Most of the time the ERASMUS exchange is possible only if the student has already got a good knowledge of the language he/she will have to speak in the host university, which can be a problem if you goal is to learn (or improve) this language. Otherwise, I had some problems at the beginning but everyone (Professors, other students,...) were aware of that and helped me improve my skills.

I had no problems in most social occasions, but find it difficult to express myself in seminars. Also I find that an ability to speak the language does not mean you are familiar with their culture; therefore, I often find the culture aspect the biggest problem of all.

Very good. You will improve your language by reading, preparing essays, and also in the day to day student life. But, it is importante to notice that most of the time your student life will include more overseas students, and not many natives.

Studying in London gave me a knowledge of everyday life spoken English (including slang) which I would never have picked up to the same extent if I were to learn in from television for example.

Loved learning a much richer version of my native tounge: English. Comparing language notes was the topic for much discussion!

I had no language and communication problems because I was proficient in English before beginning my programme at the host university.
