    Just a side note, I tend to notice that the University forums are dominated by the closest year of entry for students (in this case 2010 is the closest). Just wait till Septemeber/August and you'll see 2011 threads pop up!

    I've applied for 2011 Linguistics too! :cool:
    but the only University that we have in common is SOAS and I've applied to do Linguistics with Japanese - but it still hasn't even been acknowledged! :eek: :rolleyes:

    apart from that I've applied to Newcastle and Sheffield; and York and UCL for just straight Linguistics :love:

    what are you doing in your Gap Year?

    Ooh have you done any Japanese before? I've studied Italian and Madarin Chinese and i'm still doing Latin and French, so I was thinking of taking up a new language but I ended up pussying out... I was originally applying to SOAS for Ling. and Turkish.

    Yeah Linguistics should be awesome
    I'm thinking during gap i'm going to spend some time in a french speaking country, maybe do some english lang teaching in a primary school or something... have you got any plans?

    hmm not really! :o: I did take a twenty week course in basic Japanese (the first ten weeks on spoken, the second ten weeks on written) but thankfully you don't need any background knowledge to take it up at uni :yeah:

    omg you've done so many languages! Have you studied them all at school? My school only offers French and German and I can't stand German so I've really only done one! :o:

    Wow, Turkish sounds fascinating! I bet you'll regret not taking it! :p: Although I'm sure you'll be able to take it up at a club or something if you're still interested

    Sounds good... I'm going to India for 12 months to work in orphanages and teach English in primary schools :yep:
    That's only if I manage to raise £4000 by May though... :eek:

    Yeah my school is a 'language college'. When I was in year 8 we started offering more and more languages. I think overall we do Latin, French, Italian, Chinese, German, Spanish and there is an Ancient Greek club. I can understand basic Spanish and German even though i've never learnt them because my Latin is so good.

    Oh yeah Turkish looked good cuz its basically an asian language with the latin alphabet. But I got too nervous... I wasn't sure if I could do it for 4 years and i might get a weird language overload :P I was going to apply to do Gaelic or Portuguese as well but just was too scared...

    Ah wow you really have it sorted do you speak fluent Punjabi?
