad for a semester and we chose to do that at the UMA university in Málaga. We had a terrific time there. This is why we would like to continue living there, and therefore we are looking for a temporary job in the communication or marketing area. We are available from December until June 2018. Does anyone have any interesting companies, connections or other tips for us? Thank you very much in advance!

Welcome to the foro,
How many languages can you speak?
Here is a guide to the formalities in Setting up a business in Spain.
http://www.advoco.es/most-requested-ser … spain.html
Got no idea on how the business would go because there are so many offering this sort of work plus there are websites that allow a person to drag and drop page components to make a website.

I speak english, spanish and portugese.
