Social
KEY:

I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Was learning Swedish a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Swedish
How much did you improve your Swedish?
My level before: Did not speak it
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
One of the most obvious points is that the Swedes have an extremely good level of English. This means conversations will most likley lead to English and so to practice Swedish takes an extra effort. Otherwise, it is a failry simple lanugage gramatically, but not the easiest for pronunciation.

Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life

Personal recommendation:
Should give opportunity through scholarship to the poor countries like Nepal. So that the students there could rise themselves in parallel to other developed countries.



FINAL COMMENTS

I am trying to apply for internship but could not access to proper information sites, I have to devote hours like this filling up forms and I don't know whether this will materializes or not. University help us in this context but they are all in local language. Every body here in the university can speak English as such if the messages would have been given in English then could have helped international student more.
