My family, friends and food

What about the Uni?

The classes and the pace of life there.

What is the most exciting thing you have experienced so far in this experience?

Exciting and stressful to be able to communicate with new people in another language, also to live in a university house where you get to live with 60 people, all thinking completely different and with different cultures from 15 different countries. We created a huge family.

And the hardest part?

The language
