The good thing about this university that you are going to study using 2 languages. First 2 years of your studies you are going to have only in English language and take some German courses, then after 2 years of English language and learning German, you have to pass German language test and then study mostly in German. So in the end you are going to speak fluently in English and German. And also, you have right to learng other languages like Spanish, French, Italien, Skandinavian languages and so on. So it is VERY good for you. Not every university got this kind of things.

I think that it is necessary to live with local people (in the same flat). It is far better to improve. At the beginning of the stay, the problem is to stay with other erasmus students who dont speak german.These stay only one semester and have english courses. Overall, german is really hard, but I really enjoyed my experience in the former east germany: it was culturally exciting. It's been 4 months that I came back to france, and I still have contact with my german (and other) friends.

The thing is that I lived on polish side of the river Oder and studied on german side. This unique opportunity gave me good language skills in mostly german language since all my courses were provided in german as well as the exams. But I also learned a lot of polish language and culture, enjoyed it a lot and saw a potential interaction between these two cuntries. I passed border of the european union every day on my way to school.It was a very exciting and valuable excpirience.
