In the country in general, I sometimes had difficulties with some of the slang, but as I continued to go out with the same people I learned the majority of it, and was not afraid to ask when I didn┤t understand something. I had a harder time in my courses asking questions, but understood more of the lecture because the professor would repeat everything two or three times. It happened that sometimes even the French students around me would miss somethings as a couple of the professors were from Africa with very strong accents.

Aix provided the perfect stage to develop french language skills to any desired Niveau. Really it just comes to putting in the effort. If you want to become fluent, you will with the right effort and persistence. If you want to socialize only with anglophones or with whatever your dialect is... dont expect to proress much. My recommendation would be to go out alot, speak with and socialize with Frenchies.

It was difficult to interact with local students though they were uninteressed in us foreigners. But if you live in a country for one semester, you learn the language in one way or the other.

I had to learn French, because the French are usually not proficient in English whatsoever. This was a great learning experiment, I couldn't just switch to English when I pleased.

Being in France really helped my language skills. Being surrounded by it makes it so much easier to pick up ideas that I had struggled with when being taught
