Personal comments
Before my study stay I didn`t know anything about Dutch language. I had opportunity to learn this language, but I didn`t take a chance, because firstly I had a bit problem with communication in English. But at the end of my stay I learned some basic words from Dutch and of course I did great improving in English. Recently I am going to study to Belgium(Flemish part), so if I will have a chance to attend Dutch course, I want to take this.

Housing
Type of housing: A room exchange
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why?
I am not so exacting on a place, but there must be a washbasin in a bedroom, energy-like heating, electricity and in the kitchen, which can be shared must be a gas and it should be fully equipd.Shower and toillet should be available. But this is for short stay, for longer stay I would like to live in a fully equiped flat.
