After sixth form I'd really like to study at a Uni somewhere in Asia. Unfortunately I don't speak any asian languages. I was wondering if people could give me a few tips on this. Like will I have to take language lessons beforehand and countries which would be easier to live/study etc or advise me to give this idea up totally. Help is appreciated.

which country do you want to go? i am a chinese, i am pretty sure that chinese is a very hard language to learn. if you really want to, you definitely need some language lessons beforehand.

Preferably Japan but I would have thought it be more easier to study in places such as Hong Kong as a majority can speak english.

Not sure that's true.

I think it was J.S. I was speaking to a while back, who is currently in Japan, and he was saying that the majority don't speak English (I think?).

If you're talking about studying over there- wont the lectures etc be conducted in Japanese? I don't think you'll learn too much with a minimal comprehension of the language.

Incidentally, nobody here speaks English, and they know absolutely nothing about the UK. It's so amazing, and questions all the arrogance we have of ourselves.

But then I suppose it depends where you are/what you're doing etc.
