Notice: I'm a 25-year-old PhD student from Poland. I need a place to stay during the 5th International Symposium on Bilingualism taking place in Barcelona in March. I will be staying from 19 till 24 March. I'm not demanding at all, rather accustomed to basic conditions. In fact, I'll spend 90% of the day-time in the town or at the university.
