Is growing sprouts in my bedroom a good idea or will it result in hellacious odors and weeping and gnashing of teeth?

OK, my health counselor recommended that I try growing my own sprouts as a good supplement to my diet. I agree; I like sprouts.
But I'm rather skeptical of this grow-your-own business. How do wet beans and seeds not get moldy? I'd rather not disturb my host family with pernicious smells.
I've read some stuff on www.sproutpeople.com and it seems fairly straightforward, but I wanted to see if anyone had personal anecdotes or suggestions to get started. To make things more complicated, I'm in France and therefore not sure how readily available sprouting apparati will be. I can get dried beans/grains very easily, but I'm not so sure about the container.
Any tips or advice would be most appreciated. Thanks!
