Hi, we bought a house in Villanueva de Tapia in May this year. We’re using it as a holiday home just now and plan to retire there in 2022. Until we retire, we’re trying to get over as much as we can...

Re: Simple SetUp Home WiFi in Barcelona - Advice Needed

Re: Learning Spanish

I studied Spanish at university in the early 80s and then, towards the end of the 90s, spent a short period of time in South America teaching English........ I was able to speak Spanish much better...

Re: Eurona

Hi Lincoln

Thanks for that. There seem to be a few shops in and around Málaga and, although we’re a little bit of a drive away, it probably makes sense to arrange things with someone face-to-face...

Eurona

Hi, we’ve been on the websites of various providers over the past week or so and have also been looking at posts related to wifi/internet/tv on the forum.

We’ve put the postcode in and neither...

Re: NIE - is it a card or a piece of paper?

Hi Snikpoh

I see you’re “retired and loving it” and I’m a little bit jealous as we’re still doing the daily slog for another few years yet!

We’re at the stage of having had an offer accepted...

Hi, thanks for both the replies......... it may be that I'm getting confused with the residence card. I guess we should buy wallets for the passports and NIE sheet otherwise who knows how tatty...

Re: Bad at languages

Hi there

You’re probably not “bad” at languages (you seem pretty good with English!); you’re just not used to hearing and speaking Spanish....... and I’m genuinely not trying to be facetious here....

NIE - is it a card or a piece of paper?

Hi there

We’re in the process of obtaining our NIE (lawyer is dealing with it via a Power of Attorney). I’ve read on a few sites that it’s a piece of paper that you need to use along with your...

Re: Getting a survey

Thanks, Kieron. I’m glad I started this thread as I’d been thinking that an established, solidly built house that’s part of a terrace would throw up fewer issues than something newer. But a few...

Re: First Posts, HELP! WHAT DO I DO? etc. etc.

Hi lurchio

I kinda get your point but, as one of the other posters says, the search facility isn’t always straightforward. I came across this thread, for example, whilst searching for “Andalucía”....

Re: Spanish Language Apps

I did Rosetta Stone (the £199 one) and found it to be very useful, but I think you’d probably have to have a basic grounding in Spanish. I taught English in Ecuador once upon a time - I was by no...

Re: Getting a survey

That sounds lovely! I think if we were moving full-time then we might have opted for something a bit further north or nearer the coast. We’re working here until late 2022 and it’ll just initially be...
