Course recommendations
Courses at graduate level at the college of engineering are pretty good. Professors are well prepared and interact a lot with students. However sometimes lectures are a bit too slow.

I thought my Englsih was perfect, but I got a lot of comments on especially my writing skills. Also the strange accents and the really fast way of talking were a new experience in the beginning. But overall, I didn't experience many problems

Personal comments
Durant mon séjour à Gainesville, j'ai pu profiter de leurs cafés pour faire quelques lectures, sentiers pour marcher et nombreuse piscine pour se rafraîchir ! Ce qui est à ne pas manquer surtout à University of Florida ce sont surout les évènements sportifs. Il faut absolument assiter à une partie des Gators de football ou de basketball. L'ambiance en vaut la peine !
