Seeing things retrospectively, everything was great. Still, any beginning is difficult, especially when you are in a foreign country and you are faced with new, different behaviors. Thus, although my knowledge of French language was significant, the first days spent in Lille seemed everlasting. This tendency would become even more obvious when communicating with native speakers of French, so with people that couldn't possibly understand your uneasiness in expressing yourself in their language. But, as I was living on a campus, with students from all over Europe, the uneasiness had soon melted away; the desire to communicate and friendship tied us more closely than the language barrier could ever separate us. Consequently, I soon started to act naturally in any situation, to be myself, both in communicating with teachers and administrative staff, as well as with friends and other students.

The more you go out with others erasmussers the worse you're language gets. you have to get in touch with students who speak the language properly and not erasmus students

My overall language and communication experience was pretty bad. I regret that I went abroad with 3 classmates instead of by myself, because then you tend to speak your home language all the time. There wasnt really social communication in the host language with the host students, it was very hard to get in contact with them: they didnt really want to slow down when they spoke too fast or explain something in another way. Overall: my writing has improved though, because you learn more vocabulary. But I still don't really speak the host language.
