it take a while to master it. i had studied french for 10years before going to paris and was amazed at how much i didnt understand. the accents and speed of speech was something i wasnt used to. however i made french friends which helped immensly without them i doubt my standards would have improved so much.

apply for caf, you do it on line at www.caf.fr. it is a reduction for student on rent. youy must have your carte de sejour and a contract with your name on to do it but its definately worth the hassle. tribal cafe does free food 4 nights a week moules frites on weds and thurs, cous cous and chicken on fri and sat. you have to buy a drink but prices (for paris) are v reasonable, 5 euros for a very strong spirit and mixer and 3 euros for a pint. its at metro chateau d'eau in passage d'ecureuil (or something like that just keep taking a right turns until you get to the road which has the mini arc de triomphe and its a little passage to the right off there. get there by eight to get a seat though with free food around it gets rammed.

Course recommendations
registration is a nightmare! go up to someone and demand that they help you otherwise you end up subscribed to nothing and nobody will really care. stand up for your self and you will get there! the film courses are good here and the erasmus courses provided by the uni are fun but apart from the grammar courses are hard to pass! also you are required to get a sheet signed by every teacher that you had during the year, but they dont tell you until the end of the year so my advice is to go ti the erasmus coordinator (third floor at censier building) at the end of the first semesterto ask for the sheet and get all signatures in class because you wont find your teachers outside the classroom.

I wish I had known...
watch inthe metro pickpockets are everywhere! men are persistant they will try and pick you up everywhere, just look and the ground or ignore them and they soon get bored. museums are free the 1st sunday of every month. for the metro but a carte imagine r it lasts a year but is worth the money you can go anywhere in paris with it at any time. if you like the cinema but a monthly cinema pass is much cheaper. make the most of your time there is so much to do and the time just goes really quickly.

Personal recommendation
if you have any queries for the teachers ask them in class because you wont find them otherwise. dont take deug 2 classes as they r generally harder even though not same prestige as license, the deug 2 classes are used top ween out the good students from the not so great.

Final comments
if you plan to take eurostar buy a 12-25 card it gets you a huge reduction. dont waste a second there is so much to do. its difficult to make contact with french students as they keep uni and home life separate so once you get a number from one of the m dont be afraid to call them.
