I can't say it was easy in the beginning but after a while you can hear a diference and you start feeling better while speaking this foreign language.

I wish I knew before that you have examens and essays during the year. I'm not justed to that so in the beginning it was hard to adapt that habitat to work every day I bit for school

Personal recommendation
I think they have to talk to their profesores because some of them really don't like erasmus or foreign people. And I'm convinced we earn an equal treatment but they can try to understand that we have a rather hard time because of a new language

Final comments
In the beginning everything is a bit weird. The school seems a bit like a high school because of the many tasks you have to do but after a month of 2 you will feel like you have done this allways. When you go on erasmus you HAVE to travel and visit a lot of cities. This is a wonderful chance to discover not only the study where you study but also other cities and cultures
