Hi i'm a 21 yo guy whose been working in a Hotel in the US for 2 years and now I;m moving to europe again.

I;m not sure wether to move to london or copenhagen?? ANy IDEAS...

I just wanna get a job,get a place to live and be able to continue my studies... Im italian by the way...

Anyone knows how difficult it is to start in london.. ive heard its a little rough.. ive got a friend living there so at least i would know someone...
in copenhagen too, but i;m a little bit scared with the language, coz i have no clue on how to speak in danish.. i was checking out a school there which is free and they have classes in english.. but my main concern is that i wont be able to get a job if i dont speak danish...

I would advise you go to London and you will get a job very easy and with your skills from the USA you could strike very lucky.
After setting yourselve up then you might jump a cheapie flight to Copenhagen for a week just to see whats on offer and take it from their.

I don't know what you changes are to get a job in Copenhagen.
But people in Denmark speak verry good english so don't expect to much problems comunicating.

I don't think it is easy nor impossible to get a job in Copenhagen
without speaking danish. Why don't you try to write to some of the
hotels there and offering yourself for a job - that is send a
job-application. Some of them will probably not even answer, but I
think it will give you a feeling for whether there is a job-market for
you or not. (I remember I once got a job in London that way).

You'll get a job more easily in London as the hostels are always looking for staff. However if you genuinely have the choice then its got to be Copenhagen. Denmark is wonderful and the air is so much cleaner than smoggy London.
