I wish I had known...
I wish I would have had a better idea of what to pack. If someone could have told me what day-to-day life was like, it would have been helpful.

I wasn't in the highest levels where all my classes were at the university, but they make a conscious effort to help you improve your language skills no matter what level you start from.

Only pack half of what you think you need, except skivvies. Take VISA and MASTERCARD, because VISA isn't as popular in Switzerland and Italy. If you plan to travel on weekends (which is always the best way to spend a weekend), get the Let's Go book for the country. Take a journal and record EVERYTHING. You will be so glad you did. Don't forget to keep in touch with all the people you meet. Keep their names and addresses in your journal.

I was a bit disappointed by the choice of courses in Lettres Modernes - it wasn't bigger than at Munich university. Also disappointing: teaching style. Not much interaction except in the classes by native English/ American speakers

Enjoy the sports activities at they've got a lot to do and all for free (even paragliding!) Go to the CAF as early as possible. But the people at university are VERY helpful, it's very well organised.

Thanks to the geographic position and to the good transport connexions you could reach easily Paris and Lyon. My advice is also to discover the historic or naturalistic places in the region of Burgundy.

I did a lot of research so I wasn't to suprised. Check train times before booking your plane ticket!!!! I had to camp out in a train station for awhile because I didn't check train times.

I liked it a lot. Try to go during the year when the locals actually go to school. The school is only used for international students during the summer. I would have learned a lot more during the school year.

Take extra money. My plane ticket was about $1250, Tution and Room about $1000, not bad! Expect to spend more than you think on food. Eat the crapes downtown, they were amazing!

Have fun if you go. Travel by plane when you can - sometimes it's cheaper than by train.

I liked the University but the international students who are just studying the language are very isolated from the other french students.

Look for cheap travel deals....especially for ones to and around England and Ireland. i think...www.buzzaway.fr has really good flight deals to london. Participate in the sports on campus (suaps) you can go iceskating, skiing, etc for really cheap and meet french students.
