I had no significant problems communicating. True, at the beginning it was a bit more difficult, especially reading academic material in a language other than my mother tongue, but at the end it was all right.

My English language skills are very good, because I went to High School in the US at age 17. However, if you are used to American English, it's difficult to adjust to British English.
