  1. Yeah, I know Guildford. It's quite close to me. I'm about 10 minutes away from Kingston? That's pretty impressive that you taught yourself most of the language! I would say that I'm better at French than German but couldn't really contemplate not studying them both. I go to a private all-girls school, you might have heard of it, Sir William Perkins's. Where do you go?
    We're reading Der Besuch der Alten Dame in German. I've read a couple of Frisch plays as well which I love and also am reading Die Verwandlung and Die Leiden des jungen Werthers. I've read a couple of Goethe's poems too. I feel like I'm really behind on extra reading though! Is there anything in particular you would recommend me?
    I haven't sent the essays yet; I'm just waiting for them to get marked and to get the cover sheets done by my teachers. My German one is on the Wall and ob die Mauer in den Koepfen noch da ist. How about you? How many words did you write?

    Took me a while to realise I actually posted this on my own profile. Oh dear. Oxford, here I come.

    About me
    Hi!

    Please check out my official Oxford Twitter (@OxfordLinguist) where I carry out Outreach by answering questions and destroying myths about Oxbridge, as well as Tweeting about my daily life

    I read German and Spanish at Magdalen College at Oxford just going into my second year as of October 2013. I'm specialising in Golden Age Spanish literature and German literature post 1730, with a special focus on Cervantes, Góngora, Goethe and Mann.

    I hope to become a conference interpreter.

    Interests
    I like directing plays, birthdays, learning new words, flying to Europe, speaking German, talking to random people in Waitrose to find out where their accents are from, European boys (especially my boyfriend), power-reading, listening to music and foreign radio, the news and current affairs, debating, the etymology of words, learning to drive, make-up, fashion, going for walks and learning new languages



    (Apologies for the ticker's poor grammar; I don't think it speaks German very well.)
