Language difficulties

Social

KEY:
No problems.

width="10" alt=""> I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.

Educational

Administrative / Institutional

Overall

Language of instruction: English

Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.

How much did you improve your English?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)

Personal comments:
There was a big mix of students in Manchester - from all over the UK. You get used to a lot of slangs. It is important to stay a way from people who speek your own language because you easily find yourself speakting (in my case) German. Get yourself involved in a sport team or another social team where there are hardly any internationals - that is important!!

The University of Manchester still requires students abroad to pay the prepayment for the hall of residence per cheque which is quite expensive abd oldfashioned in Austria
