Personal comments
The dutch language resulted from the begining really dificult for me because it is a germanic language and I understand better the latin languages. This is the reason why I spoke and communicate most of the time in english, although I learned basic things in a lot of languages...including greek!. Is very nice to know similarities and differences of your own language in comparison with other languages.

Personal comments
It is perfectly organised. They ensure accomodation for all the foreigner students at low prices. The only disadvantage was the delay in repairs and the fact that the cleanning woman only came once a week or sometimes even less.
