    Study a foreign language in a foreign country

    Iím Swiss and Iím strongly thinking about studying at an University in the UK (btw first choiceís be Sussex)
    As i'd like to study either Development Studies with French or International Relations and French, my question is:

    Has anyone experiences in studying a language (not your mother language!) in a country witch doesnít speak your mother language either?

    my example: i speak GERMAN, would like to study FRENCH in the UK (ENGLISH)

    i am pretty good at languages, my English is sufficient, Iím doing the advanced certificate at the moment.. But still I imagine it could be difficult... any thoughts?

    How come you have written "English" as your first language in your profile? This seems to be becoming more and more frequent by learners. It makes it difficult to answers usefully. In fact, I'm going to ask (again) if the adminstrator will change the wording of that question.

    Why study French in the UK? Not that I have anything against the idea, I'm just curious.
