The young Ghanaian acknowledged the difficulty of studying in a new language. This burden was lessened with a ten-month language preparatory course prior to studies, he stated in an interview.

The first year was the toughest because we were put in the same group with Russians and the lecturers never slowed down. I barely understood what was taught at lectures.”
