For my friends in non-english speaking countries, I was wondering whether comp. sci. courses in your country are taught entirely in native languages or native languages and english. For non-english classes, are there lots of english textbooks translated into native languages or are there authors producing textbooks in native languages?

Wondering about the realistic opportunities for Americans to study something like Comp. Sci. outside the U.S. without being fluent in the local language.

Franklin College in Lugano Switzerland ? Not sure of their curriculum
but all courses are taught in English, I believe.

French universities usually teach in French, regardless of the course.

Merci,

The French generally hate any other language so they even create words in French for new concepts. Maybe not the "Le Internet" though?

In Germany most courses would be taught in German unless explicitly mentioned.

Students would (depending on the paper) sometimes use text books or articles etc in English. On a graduate level (if one was writing the Masters or Phd thesis) more happens in English.

Cheers
Kai

Depending on the institution the bachelor program might be in English or Dutch, and the master program is in English.

Dick. That's the one word we do not have a translation for.

Merci,
