Personal comments
The best way to learn a language is to live in that country. I initially was afraid to speak german - english gets you by almost anywhere - but then once I got used to making mistakes and speaking german, I found a huge difference in the quality of my stay in Munich. It has given me more confidence in myself and i don't think twice of having to relocate myself around the world.

Final comments
Its always important to remember that you are in the host country to get an insight into a culture and society thats different to yours. Therefore, don't expect things to be as 'they are at home' learn to accept the good and the BAD. You must be open-minded and sometimes very patient.

Housing
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Living out of the 'student sphere' its more difficult to meet other students especially if your're foriegn and are not yet fluent in the language of host country.
