Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why? I had such a great time with my host family, that I've actually asked to stay with them for the second semester. They offer so much love and excitement. Plus, you're really forced to speak french all of the time and be apart of the culture.
Personal comments:
Staying with a host family has been a great experience and I would suggest anyone studying abroad to do the same. It's the best opportunity to get involved, learn about the culture, and improve speaking capabilities.
