Personal comments
My language improved in fluency and listening/reading understanding. In generall, I can say that the major improvement is a certain security in communication. But I definitly regret to have had far to few social contact with native speakers and speaking mainly with other Europeans.

Because almost everything was more expensive plus a not so good exchange rate. In addition I still wanted to see and expierience some of Liverpool/Britian, rather than sit at home and save money all the time.

I wish I had known...
Liverpool is a city that is expieriencing social tension to a significant degree, which is a fact that I did not fully realised before I went. That makes a more reasonable lifestyle nescessary

There are so many places to go in Liverpool! You can go out and have a great night out the whole week through. I personally liked the Magnet for dancing a lot. Generally the majority of places are for having a loud night out, with dancing, drinking, socialising. The more quiet places for just sitting down and having a chat are harder to find in the evenings.

Housing
Type of housing: Shared house
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Shared house/flat
Why?
It is useful to share a house, because you get to know some people right from the start, which is very nice for doing things together and going out in a city, where you don't know anyone.

Personal comments
We had to find accomodation within two days. That was very stressfull, but I think in the end everyone can manage, because help is provided by the university. I found the average rent rather expensive, even though I was living in a not especially safe area. But it was alright, because there were a lot of other european students living close by, which was good for getting to know people and sharing taxi.
