    Self-taught only :cool:

    So how is History in UEA? What does the course contains? I'm so interested, I wanted to do an History degree before

    Gosh, you should see my bedroom
    Ooh, if I only I had the time to learn another language haha :rolleyes:

    It sounds amazing, it had everything that I wanted to learn in it - French Revolution, Russian Revolution, Native Americans, The Crusades, Witchcraft... I love it What made you choose Japanese over History?

    Ahahaha, same. To get to my bed it involves a combination of hopping, jumping and flying. Or things get crushed. No jokes

    It just takes a lot time and dedication (though now it's not the best time, since you doing A2, even I am having a hard time to carry on with my self learning)

    French + Russian Revolution and The Crusades sounds lovely :love:

    Well, first it was History, then Politics, but I became extremely interested in Japan, so Japanese took over me I'm also keen in learning different languages(I am Portuguese), and different cultures have always fascinated me

    Maybe I'll learn another language at uni. Though I want to carry on learning Latin (sounds a bit pretentious I know haha) and then maybe Russian or something. How long have you been teaching yourself?

    I think so too, though usually I'm only interested in things pre-1800 and now I'm interested in a bit of modern history, so it might be a really mixed module course in the end.

    I had a bit of jumping about with courses as well, but in the end I couldn't really choose anything but History. So I assume you speak Portugese? Do you speak other languages apart from Portugese, English and Japanese? It's quite a good mix though

    I understand Spanish, and a bit of Italian (Romance languages are all similar in a way) but that's all

    Nothing wrong with that, it's not as if you're working towards an exam or anything Wow, thanks I thought it might come in useful studying early History, and another thing to add to my list.

    I know, Spanish and Italian are so similar it's pretty easy to learn one once you know the other. You know more than a lot of people for sure :love:

    Don't worry about it! At least studying the languages at degree level should enable you to get into work easily other there in some aspects, rather than going over there and having to got to a language school for a year before working

    I want to teach History, not sure if at secondary or college level though, depends if I need to do an extra year of study or not :rolleyes:

    For teaching I think you need A PGCE( or something like that) It's basically an extra year of study. Apparently is very hard work

    Good on you if you go for it. I like the idea of moving abroad, but I think I would be too concerned about having the money and things before I would do it. Hahaha, probably a bit bizarre but whatever, if you want to do it you can handle being the odd one out :cool:

    Fair enough What subjects do you currently study? I was looking for things about unis as well, and I ended up finding out loads about one that I'm not going to haha.

    I don't know why I created an account half the time, I guess to post really, but then I've had so many negs on a few posts I wonder why I bothered. So many haters at times lol. Indeed

    Hahaha, don't worry about Media Studies
    What entry requirements do you need for Japanese and Korean then?
    What course/exam board did you do for Lit? I hate AQA and Lit B with an absolute passion.

    In think I went to no gems, it just shows that opinion on TSR is heavily divided really :rolleyes: I respect people's opinions, but if someone really, REALLY irritates me then I'll neg them. I generally give pos rep :cool:
