You are in contact with french people 24 hours a day, and that is the best way to learn a language. Spending time with exchange students from all over the world (speaking french, of course!) is also very useful.

Personal comments
You can get money from the French government to help you pay your rent. You have to go to the "caisse d'allocation familiales (CAF)" for that. At school they will certainly explain you what to do.

I wish I had known...
I think it would have been better to come for the first semester, when people still didn't know each other and groups wouldn't have been already made. That would have made everything much easier in the beginning

Personal comments
the school doesn't have a campus nor a student house. That's the only negative point. Despite that, it's quite easy to find an apartment and somebody to share it with, and the International Office is there to help, if any problem occurred
