I think so.
What you describe sounds typical of an el-cheapo Chinese tablet
. They often don't have much internal storage, which tends to fill up rather quickly, and I'm sure this is what it's referring to as "SD-card" or internal memory card. The best thing you can do here is put an SD-card in the slot, external memory card, and try and move apps and other content to it, and clear out any caches as well, like the internet browser.
The problematic WiFi is a frequent issue with cheapo tablets as well. You could try resetting your WiFi router, that can sometimes clear any connectivity issues. See if it works on open public WiFi. Unfortunately if you can't return it, i.e. going back to Spain, you'll have to put up with it.
You migh want to read the forum sticky about these things...

BTW is your tablet the "Sharpixels" you got listed in your profile > devices? I just Google'd "Sharpixels" and the second hit was another forum post, "I bought a sharpixels tablet on Tenerife
", but apparently this one has bricked itself. Which is another all too frequent problem with cheapo off-brand Android tablets.
