our current Ministry of Interieuere.

If you want to watch such discusions, please don't eat before

If I go to the Uni-Strasbourg and see IT-Students are studying
Informatic 100% in english because only 1% does know english exist!
It is realy frustrating here.

I am not sure that such things will change in the next 10 years.

I feel realy alone here in Strasbourg, THE CAPITAL OF EUROPE!
