Which country would be best to study in, France or Germany?
I suppose I've got quite a vague question. I'm currently trying to think of ideas on how to spend my year abroad. I study French and beginners' German and I've decided that I'd like to spend a semester studying at a university in either France or Germany, and spend the rest of the year working in the country I haven't yet visited. However I'm not sure which country would be best to study in. Of course I've only been learning German for a year, so I'd like to spend the German part of my year abroad really improving my language ability. So would it be more beneficial for a beginner to study in a country where the language they're learning is spoken, or work in it? Would studying at a university give more exposure to the language and immerse you in it more than working? Also if anyone has any experience of studying in either France or Germany it'd be great to hear your experience :)
