If by ´´Spanish keyboard´´ you are referrring to what I am typing this on now....not so very different from a UK one...a few more letters and slightly different functions but basically if you can use one it is (relatively) easy to switch to the other.......been here 10 years now and the following is genuine advice...
as regards accommodation..afraid you have left it too late,there are large waiting lists and very very few available properties since the recession ended last year..most are now up for sale (at prices at least double what they would have fetched 12 to 18 months ago)...and long -term lets are like ´´rocking-horse poo´´ (never ever found any of that either
) and what there is are asking stupidly high rental prices
.jobs..unemployment still running locally at around 30% mark..but you have a skill(beautician) which you could use as self-employed (unfortunately it is not cheap to go down this road and needs a goodly amount of ´´fall-back´´ money in the bank should it not work)..... working for Brit/irish bars is the usual way to go,,BUT have to say if you find a good employer (and these are also rare but there are a few) stick with them...a lot use you and dump you when the money coming in gets lower
learning Spanish is good...If only the locals spoke Castillian rather than the colloquial Canarian version (more akin to South American rather than classic Castillian Spanish...but they will understand you..its just whether you will understand them )
On the plus side its great for younger (less than teenage) kids ,,however, now being the parent of a hormonal, grumpy, variety of this teenage species who states ..´´.it´s rubbish..nothing to do..nowhere to go..BORING !!.´´...and she is bilingual but all her friends say the same
Primary state schools are usually good...HOWEVER the less said about secondary state education ...the better
Don´t let my honesty put you off...it is the reality but still in my opinion a better life here than other countries....but very hard work and very little leisure time if you have to work to live (average hours are around 50 to 60+ hours a week just to earn a slightly below average wage)
¡ Buena suerte!
