People in the Netherlands can speak perfect English in their daily life and also in the classes that I have chosen. In my university the language that we use is also English. So I have never faced any diffuculty at all. Moreover I favour the multilingual environment in Erasmus.

I could already Dutch before applying for the exchange programme and thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to improve my language skills. All of the courses are taught in English, so there isnt really a problem if you don't speak Dutch and wish to study in The Netherlands.

In the Netherlands every single person can speak English. I didnt find anyone who didn┤t. I improved my English very much, as i was always in contact with international students. Moreover, my roomate was from Canada, so that was an important support for my enlgish too.

The local language was Dutch, but to learn it was not a goal. The aim was to improve English. Considering DUtch people are bilingual, English was like another local language. My English improved more after 5 months in Holland than after 5 years studying.

My bachelor was fully taught in english. Living in Holland gave me the opportunity to improve my english level very much, since all the population had a correct level. So I use english in my day to day life, also with classmates, friends and teachers.

I never had difficulty in the language of instructions in the university as they use the English language which is the language of instructions in my home university. Moreover, I am more comfortable in English as we also speak English at home.
