We very much enjoyed our five-months stay at the University of Colombo's English department. The unique fields of study such as Language Planning or South Asian Literature have turned out to be a great addition for our degree courses. The Art faculty's small class sizes also contributed to the overall learning atmosphere. Besides the academics, our journey into the versatile and eclectic parts of Sri Lankan culture (and cuisine!) have been an overall enriching experience. We are grateful to be given this opportunity by the University of Colombo and will miss the city's eccentricities, the beautiful countryside and the hospitality of the Sri Lankan people. Bohoma istuti!
