Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Because i'm accustom to living alone in a flat
Personal comments:
There is only one person in charge and she is simply swamped with all the work. Furthermore we had to pay 5 rental fees for 4 months + our rental fee was far over market price. However the flat was ok and it saved me a lot of time and worries.

Overall
Language of instruction: French
Was learning French a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my French
How much did you improve your French?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
The Quebecois accent is ver different to the Parisian french you get taught in schools. At the beginning it can be a shock but after a coupls of weeks you get used to it. There is plenty of opportunity to improve, but if you are really stuck, you can always talk english.
