Personal comments
As I came here it was sometimes difficult to follow the courses. But now, after 4 months only, I've no longer problems in understanding neither the profs (mostly) nor the students. I'm even able to follow class-discussions! :) I love to learn slang words and expressions; I already know a few!

Personal spending habits
Because when I'm home I don't travel as much. When I go out I rather choose the places with lower entrance costs, here it's quite expensive. Everything (food, drinks, ..) is more expensive than in my home country. Well, the thing with the phone...

Personal comments
Hmm, choose your phone operator well... And be aware that there is always enough money on your bank account to cover recent costs; if there is too little money, the fees are incredible!! (france telecom, electricity, mobile, ..)

Course recommendations
Inform yourself as well as possible before chosing one. Ask former students about there opinion. Marketing courses (in international and frech-classes) are very good!

Final comments
buy/collect the "petit paumÚ", very practical guide in all fields (activities). buy campus-card for public transport. open french bank-account, buy mobile phone. get "carte 12-25" for travelling reductions. and:! be prepared for looong waiting lines and very complicate bureaucracy! last but not least: be prepared for a fantastic stay with fun, friends, sports, bear ... and studies..

"Ambassade"- if u like house music in nice, cosy athmosphere. "Ayer's rock" - a MUST for exchange students! "Down Under" - the same as above, but more for "drinking before dancing" in another location. "Mi Barrio" - viva la vida latina!!

Housing
Type of housing: in a residence
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Because I now know that it's not impossible to find a nice appartement in the city (lyon) which doesn't cost a fortune, and I'd really love to have more space, especially a seperate room for my kitchen(ette)!

Personal comments
The room is quite small, but it's ok. Once you get to know some people in the residence it's lovely, because you can join them but retourn to your privacy whenever you want. Beside that, it's not too easy to get to know people here (everybody having his own studio). It's disappointing that the electricity cost is not included in the rent, which is already quite high. Aditionally, you have to care yourself about telefon-line and internet, or TV. This costs are extra, as well. But generally, there are residences which are worse, and better as well, naturally; but "ca va", it's possible to live here ;).
