Sanson says he's arrived in England determined to make a name for himself and admits his time with Aston Villa and in the Premier League has been a real eye opener.
He told Canal+ via Le 10 Sport: "I'm happy with my debut. I am already trying to adapt with the language, to allow me to speak well with my teammates and to integrate myself 100%.
"What was difficult was understanding at first. But now everything is going well, I'm happy."
Sanson has found his way into Aston Villa manager Dean Smith's first team plans, particularly in the absence of injured captain Jack Grealish. But the Frenchman concedes he's still adjusting to the massive step up from what he's known with Marseille and in Ligue 1 football in general.
He continued: "In terms of intensity and volume of work, here it is far above (France) and I would even say that next to training, in gym work, prevention work, strengthening, it's a world above.
"I thought I worked quite hard in France, but I was surprised here! And in the championship, there is more intensity, there is no downtime. Here in England, we do not watch too much Ligue 1, I arrive as a stranger and that gives me more motivation to make myself known here and make my way in the Premier League.
"The objective is to play, I hope that will happen very quickly."
Since his arrival at Villa Park in late January, former France U21 international Sanson, 26, has managed four appearances for the first team in the Premier League, all off the bench, for a total of 44 minutes. He has a contract with Aston Villa to 2025.
