TRIEU Thanh Ngoan, Master of Information Technology, 2018 – 2019
With the cooperation between UBO and CTU (Can Tho University, Vietnam) and with Erasmus+ funding, I had a chance to come to UBO to study for a five-month period. This has totally changed my mind about studying and living abroad with the French language. I encountered many difficulties during the first few days after my arrival in France and the problems were always arising because of the language barrier. However, I dealt with that by attending a free French course offered by the University. The most important part was the lectures, they were all in French and I could not understand anything. I went to meet professors after classes and asked for an explanation in English. It took me more time but this way I understood the lectures since I studied them twice. I would like to say thanks to all of my professors at UBO since they are extremely nice. They spent a lot of time to help me with the lectures and even provided me with the English versions of the exams. I really want to say thanks to my tutor Prof. Bernard Pottier, who always helped me whenever I needed, and who spent time to give me a car-trip around Brest city. I would also like to thank all of you, who always stayed by us and helped us on time.
