I was pretty good in English before going to UCD, but after it was much better because I had a contact with a language all the time while speaking, reading books in this language, watching movies and listening to radio.

The housing office wasn't very helpful and didn't return my deposit with no explanation! They could do a better job but overall it is a good accommodation choice.
