Some students didn't have at the beggining a good French level to attend classes. Maybe this should be improve by stimulating students to study more French language before

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Campus is a little far from Paris itself, so living in Paris in an appartment would be more comfortable.
