Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Living in halls can feel slightly confined.
Personal comments:
Accommodation was well organised. I was given plenty of advice about insurance etc. I was glad however that I was not in halls, as they appeared to be of a poor standard.

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: Basic phrases
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
in the beginning it was very tiring to speak and listen to other language all day... It helps to have a handy dictionary in any situation, and not ever being embarassed to ask people to correct our pronunciation... It will help both to cope better!!!
