KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Corridor; own room, share kitchen and lounge..
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Corridor
Why? Most viable choise and allows for great socialisation with other exchange students and Swedes.
Personal comments:
The accomodation is great. You get your own rather large room with bathroom; shower, toilet and sink. Share lounge room and kitchen with six other non-exchange students (usually).

Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.

How much did you improve your Swedish?

Personal comments:
In the beginning I wasn't really sure if I want to learn swedish at all, but I realized that if I really want to get to know some swedes I would have to. don't get me wrong, they nearly all speak perfect english, but when you go out with them they might not want to speak english with their friends all the time. And I want to know what they say to them anyway ;)
