I guess A foreign ,I think it's better to say The foreign , May be I am wrong , I am not native English.

 

'A' or 'The' are both acceptable depending on what you are refering to. 'The' refers to a specific person, mentioned before.

 

It's a problem with the tense, you can have:

 

A foreign student attended a language school in Oxford.

 

or

 

A foreign student was attending a language school in Oxford

- usually though with the past continuous you have something else in the sentence, such as: The foreign student was attending a language school in Oxford when she fell and broke her leg.

 

Hello Evgenia:

 

  You can write it correctly in at least 2 ways, but not the way you have it.

 

You can write:

  A foreign student was attending a language school in Oxford.

 

   or

 

  A  foreign student  attended a language school in Oxford.

 

    You could abandon the word   "attended"  and communicate the idea in other ways,  but using

"attended," this is about all you can do with the sentence.

 

 

 

"A foreign student attended a language school in Oxford" or "A foreign student was attending a language school in Oxford". Either is correct, depending on the kind of past action you are talking about.
