Most of the people outside the university environment spoke good english, I only met few people who did not speak english. At the university everyone spoke english and many were even native speakers. communication at the university with the instructors was best done by email, also after I returned to my home country.

Nearly everybody in Groningen was able to talk in english even at the supermarkets or so. At the University the english level, in my opinion, was really good and connected to the continuous interaction with other international students, I think it was a great language experience.

I┤ve been in private schools since kinder garden, which means I have taken english courses since then. I practice it at home, with movies, internet, friends and in school. It was not a problem at all. Hence, the Netherland┤s language is dutch, they speak english to me everytime.

I improved a lot, especially my oral english : understanding, speaking... The most difficult was maybe to differenciate all the different ways of speaking (people from Spain, China...)

Absolutelly everybody speak English in The Netherlands. Even old people. There was no communication problem at all. Courses at the university were in English, all teachrs were able to speak English. You can survive perfectly without knowing Dutch language.
