Where is the mistake?

A foreign student was attended a language school in Oxford.

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.

"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.
