Take full-year instead of just one semester...
Leuven is a small city, so you get to know it very easily! Also, it's a city full of students and many of them are International, so you have the chance to meet a lot of people and cultures and you have many chances to interact with them as many activities are organised for students in a regular basis.
The things they taught were very interesting. A lot of work was practical. I liked that part very much.
