I was lucky because I already spoke a pretty good English, so I did not have some problems at the beginning like someone experienced. Swedish people both inside and outside the university environment speaks an eccellent English. After my stay in Sweden my fluency improved a lot and my vocabulary has become much larger.

Personal spending habits
Less for the telephone because all friends lived in the same building, so there was actually no need to call each other, it was easy to come by each other rooms. Accomodation was more expensive because in my home country I live home, and on average Stockholm accomodations are more expensive than in Rome. Nightlife is more expensive expecially because alcol in Sweden is taxed by the state and this makes pubs, restaurants and bars more expensive.

I wish I had known...
To have more information about not only English - taught courses for Erasmus students but also have information about the courses in Swedish language, because the textbook and references are in English, so this imply the possibility of making extra courses if the relative teachers are willing to examine you in English (like it happened to me).

Personal recommendation
It is a wonderful place to have a good personal experience abroad, meeting people from all Europe and even outside Europe. In my case was not the perfect choice for studies because I come from Economics and Finance and there I studied more Business studies, which was ok anyway for me to complete parts of my degree.

Final comments
An experience that I suggest to anyone, the best opportunity we have during our academic studies. Once there it is compulsory to travel as much as possible because for students it's cheap and the places are amazing. Wonderful travels to Lappland, North Cape, Fiords (Norwey) and the Lake District in Finland. Easy connection also to Estonia and Russia.

The accomodation is basically what a student needs. A 16 metres square room with a very good and confortable bathroom and a well working kitchen.
