French and German, BA HonsBy Larissa Boettcher On 17th June 18
I have enjoyed my course so far, I found there were a variety of options for french and abinitio German which included studying history, culture, linguistics etc. I found german as a beginner challenging but ultimately worth it. I had an hour a day of german with a small class of 10 (5/6 show up every day)

This course is great! The unfortunate thing is that there isn't a great focus on actual language learning, we have a grammar class and an oral class, but we spend more time doing history on this course (which I absolutely hate!). If you are willing to learn about the culture and perhaps prioritise this over the language itself it is the perfect course for you.

A busy but enjoyable course that's good for those who don't want to stick to just one subject. The work load is a bit heavier due to a mix of disciplines but still enjoyable nonetheless.

Lovely degree program in a well supported environment, and a good combination of departments through both English Literature and French.

If you're picking this subject just because you were good at it at school and you're familiar with it, don't! Studying languages at university is a lot different from school! If you really want to see a significant improvement in your skills, then you've got to do the work alone. Uni is about independent work, but you'll find yourself wondering what you're actually paying £9k for! I've been doing this course for a year and I've barely heard myself speak a single word of the languages I'm learning. The uni environment doesn't really encourage you to even want to speak, and you'll hardly get any opportunities to anyway. There are barely any modules where the work actually feels like university standard. There's nothing encouraging you to think differently or inspiring you with new ideas, it's all pretty dull. A Levels was a lot harder than this as well! Basically I'm dropping out of this course. Good luck to anyone doing it next year!
