Why?
There is nothing better than living with a host family to true out new language. Also there are other benefits to living in a host family, like use of media (movies, books) that one would have to purchase otherwise. It is truly a moment to discover how you behave in relation to others.

Because the family was assigned to me, I did not know them previously. It would have helped if I had had a list of all the rules beforehand. I was restricted to cooking only from the microwave if my host mom was not home, and I could not have friends over.

I was pretty horrified on arrival at the state of my room and the halls in general. However, having lived there for a year now, it is much better and cheaper than living in a private flat. It can get lonely so its good to be in halls as you'll meet people really easier. From a language point of view living with a family would be in my point of view, the best way to improve your French.

Liviong with a family, allowed be have an insider's view on French family life. surely, I only was able to see a small speck of what it is like to be part of a Frecnh family, but nonetheless this experience was priceless, and I will remember it forever. As well, living with a family helps a lot to learn a language.

I didn't really like the look of the halls of residence, however, university accommodation was probably a better way to meet people, not a lot of French people though.

If you live with local flatmates in the same appartment, you learn the language / culture very easily. It helped me to better understand French culture.

Housing wasn't provided by the university, so we had to find our own apartments. The search was troublesome at first because of the language barrier, but in the end, I found a great place.
