The best sentence to describe this experience in general is "Living together", you share the flat with people from different parts of the world so as you can imagine it is a "life experience" with everything that this could mean... good and bad moments. It helps to increase your tolerance and learning from each other. Something important to try to understand another´s person view is listening, also speaking honestly about how you feel in relation with some situation or episode can help "to clear the water" and start again from a better point. Respect other people´s space, objects, religion.
