The language policy of the EU is supposed to be realized through programs such as ERASMUS. If national or university policies are inconsistent with EU policy, however, the European aim is unlikely to be achieved. Having briefly presented the EU language policy lying behind the ERASMUS program and the national language policies of Denmark and Sweden, this paper gives an overview of the language policies towards exchange students at four Scandinavian universities and considers their effects on incoming exchange students' language learning and language use.
