Personal comments
I went to France, but it was supposed to study in English, but once there, I decided to do in French, because they said that was pretty easy to learn the basics, and I had French lessons, on my 8th and 9th grade, I didn't remember nothing, but I decided to take the risk, on order to learn one more language. But in the end my only French words, were the ones that I learn on the classes, I had facilities on understating French because some words are similar to my native language, Portuguese, so I didn't effort the maximum as I could. Out of the classes I spook English, with, mostly, my Australians friends. Basically I learned the basic French, and improve my English.

The communication with the appartment renting bureau was poor and the contact with the 'gardien' not that great since neither spoke any english or even tried to! Even though the majority of the inhabitants was foreign! But reflecting on the situation.. this made me more eager to learn the language, which was why I came to study in France.

To have better management. Some teachers are subjective. It would be better if teachers try to assesed students fairly towards students from every country.

I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
Food has TVA at 20.5% Accomodation is expensive because of lack of private accomodation. Nightlife is expensive because of the drinks. It is cheaper at supermarket. Travel on buses and trains fast, clean and efficient! Overall, France is expensive because of taxes.

The company who rented Euro Residence were very strict and inclined to over react if you had a party charging you for any cleaning that was needed after it! Other than that, the residence was great. You can choose from studio rooms, two or three bedroom flats.
