Course recommendations
All of the courses about that I had took were good, but if I have to choose the best one I would say that was "relationships between minorities and mayorities"

Personal comments
As I spoke Finnish before, I was able to visit also Finnish classes - quite valuable. To get one Finnish speaking his/her language with a foreigner is a little bit complicate, but once you insist, they help you a lot with it and (most of them) have patience doing so ;)

5.0/5
Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Because I really think that it is the best way to do an international experience. You may meet people and it is not expensive since you can devide the rent with the other flatmates.

Personal comments
It was a great experience, because I lived for seven months in a flat with other five guys from Czech Republic, France, England, Greece and Esthonia. Living in a multiciltural flat I enlarged my mind and, first of all, I improved a lot my english language.
