Will a rise in UK students going to university abroad help foreign language learning?
Whilst one of the main attractions for British students is that the lectures, seminars and administration can all be done in English, studying and living in a foreign country will surely call for some level of proficiency in the local language.
It has been widely documented that universities in Holland, such as Maastricht, are already seeing an increase in the number of British students, an article in the Guardian in March 2011 stated that the universities of Valencia and Milan are also seeing a rise in UK interest.
Although it’s a shame that for some British students, attending a university in the UK is no longer even an option, might the rising numbers of Brits in foreign universities help the current situation regarding foreign language learning in the UK?
