"Yo conocí a muchos estudiantes ingleses."
Translation:I met many English students.
When you accidentally mix up "conocí" and "cociné" and really think they said "I cooked many English students"...
May someone please elaborate on whether this means 'students studying english' or 'students based in England'?
Just like in the English language, "English students" could mean multiple things. You would have to use the context of the conversation to figure out which one they mean. :-)
