    I am at Bredford College.

    Does the following text sound natural? (Do we have necessarily to say "I go to Bredford College" or "I study at Bredford College"?):

    Hi, my name is Caroline Darcy and I am at Bredford College. I am currently studying Spanish, French and Chinese Literature.

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: I am at Bredford College.

    It sounds OK to me. It's ambiguous, of course. It could mean that you're studying there. It could simply mean that is where you are currently located. However, the rest of the sentence makes it clearer that it is where you study.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
