Using English does not pose a problem to me at all since this is the language that I use in my home university. However, with the European students who are more familiar with their own native languages obviously, an effort must be made on my part to try to understand the message that they are bringing across. Thus, for a preject meeting to end well, I have to take the initiative to start the ball rolling and give constructive ideas during the meeting. But it is important to know that they often have great ideas as well, but they just need a little more time to express themselves using English. However, the Danes have an exceptionally good standard of English relative to other Europeans, thus, communication with the adminstration poses no problem at all.

linguistic immersion is the only effective way to learn a language. I could read english and express myself a bit but after this erasmus experience, I was able to communicate, understand native speakers and chat with them rather correctly. since danish do not have english as a mother tongue language (though they have a solid knowledge of it) and that they are reluctant to speak with foreigners, I spoke english mostly with other erasmus students (most of them are coming from spain)

It found difficult to understand and to speak in English. But later I got use to the different accents. Everybody spoke English. When they spoke in Danish I could not understand a word, but I learnt a few words and expressions although it is not enough to have a conversation. I was more concentrated in English and in French because I took all my classes in English and one of my courses was French Language.

I have good English skills(the language of instruction) before, so, this aspect wasn't a big concern for me although having the opportunity to improve it was one of the main reasons to study abroad. English is understood and spoken in a bilingual level for almost everyone, so, communication was not a problem. I took some basic Danish classes too.

I think my spoken English has really been improved a lot since I went there. As Denmark is a small country, I couldn't find so many people who speak my language there and must communicate in English almost all the time. It's a good chance to practice.
