As I have mentioned I have been studying in the Netherlands and the language I was using for my study was English. It is not a secret that in the Netherlands each person speaks fluently English and hardly a foriner starts speaking to them in bad Dutch they automatically start speaking English. In addition I was learning at that time German. German and Dutch have very many common words and in order not to mix the languages and Dutch habit to speak to foriners in English may be led to my poor knowledge of Dutch language.

The professor in charge of teaching the local language (german) was not clear all the time, so it was hard to understand her, it was also a bit frustrating because she didn't create the correct environment to learn (she laughed at the students when they made a mistake, causing some students to drop the course)

You can meet here many people from France and from spanish-speaking countries ,so it is better when you speak these languages too,but when you are good at english,I think,that it is not a problem to communicate with other exchange students.

At first, I wanted to choose lessons in both languages: english and german. But all the lessons which interested me were in english. But you can also take lessons in german if you want to.
