Americans are too proud and they don't like to talk to Asian students! But not all Asians cannot speak English and we are not so stupid as you think...

I wish I had known...
J'aurais aimé savoir les complications administratives qui peuvent se présenter lors de l'inscription à l'université. J'aurais pu être plus préparé: posséder tous les papiers et m'attendre à d'interminables procédures.

Personal recommendation
Préparer un budget afin d'être prêt à toutes éventualités. Préparer touts les papiers requis avant de quitter pour la Floride. Contacter les professeurs des cours choisis pour savoir s'ils se donnent encore. Vivre près du campus !

Final comments
Les États-Unis étaient, lors de mon séjour et toujours actuellement, dans un période anti-terrorisme. Il n'a pas donc pas été facile d'entrer au pays même en temps que canadienne. Il faut donc préparer son séjour bien à l'avance pour être sûr d'avoir le bon type de VISA.

Personal spending habits
Lorsque tu as l'opportunuité d'être dans un nouveau pays, il est intéressant de pouvoir en profiter pleinement et le visiter. J'ai donc profiter de l'occasion pour aller visiter Everglades National Park, la Louisiane (New Orleans ) et plusieurs villes côtières. Aussi, le logement était beaucoup plus dispendieux qu'au Québec. Finalement, le taux change n'était pas du tout avantageux pour le pauvre argent canadien !

Personal comments
At the beginning, it was a little bit hard, specially during courses because the vocabulary is more specialised and people speack fast and interact eachother. But the oral comprehension improved very quickly and at the end of the semester, i saw a big improvement in the langage. Now, I am fluent in english!

Housing
Type of housing: An individual lease in a four persons apartment
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
As a Graduate student, it's better to live in an apartment, rooms in the campus are designed for undergraduate students.

I live in a complex called "La Mancha". Despite the mess inside the apartment, there is a good international atmosphere and also it is located at five minutes by walk from the campus.

Personal comments
Downtown Gainesville is very busy at night and there is a lot to do if you enjoy hip hop music. As I was under 21 when I went there, I was not allowed to enter all the bars and clubs but I would strongly recommend the "Fat Tuesday" bar and the "Lotus" club on tursday . Otherwise, the university also offered free cinema (every friday) or concerts.
