    I was thinking of studying in Europe (Denmark/Netherlands) as the tuition fees are cheaper and the courses are taught in English. My concern is that I don't have the language for either of these countries and also am not very fast and picking up new languages. Has anyone else done this study abroad and how have you found it? Is not having the language quite isolating or are there enough people who will speak English to you? Also how are the unis compared to the UK in term of student life and events and stuff?
    Thanks would love to chat to any one about this if you know about the topic

    You shouldn't worry about the language. The Netherlands and Denmark are on of the best non-native english speakers in the world so you should be fine, atleast in big cities i.e. Amsterdam & Kopenhagen. In more rural areas it could be a bigger issue. But generally at unis most students and professors speak competent english.
