Very accurate information redarging exchange students...I went on Exchange for 6 months and spent a lot of my time with other English-speaking people (totally baffling everyone who I was meant to be friends with).

Where did you go, what were you studying, and how did you happen to connect with other English-speakers?

I was in Belgium, just doing normal school (Speaking French). I went into Brussels a fair bit and there were HEAPS of exchange students there. We also did quite a few activities with the organisation....so everyone there spoke English too!
Are you planning to go on exchange somewhere? If you are - DO IT!!! It is the absolutely BEST THING in the WHOLE WORLD!!!

In my experience not all exchange students are the same. Take for example students from Japan who come to the UK. They tend to be extremely busy people, always on the go. But the UK students they work alongside are lazy, and generally apathetic. Is Britain just deep down lazy?
