Best regions of Valencia to live in (12months) for a language assistant wanting a great, fun, social experience?

I think you'd be better off getting a Spanish sim, and just buying an unlocked phone... Dual SIM phones are fab, that's what I used on my YA and it saved the hassle of telling everyone about which number I was on when I came back for the holidays etc

What kind of jobs could I do for the summer in Spain?

Have a think about what you want to do as a career - or at least what you'd like to try out! Then contact Spanish companies in that industry. Apply speculatively - don't wait for a job post on a jobs board - just email the Spanish company with your CV and how you think you can help them. You...
