Hi Brian, check out this web site:
It's plenty of info about Spanish schools in different cities and there are also forums if you wanna contact with penpals, language tandem and so on.
By the way, I'm from Castellón near to Valencia. I'd be glad to help you with your Spanish if you help me with my English in exchange. I speak quite fluent English but I need to improve it because I want to work in an English speaking country and also because I love traveling. The best way to learn an improve a language is real conversation ( I use Skype to talk online with people interested in learn Spanish and English) I belong to an European association that helps people from different countries to meet and exchange their knowledge about languages. So if you need something let me know and I'll help you if I can.
Hola. My name is Sarah Tilley and I work for Babylon Idiomas.
We offer reasonably priced Spanish courses in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia or Seville. You don't just have to stay in one city, you can combine studying in all of our schools and you will always follow the same curriculum.
With regards to the investment in a Spanish course, expect to pay in Madrid and Barcelona anywhere between 125 and 170 euro for good programs that offer you small groups, native teachers and good customer service. Learning a new language is one of the best investments you can make in your life and I assume you want to make every penny count . Enjoy your stay in Spain.
Babylon can also offer you accommodation in student flats or family stays. I can also recommend www.loquo.com as a good place to search for rooms or apartments in any major city in Spain.
Part time work is easy to find for European citizens, however if you need a work visa you may find this more difficult to obtain.
If you need any further information don't hesitate to contact me

Good luck with you search
