I found France quite bureaucratic which was complicated by the language differences. At university the course was half in French and half in English. Some courses were very difficult due to the technical vocabulary required. However I managed to survive the year!

I chose to go to France in the hopes of improving my level of French. When making friends with local French students it is very easy to not practice your friend do to the fact that most of the french students want to practice their english with you. You must force yourself into situations where there is no choice but to speak french.

French people don't like english in general but SKEMA students (global background) are completely at ease with it which makes interaction with local people really comfortable!

When I arrived to France I was really facing difficulties to express my feelings and ideas. Fortunately I was living with 3 native french students who really helped me to improve my french from basic to some slang even.

We have courses in French or English, and most of my classmates are French, so I need to practice a lot to interact with them, with my professor also, so I had big progress in sense of my language

I got a job in Monaco. Ended up speaking fluent french but my writing is lousy. I learned in the streets, talking to people, more than in the classroom.
