    I'm considering studying abroad for the next semester. I speak english and spanish fluently but I would rather expose myself to a third language. I'm pretty much open to any city. What do you guys recommend?

    Paris.

    That's where I'm hoping to, at least.

    Rome or Venice.

    London.

    Just because I've always wanted to go there and no other reason.

    Also had a cousin who studied in China. Beijing, I believe. Maybe that's a bit too different for you, OP? :p

    Somewhere in italy, stay out of England since your goals are probably to expose yourself to a different culture and language, and to avoid shitty countries.

    I exposed myself to Singapore and was severely beaten.

    Great city, great student-friendly nightlife, friendly people.

    HK could be good, too... Sort of a soft introduction to East Asia.
