At beginning I had a lot of problems because I could not speak frenc at all and the French are not so experienced with english. I was lucky to have some good french friends who can speak good english. When I left the country, I could communicate with local citizens.

Personal spending habits
I spent more for the food because I didn't always have the opportunity to use the kitchen so I had to eat somewhere outside. I spent more for the nightlife because I met so many people that I had to go out almost every night, even only for a few hours. The housing was really less expensive than in Italy and I was calling only my parents and friends in Italy: I was meeting my friends there in the campus or at the university.

Personal recommendation
To have a good social life, you should go to the cafe in the basement and to the parties organized by the business school. Abot the academic life, I cannot say a lot because I was going to a Master program with phd students, so I had different classes than the other Erasmus and Socrates students.

Final comments
Everyone should have an experience abroad, both for academic, cultural and sociloa reasons. Strasborg isn't likely the tipical "Erasumus" partying city, but I had perfect time there anyway.

The best place for students and foreigners was "Le trou", a small pub with revivfal music which was always crowed. Tha "P.M.G.", a small square characterized by small cafes where it's good to spend huge afternoon and evenings, mainly duirng springtime. ""Club Seven" was the place to dance house music. It's a little bit poshy and you need to be well dressed. During the summer, it's perfect to go to the swimmingpool. It's in Germany but far away from Starsbourg only 3-4 km.

Personal comments
It was nothing special but I liked it because it was hosting a lot of nice guys. I didn't care too much about the size of the room or how many people were using the same kitchen because I was going to be there only for a few months and I could stand not perfect conditions for that period.
