Personal recommendation
Beautiful city, good uni, but there are other good unis in France with fewer anglophones about. I was lucky, but it's really difficult making French friends. They're not generally impressed with Brits and Yanks - and it's easy to see why.

Final comments
Please try and live with a francophone - it makes your life so much easier. Try and get there early, round June to look for somewhere to live - housing is scarce. Beware of dodgy landlords. Southerners are notorious in France for swindling.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
The best way to live with native speakers and integrate yourself in the culture - my French came on in leaps and bounds.

Personal comments
Campus accommodation is dire - there is very little security. Aix has a high rate of violence towards women on campus. Plus it is incredibly dirty, although very cheap. I was very lucky and lived in a house with my landlady and a French student. We got on well, and I had a ready-made network of French friends, thanks to my flatmate.

Personal comments
In the university the students spoke English, but outside the school you had to know enough to get around. Try speaking their language first, and they'll work with you-they thinks its rude for americans to go over there and speak English expecting everyone to know what you're saying (and even if they know English they'll pretend they don't until you try to speak the language).

Personal comments
More interaction with teachers, our tutor had 1 office hour a week and that was when we were in class anyway. Classrooms were too small students often got turned away from Language class. More explanations would have been helpful as the ERASMUS students were at different levels.

Course recommendations
If you do either German or Portuguese, the courses are fantastic. Advanced Portuguese teaching excellent and the politics course very interesting. Take advantage of the History/Politics/Culture module laid on for Erasmus students. Fantastic.
