    :zomg: that's awful :console:

    I googled the screen machine...better than nothing I suppose? I initially thought it would be like a drive in cinema or something similar :holmes:
    As a cinema its fine, a bit small. Its just very infrequent - in fact they seem to time visits perfectly to coincide with when the films come out on dvd...

    Ah you write so eloquently, and mmmm foreign literature :awesome:

    And YES! J'aime le subjonctif! Umm... for you... 'ich liebe den konjunktiv?' (my german is atrocious), but yes, it just sounds so good I always try slipping a few subjunctives in just for the sake of being difficult and seriously, who wants to use simple grammar anyway?

    I get a bit too excited about languages sometimes... yesterday i sent my friend a huge 'OMG!!!!' message just because i recognised loan words in Russian from Sanskrit...

    BEYOND JEALOUS!
    I'm jealous too! If/hopefully when I go to interviews it will be only my second time visiting Oxford university...


    ETA: Better than Cambridge international applicants though! They don't even get an interview at the university. Their first time at the university may very well be after they get an offer! O_O

    Can't they also choose to visit the uni for interviews? They don't have to do the Skype interview, do they? Couldn't you also choose to do a Skype interview? But I wouldn't do that, would be sooooo weird skyping with a Tutor, and what happens if there are internet connection problems :eek:

    I'm seeing it on Sunday then rushing off to London the same afternoon for the start of my Multinational Youth Exchange I'll let you guys know how that goes! Will be visiting OXford for the SIXTH time this year
    What I don't understand is how you manage to lead such a busy life yet still frequent our little forum more than anyone else bar Julie??!!! =L =P

    Good luck on your exchange btw, I've always wanted to do one, but for some reason after 4 years of postal-intercourse (what a phrase) my French penfriend just suddenly decided not to write back in spite of an extra desperate letter of mine...

    I guess things just weren't meant to be. =(

    Och, at least the tourists like it...

    Pssht. I just end up staying up later, I suppose

    It's not really an exchange for my friend and me; we're just travelling to Ealing every day. Other kids from the EU are coming to stay in London though.

    That's sad I've been to stay with my German exchange twice now, met up with her three times. My new Spanish exchange on the other hand sends me one-word emails...

    No, Cambridge apparently has tutors in the different countries. (Well, at least in Toronto, Canada). I find that's boring. True you save time and money by not flying out, but where's the experience of living AND eating at your college, meeting other applicants, usw. (thought I'd jump on the bandwagon)?



    Yeah I definitely wouldn't do that, it would be so awkward! D: Though if you're really stuck on a question, you can log out and blame it on internet connection problems! :lol:

    mmm a 2 hour bus journey, and then something like a 3 hour train? well, more probably, because there's always 1 or 2 switches

    :getmecoat:
    there's nothing wrong with loving perfect grammar! I have a book on Latin verbs... it's humungous! They love their grammar! Although... i swear all 'examples' refer to fights and empires, it's a shame, nowhere does it show me how to order a cheeseburger :lol: haha!

    Seriously considering bringing my new psych textbook to class... not that worried about the weird looks my classmates are bound to give me, more the fact that it's heavy and I already have a chemistry textbook. I don't have a better time to read it though. I'm finished all my other books, except for crit thinking, and I'm not about to bring that to class! XD I wouldn't be able to concentrate on any of the exercises. :no:

    Hahaha that seems like a great idea for Skype interviews Or just have a buddy in the room with a second laptop who sends you the right answers on Skype chat But I think the Tutors are aware of that kind of temptation
