Course recommendations
Les cours pour undergraduate sont généralement beaucoup plus facile que ceux dispensés au Canada. Il ne faut donc pas hésiter avant de prendre une session à temps complet.

Overall
I wish I had known...
Probably I would have liked to get to know more local people. As I met many of them but at the same time many other weren't that interested in getting to know foreigners.

Final comments
My experience at UF was extremely fulfilling. I improved my English skills, I travelled around Florida and some other parts of the US (even though getting a cheap flight from Gainesville is quite difficult and you might have to go to Jacksonville or Orlando to get the best deals).The courses were very interesting and exciting.
