The language experience has shown me the best is to practice English is when meeting new people there, making new friends... At University, besides Business Studies and marketing, i have also taken such course as English for presentations etc., that helped me to feel more free afterwards and now.

Course recommendations
Please, do not choose the courses which you are not really interested in, do not follow other your friend if you want to study with them, it will create some problems when prepraing to a session time or writing assiignments. Better is to take a course which you keen on and are sure you will manage well!:)

More attention to Erasmus students who are coming to study a language... it is not easy to adjust a new environment and study marketing with a proper English, just little more attention..

Final comments
1. Surf the Internet in order to find a cheapest flight option. If your College is in Birmingham, it is cheaper to fly from Riga to East Midlands airport then from London- Stansted. 2. Always check the bus schedules. 3. Have a map with you, just in case!
