The language experience in Linz was fairly because I was Irish alot of the erasmus spoke english to be so it was hard to practice my language but as the year went on I became more confident and I spoke more of the language and I wasn't scared to speak it to the local students as well.

Be warned that the Austrian dialekt is very different to the "hoch" Deutsch that we all learn in college. It will take a while to get used to the local dialekt but Austrians will always make a genuine effort to speak clearly to you so that you will understand.

I was surprised how fast you learn a language and become confident by speaking and hearing a language all the time. The only thing I've had problems with is the Austrian dialect.

The Austrian dialect is very difficult to get to grips with but becomes easier to understand the more of it you hear. My language has improved as a result of my stay in Austria.
