I wish I had known...
There are so man little things of daily life that can be so time consumeing when having to find out on your own. The list would be too long, but with a little help from students who have been there before ... everything is manageable

Don't take the woman who is in charge of the exchange program too serious, because she does that perfectly on her own;-) There is lots to experience and to expend the mind. But takes a lot of research and self-motivation

Quote of my main professor after I just arrived in the country and just started my language course: " You don't speak my language ...you don't understand my culture! You don't understand my culture ... you can not do architecture in my country!" I guess that explains it all. I didn't expect my naitive language, but the international language of design ... ENGLISH? I just started to learn the local language, shall I know all the termenology straight away? On top of that did my uni not arrange a course. We found out about it by accident ... it happened at another uni. But just a few days before the lady in charge told us there wouldn't be one. So we missed the first 3 lessons.
